> DESCRIPTION

The latest installment of SFMOMA's ongoing New Work series highlights the reinvigorated medium of ceramics in recent art practice. Through small, imperfectly finished figurative sculptures, both Brazil-based Carneiro da Cunha and Sweden-based Kristalova invoke the connection of ceramics to children's crafts with works that recall characters from fairy tales or comic books and formally have the feel of a child's project. Yet, in each instance, humor and delight give way to troubling visions that subvert innocence and raise unsettling questions.

The New Workseries is organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and is generously supported by Collectors Forum, the founding patron of the series. Major funding is also provided by the Mimi and Peter Haas Fund, The Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation, and Robin Wright and Ian Reeves.
