Upcoming Zoom Talks: Fall 2022
Thursday, September 15, 2022 at 5pm ET
ZOOM Gallery Talk about Ogawa Machiko
And her latest exhibition at Joan B Mirviss LTD
Acclaimed clay artist Ogawa Machiko can be called a true master of her medium. Her long, illustrious career is characterized by bold sculptural forms that recall archaeological finds, excavated minerals, and volcanic remains. In her latest body of work, Ogawa explores the concept of a vessel (utsuwa) in a deep red color inspired by the red earth of Burkina Faso, West Africa.
To mark her fourth exhibition at Joan B Mirviss LTD and opening for Asia Week New York, our expert panelists will discuss Ogawa Machiko's groundbreaking career and her trailblazing path to achieving critical success within Japan and internationally. They will examine her enduring legacy in the field of Japanese contemporary ceramics and the possibilities she has uncovered in her lifetime exploration of clay.
