CALL FOR PROPOSALS
adj: clearly revealed to the mind or the senses
v: to appear or make apparent
n: a list of contents of goods in transit – from Latin manifestare
‘to discover, disclose’ or manifestus ‘caught in the act’.
At a time when there is a great resurgence of interest in Australian ceramics, the diversity
of practice is stretching traditional interpretations of what it is to be a maker.
To paraphrase the great Mexican writer Octavio Paz, contemporary Australian ceramics
does indeed transgress ‘the cult of utility and the religion of art’ and it is in the breadth
and ambition of its cultural and aesthetic reach that ceramics is finding new audiences
and a new way forward.
The Australian Ceramics Association Members Exhibition in Hobart will present
an overview of practice that showcases diversity and creates a space for dialogue.
Makers working across all styles are invited to submit proposals for MANIFEST.
Proposals should include a one-page CV (word doc or PDF), an outline of intended work
(no more than 200 words; word doc or PDF) and six images (jpgs) of recent work.
