Glazed & Confused: Ceramics in Contemporary Art Practice

13 Dec 2014 - 1 Feb 2015

The exhibition showcased the creative outcomes of an Artist Residency Partnership between Hazelhurst and the Ceramics Design Studio Gymea, Sydney TAFE, led by artist Lynda Draper.

The project commenced in 2012 with Lynda Draper inviting established artists to undertake a residency to experiment with the clay medium while giving them access to the technical knowledge of the Ceramics Design Studio staff and students, as well as specialised equipment and purpose built studios. The resulting cross-pollination of industry knowledge, concepts, media and processes produced an exciting and varied response from the artists which was present in Glazed and Confused. 

The work produced during the residency was exhibited widely including Leahlani Johnson’s solo exhibition at Paris CONCRET in France; David Capra, Jodie Whalen and Leahlani Johnson’s solo exhibitions at Artereal Galley; Sarah Contos works at Roslyn Oxley9 and Spring 1883 Melbourne; Chris Dolman and Paul Williams’ SAFARI collaboration at Alaska Projects; Paul Williams’ solo exhibition at Gallery 9; Connie Anthes and Justin Coopers collaborative work at Archive Space, Harriet Body’s exhibition at MOP and Emily Hunt who exhibited her ceramic works from the residency in PRIMAVERA 2014 at the MCA.

Other artists featured in Glazed and Confused included Glenn Barkley & NOT, Karen Black, Josie Cavallaro, Rosie Deacon & Giselle Stanborough, Mikala Dwyer, Marc Etherington, Frank Nowlan, Tom Polo, Madeline Preston, Joan Ross and Peter Sharp.
