Out of stock


Email us to join the waitlist to visit Two Temple Place for a private view of Body Vessel Clay: Black Women, Ceramics & Contemporary Art with an introduction by Rebecca Hone, Head of Exhibitions.

We will be partnering with Young Professionals in the Arts (YPA), so this is an opportunity to meet others interested in and working in the arts.The exhibition will showcase the ceramic medium through artworks by three generations of Black women artists working in clay.

Body Vessel Clay spans 70 years of ceramics beginning with the seminal Nigerian potter, Ladi Kwali, and examining her interaction with 1950s British Studio Pottery. Through Kwali and her female contemporaries, this new perspective on one of the world’s oldest artforms will reinterpret the line of Kwali’s influence and its resonance on a younger generation of contemporary women artists including Phoebe Collings-James, Shawanda Corbett and Jade Montserrat.

The exhibition is curated by independent curator, researcher and writer Dr Jareh Das.

Our visit will include wine.

Please wear a face covering unless you are exempt.

Cost:  Patrons and one guest £10 each; Friends £20.
