FUSION: The Ontario Clay and Glass Association and The Benyamini Contemporary Ceramics Center in collaboration with HIT - Holon Institute of Technology are pleased to present an evening of Contemporary Israeli Ceramics with six Israeli artists, who are the founders of the Center, and are currently in Toronto on a travel and research grant. http://www.benyaminiceramics.org/en/ 

Please join us for this engaging event with six artists who use the medium of clay to express thought provoking concepts, incorporate innovative ideas and take advantage of the latest technological inventions in the field of ceramic art and beyond.

The Lecture – Presented by Shlomit Bauman, Chief Curator of the Center. Accompanied by an image presentation, Shlomit will focus on Studio Ceramics in the 21st Century: definitions, trends and challenges; stretching, expanding and extending the boundaries of clay.

The Presentations – Five artists will present their work:

o           Marcelle Klein – From vision to reality – The Benyamini Contemporary Ceramics Center

o           Ravit Lazer – Routes of Destruction – a recent exhibition showcasing a body of work relating to life affected and afflicted by geopolitical conflicts

o           Yael Novak – Creating objects which comment on the contemporary culture of mass consumerism and on life in the absence of boundaries

o           Shira Silverston – Combining her interest in the way fragments join to form many variations of a whole, with an interest in domesticity and the trials and tribulations of a young artist

o           Shlomit Bauman – Ran Out – a solo exhibition: focusing on the depletion and exploitation of natural, cultural and individual resources

·       The Video – A fascinating video of the artist Ester Beck working with her entire body to create a vessel with six tonnes of clay. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_uQS_C6WHqrVi1IZHN6YVd0NnM/view
