Presented By Ceramics Program

The “New Voices Lectures” are an on-going series highlighting some of the most talented emerging artists utilizing the ceramic medium in the field of contemporary art.

Ceramic sculptor Jeannine Marchand stops in on her journey from North Carolina to deliver work to the Fuller Museum for the exhibition “Continuum of Innovation: Haystack Clay Selects." Marchand’s graceful, folded clay sculptures have been shown internationally and the following reflects her thoughtful approach to making:

“Departing from curiosity, I aspire to heighten awareness of everyday sensorial experiences, highlighting what incited a question or reaction.

It is curiosity, which invites me to explore memory and emotions, finding a sensual language in the lights and shadows of malleable, white clay.”

This event is free to the public. RSVP to Kathy King at kking@fas.harvard.edu. Space is limited.
