SIXTY: The Journal of Australian Ceramics 60th Anniversary 1962–2022
is a new ADC On Tour national touring exhibition presented in partnership by Australian Design Centre with The Australian Ceramics Association.
Curated by Guest Curator Anna Grigson with ADC CEO and Artistic Director Lisa Cahill and the team, this celebratory exhibition will travel to fifteen venues across Australia.
The Journal of Australian Ceramics (JAC) has, over its sixty years of print publication, presented the history of ceramics in Australia. It has acknowledged the achievements of so many in that time, as well as educating readers on the importance and position of ceramics within Australian art. The JAC has been at the forefront of addressing significant issues of the time and, in turn, is a dynamic source of contemporary history. We find ourselves at a fundamental time in contemporary ceramics. The significant interest in ceramic art is recognition of the accomplishments of Australia’s ceramic artists and potters and The JAC and its contributors have played a key role in this revival.
Artists included in the exhibition are: Glenn Barkley | Kirsten Coelho | Greg Daly | Pippin Drysdale | Dan Elborne | Penny Evans | Honor Freeman | Susan Frost | Shannon Garson | Patsy Hely | Alison Milyika Carroll | Jeffrey Mincham | Damon Moon | David Ray | Ben Richardson | Tania Rollond | Owen Rye | Jane Sawyer | Yul Scarf | Vipoo Srivilasa | Kenji Uranishi | Gerry Wedd.
