DESCRIPTION

NEW YORK - RH Gallery is pleased to present Pure Clay: Young Sook Park and Lee Ufan and Contemporary Clay, a group exhibition of sculptures in clay with Kathy Butterly, Nicole Cherubini, Julia Chiang, Naoki Koide, Jeff Koons, Klara Kristalova, Erin McCutcheon, John O’Reilly, Joyce Robins, Arlene Shechet, Shinique Smith, Paul Swenbeck and Ai Wei Wei.

RH Gallery presents Contemporary Clay, a group exhibition presenting a selection of recent sculpture by a diverse group of contemporary artists. Clay seems to inherently contain a certain presence that is both fragile and powerful. Within this tension, there lays a rich history spanning time and the world. Ceramic traditions lie at the core of multiple cultural histories. Clay’s malleability and sensitivity to touch further defines its identity yet each artist in this exhibition uses clay in a uniquely expressive way.
