Lecture with Dale Fisher Food for Thought: Inedible Aesthetics
UIMA@IMU Visual Classroom, IMU
Join the UIMA for UI’s campus-wide 2014-2015 thematic programming, Food for Thought. Have an up close and personal look at functional ceramics from the UIMA permanent and School Programs collections, as well as UIMA Curator of Education Dale Fisher’s own collection of works by other artists. Fisher will discuss the delineations between the artwork of ceramic artists and the functional craft of “potters,” and examine how function determines form and how form may hinder or undermine function. He will also cover some related and very general history and tradition, and enlighten his listeners about terminology, hand-building, wheel-throwing and the firing processes. This event is free and open to the public.
