Project: Ceramics Club
White Columns is excited to present our second project with Ceramics Club, CC22. This fundraising exhibition will open on Friday, September 23 from 6 – 8pm, and be on view at White Columns from September 23 – October 29. During the show over 300 ceramics will be available for sale, as well as a limited edition T-shirt and a new zine that commemorates Ceramics Club’s past projects with photos, ephemera, and a selection of text. Ceramics Club will donate all proceeds from sales to the non-profit organizations Walk the Walk, Defend the Atlanta Forest, Greenwich House Pottery, Critical Resistance, Equality Florida, Trust Women, and Spilka. Like Ceramics Club’s first presentation at White Columns in 2015, all artworks are presented and sold anonymously, and the exhibition will empty as the ceramics are purchased and removed.*
Ceramics Club is an informal association of artists who meet irregularly at the Greenwich Pottery House in the West Village. It was founded in 2007 by artists Trisha Baga and Pam Lins at The Cooper Union, as a group interested in using ceramics as a way to “socially interact, make material, collaborate, and see what happens from there.” Ceramics Club “models itself on propositions gleaned from amateur “clubs” that in organizing, were interested in dismantling and opposing professionalism – withdrawing distinctions regarding quality, institutions, representations, etc.”
Since 2015 Ceramics Club has been partnering with non-profit arts organizations to present fundraising events and exhibitions, where ceramic artworks created by the members of Ceramics Club are sold to benefit charitable organizations. Ceramics Club combines the collective making of objects with fundraising, performance, craft, community, and comedy. CC has had shows and fundraising events at White Columns, MoMA PS1, Greenwich House Pottery, A.I.R. Gallery, and more.
