Ceramics in the Expanded Field brings together a group of eight artists who are changing the way we think of clay. Their ambitious works integrate ceramics—a medium long siloed and marginalized—with disciplines ranging from photography and video to painting and performance. While they push ceramics beyond its traditional functional forms, these artists simultaneously connect their work to the complex material and social histories of pottery as well as to other crafts and modes of making that lie outside usual fine art definitions, including basket weaving, furniture design, the building trades, and lowrider culture.

Ceramics in the Expanded Field features work by Nicole Cherubini, Armando Guadalupe Cortés, Francesca DiMattio, Jessica Jackson Hutchins, Kahlil Robert Irving, Anina Major, Rose B. Simpson, and Linda Sormin.
