British Ceramics Biennial

Stoke-On-Trent

NOW CLOSED

This international ceramics festival will bring together 100 artists in a programme of exhibitions, installations, new commissions and hands-on activities taking place across Stoke-on-Trent, the undisputed home of British ceramics. Exhibition highlights at Spode include ‘Place and Practice’ a series of site-specific installations, created by Stoke-on-Trent born artist Neil Brownsword in collaboration with Korean artists Juree Kim and Oh Hyangjong. Other highlights include ‘Heart:Beat’ at the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery and Bethesda Chapel, a cross-disciplinary installation created following an exchange project with the UK and India that responds to themes of material, place and tradition; an exhibition celebrating the anniversaries of Armitage Shanks and Duchamp’s controversial Fountain 17, at Gladstone Pottery Museum; and Fount, an installation at AirSpace Gallery exploring the role of the ubiquitous public fountain, which Stoke-on-Trent manufactured and exported globally. Find out more about the British Ceramics Biennial from their website.
