La Maison Rouge, Paris, France
Under the title CERAMIX, the Bonnefantenmuseum (Maastricht - NL), the Cité de la Céramique ,(Sèvres - F), and the Maison Rouge (Paris - F) are presenting a mega exhibition about the use of ceramics by artists of the 20th and 21st century.
From 9 March 2016 to 12 June 2016 la maison rouge shows a selection of over 200 top pieces from international museums and private collections (including Victoria & Albert Museum in London, Museo Internazionale della ceramica in Faenza, Petit Palais in Paris, Marck Larock-Granoff, Isabelle Maeght, Alain Tarica and Luciano Benetton). It is a unique selection, compiled by guest curators Camille Morineau and Lucia Pesapane, with works by more than 100 artists, including Matisse, Rodin, Picasso, Thomas Schütte and Ai Weiwei. It is the first exhibition to focus on the relationship between art and ceramics from the early 20th century to the present.
Through more than 200 artworks, Ceramix tells the story of ceramic art from the beginning of last century to the present, with a strong focus on the post-war production of artistic ceramics and the contemporary art of Europe, North America and Asia. The artists selected have used the material in a variety of ways: from paintings and sculptures to installations in mixed techniques. The exhibition is presented both chronologically and thematically, and also includes a number of monograph rooms that have been arranged in close cooperation with the artists in question, who include Johan Creten and Klara Kristalova.
The guest curators Camille Morineau and Lucia Pesapane have previously worked together on exhibitions about Gerhard Richter, Roy Lichtenstein, Niki de Saint Phalle and elles@centrepompidou.
