Visiting Artist Workshop with Shozo Michikawa

1:00pm to 5:30pm

Location: 

Ceramics Program, 224 Western Avenue, Allston, MA 02134

Presented by: Ceramics Program - Office for the Arts at HarvardShozo 1

Workshop Description

Join us in welcoming Michikawa to Boston for his solo exhibition with Lacoste Gallery. Michikawa has exhibited extensively in Japan and around the world, including London, Berlin and New York, the Philippines, Mongolia, France and China. The artist will provide a half-day demonstration of his art making process beginning at 1:00pm. The day will conclude with a slide lecture of his work at 5:00pm. Michikawa is hugely inspired by the power and energy of nature in its every form. It is his belief that nature would ultimately triumph over science and civilizations. The beauty that nature offers such as seen in the formation of rocks, mountains, deserts and the seas are unparalleled and conversely natural disasters brought on by tsunamis, earthquakes and erupting volcanoes cannot be underestimated.

Presented by: Ceramics Program - Office for the Arts at Harvard Darcy Badiali

Join us for a one-day workshop and demonstration by California-based artist Darcy Badiali while in Boston exhibiting with Lacoste Gallery in Concord, MA. Badiali will demonstrate his process for throwing large-scale forms on the wheel and provide a slide lecture on his work. Badiali makes works that are inspired by nature such as evident in his large white vessels which resemble egg shells. He is inspired by his environment but also intertwined with the materials at hand and at the wheel. There will be a pot-luck lunch during the workshop.

This event is free to registered Ceramics Program students, Harvard Undergraduate and Graduate students. For all others, $25.00 registration fee. To register, email Kathy King, Director of Education at kking@fas.harvard.edu or fill in the form here and send in (even if you don't need to pay so that we can hold your spot!)
