WILMINGTON, DE.- The Delaware Art Museum
presents Modern Morphism: Contemporary Ceramic Sculpture, on view August 7, 2010 October 3, 2010. Part of the Museums Outlooks Exhibition Series, this exhibition encourages viewers to explore the interconnectedness of art and nature. Clay was sculpted into forms based in nature, and then further transformed by the artists imagination into something unreal. The works can be organized into the following groups: anthropomorphism (imbuing the form of an animal or inanimate object with human features or behaviors), biomorphism (having a nonrepresentational form or pattern that resembles a living organism), and rhizomorphism (comprising a root-like structure). This exhibition includes 18 works by 13 artists drawn primarily from the region. The guest curator is Jacqueline Jrolf.
Modern Morphism: Contemporary Ceramic Sculpture is part of the Delaware Art Museums Outlooks Exhibition Series, which encourages community involvement in the creation of exhibitions that will be hosted by the Museum. The Delaware Art Museum accepts proposals for Outlooks exhibitions from organizations, community groups, and residents of our surrounding area, contributing to the Museums mission of providing an inclusive and essential community resource. All Outlooks exhibitions are displayed in the Ammon Galleries on the Museums second floor.
