MILWAUKEE.- In conjunction with the Milwaukee Art Museum exhibition Eva Zeisel: The Playful Search for Beauty, Eva Zeisel will visit the Museum for a film screening and conversation Sunday, November 7 at 2 p.m. The film Throwing Curves documents the life of this 97-year-old artist known for her softly curving, intimate ceramics. After the film and conversation with Zeisel, the artist will be available to sign copies of the exhibition catalog and some of her products available in the Museum Store.
Designer Eva Zeisel has had a long and fascinating life. Born in Budapest in 1906, Zeisel studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts but decided early on to become a potter. After working in Hungary and then as a designer in Germany, she moved to the Soviet Union in 1932 and began working in the ceramic industry there, against a backdrop of turbulent political change. In 1936, Zeisel was arrested in a Stalinist purge and imprisoned for 16 months, spending most of the time in solitary confinement.
After her release, Zeisel moved to Vienna but was soon forced to flee the Nazis, and finally came to America. Here she created the work for which she is famed today: ceramics that marry the Surrealist style of “biomorphism” with the clean modernism of the best mid-century design. This exhibition offers a rare opportunity to see many of her early designs and some of her latest, many of which will be exhibited to the public for the first time.
