June 9 – 19, 2022 / Gardiner Museum
The International Ceramic Art Fair (ICAF) makes its highly anticipated return to the Gardiner Museum. View and purchase works from an outstanding roster of Canadian and international artists and galleries, and join us for talks, tours, performances, and more.
ICAF 2022 celebrates connections between body, identity, and land. Global mythologies have long connected the human body to the earth, from a Nubian deity fashioning humans from clay to scientific explorations of clay as the first carrier of life. The human body is symbolically if not literally connected to clay, helping us understand who we are as individuals, a society, and a species.
Figurative ceramic sculpture is one of the most dynamic areas of practice today. Artists from across the spectrum are exploring new approaches, representations, and voices to help us see ourselves in ways that generate compassion, empathy, truth telling, and beauty.
