Clash explores contemporary Australian ceramic sculpture - each work selected contains a clash or contradiction between the materiality of the work, its subject matter and/or its meaning. Beneath the whimsical and often beautiful surface of these ceramic objects lurk ideas and provocations regarding identity, sexuality and even violence. Contemporary artists represented in the exhibition are Tracie Bertram, Penny Byrne, Margaret Dodd, Michael Doolan, Myfanwy Gullifer, Vicki Hamilton, Danie Mellor, Jenny Orchard, Pam Sinnott and Gerry Wedd. Additional works from the collection, including work by John Perceval, will also be on display.
