Inspired by recent travels to China, Leslie Ferrin of Ferrin Contemporary presents "Made in China: The New Export Ware", part of an on-going series of public programs featuring international contemporary ceramic artists re-contextualizing traditional Chinese export porcelain production methods and visual vocabulary independently or in conjunction with skilled Chinese artisans.

Sponsored as a guest lecturer by the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, Ferrin traveled to China in June and July 2014 with the aim of gaining a greater understanding of the cross-cultural collaboration, production, and appropriation occurring in the New Export Ware movement.

For a full listing of Made in China events, exhibitions, and artists, please visit Ferrin Contemporary with additional dates added periodically.

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