The Changing World: Asian Century

Dr Kevin Murray

Venue: Manning Clarke Theatre 1, Australian National University (ANU), Canberra ACT 2600


Thursday, 9 July 2015 11:25 am – 11:35 am

Australian ceramics in the Asian century - turning competition into partnership

Dr Kevin Murray will ask the question whether the current practice of 'un-making' involving the destruction of ceramics has different meanings in the East and West. In Europe, the found object approach to ceramics is associated with the post-industrial condition, while in Asia it appears to have a more spiritual meaning.
