Clay Stories is a significant survey exhibition of contemporary artworks in ceramics created by established and emerging Indigenous artists in remote parts of regional Australia. The exhibition presents pieces that are both sculptural and vessel-based, with each body of work a strong medium for storytelling, representative of the artist’s connection to Country. This touring exhibition is an independent curatorial project developed by Sabbia Gallery, its exhibition curator Anna Grigson, five Indigenous art centres and the Remote Communities Ceramic Network. CLAY STORIES: Contemporary Indigenous Ceramics from Remote Australia Ceramics is a Sabbia Gallery and Remote Communities Ceramic Network (RCCN) touring exhibition.
