Strange Clay: Ceramics in Contemporary Art will be the first large-scale group exhibition in the UK to explore how contemporary artists have used the medium of clay in inventive and unexpected ways. Featuring 23 international artists working across recent decades, the exhibition will examine the ‘plasticity’ and the possibilities of clay and ceramics – from fantastical creatures to uncanny representations of the everyday, and from poetic forms to large-scale installations that take the medium ‘beyond the kiln’.

The exhibition will feature works by Aaron Angell, Salvatore Arancio, Leilah Babirye, Jonathan Baldock, Lubna Chowdhary, Woody De Othello, Edmund de Waal, Emma Hart, Rachel Kneebone, Serena Korda, Klara Kristalova, Beate Kuhn, Takuro Kuwata, Liu Jianhua, Lindsey Mendick, Ron Nagle, Magdalene Odundo, Grayson Perry, Shahpour Pouyan, Ken Price, Brie Ruais, Betty Woodman, and David Zink Yi.
