Hot Mud: A National Survey of Contemporary Canadian Emerging Ceramists

In
celebration of its 35th anniversary, the Burlington Art Centre (BAC)
present a national juried exhibition of contemporary Canadian ceramics
by emerging artists. The BAC is uniquely positioned to host this
exhibition as it houses the country’s largest, permanent collection of
contemporary Canadian ceramics.

A jury of senior curators and
artists selected the participants in five regions across Canada – the
Atlantic Provinces, Québec, Ontario, the Prairies and the Territories,
and British Columbia. The jurors have a long view of history and a
vision of our future. They are Gloria Hickey (Atlantic Provinces), Alan
Elder (Quebec), Rachel Gotlieb (Ontario), Greg Payce (Prairies & the
Territories) and Sally Michener (British Columbia)

The
selected artists are: Eliza Au and Tanya Doody, British Columbia; E. M.
Alysse Bowd and Robin Lambert, Alberta; Robin DuPont, Manitoba; Carole
Epp Saskatchewan; Zimra Beiner, Magdalene Dykstra, Janet MacPherson,
Mary McKenzie, Lindsay Montgomery, and Denise Smith, Ontario; Marianne
Chenard, and Amelie Proulx, Québec; Maaike Charron,Newfoundland and
Maja Padrov, New Brunswick.

The symposium Saturday September 7 from 10 AM to 3 PM

As
an educational component, we will hold a one-day symposium on Saturday
September 7. Each juror will contextualise their regional choices within
a national and international discourse. It will be followed by a round
table discussion with selected artists moderated by Jonathan Smith,
Curator of the Collection, Burlington Art Centre.

Both the exhibition and the conference are open to the general public, free of charge.

For the conference reserve your seat with Gillian Goobie at goobieg@thebac.ca or by telephone at 905-632-7796 ext:326
