Spinning Plates: how ceramic artists are shaking up the dining table
About Spinning Plates
With eating together being more meaningful than ever, the humble plate is heaped with new significance. In this talk – which marks the launch of Crafts Magazine’s September/October 2021 issue – we meet artists who are transforming the dish, creating everything from one-off works for top chefs, to artworks that explore the politics of the plate and reinvent post-Covid dining.
Join Crafts Magazine to hear from speakers including the Los Angeles-based ceramic artist Adam Silverman, who harnesses the power of tableware to heal social and political divides; Martin Kullik, co-founder of Steinbeisser, an experimental gastronomy company that unites chefs and artists; and New York-based artist Jacqueline Bishop who has reimagined the troubling colonial narratives often depicted on plates from the past for an exhibition at the British Ceramics Biennal this autumn. The talk will be chaired by Clare Wood, the artistic director of the BCB.
