An Idea Needing to Be Made is centred around the concept of the vessel and its continued use and reinvention by contemporary artists working with clay. It draws together the work of twelve Australian and international artists from different generations who touch on a range of ideas about this most democratic of forms, and who gesture towards some of its possible futures.
The exhibition takes as its starting point the practice of the late Australian artist Gwyn Hanssen Pigott, whose interest in and interrogation of the vessel ushered in new ways of thinking about function, purpose and display.
Artists include: Alison Britton, Kathy Butterly, Kirsten Coelho, Pippin Drysdale, Ernebella Arts, Simone Fraser, Gwyn Hanssen Pigott, Nicolette Johnson, King Houndekpinkou, Kang Hyo Lee and Laurie Steer.
