- Location: Binns Merrill Hall 106/ Room C

The Division of Ceramic Art and the Alfred Clay Collective are pleased to welcome Claydies, the design partnership of Karen Kjældgärd-Larsen and Tine Broksø. Both Karen and Tine graduated from the Danish Design School in 2000.

"Tine throws a lump of clay and Karen catches it. Karen throws it back to Tine but it falls to the ground. We try with a new lump. This time Tine catches it and starts shaping it. It is a ping pong process, in which we are always hunting good ideas. Sometimes we wear our bowls on a catwalk. Sometimes we are inspired by horrors and murder our pots. And sometimes we set up dogma-rules and work blindfolded. We strive always to renew ourselves and make ceramic design that matters. That is to have fun and give fun..."

’Present Perfect: Alicia Eggert, Solo Exhibition’

- Location: Cohen Center
(12:00 PM - 2:00 PM)
Date: Sept. 10 - Oct. 11
Location: Cohen Center
Open Reception: Friday, Sept. 13
Time: 5-7 p.m.

In Present Perfect, Alicia Eggert presents a body of work that serves as an ongoing investigation of time. Works including drawing, photography, neon, and kinetic sculpture, juxtapose cyclical, linear, finite, and infinite representations of time.

One kinetic sculpture repeatedly creates and destroys the word NOW, but just like time itself, it never quite comes to a complete stop. Another sculpture has been programmed to have a human lifespan, and to "die" after 78 years. A photograph of a man looking at his watch captures a dying gesture, and a 12-foot-long drawing measures time in feet and inches.

If time is a construct, Present Perfect seeks to figure out how, exactly, it’s constructed. To view more work of Alicia’s visit:

Linda Weintraub is a curator, educator, artist, and author of several popular books about contemporary art. She has earned her reputation by making the outposts of vanguard art accessible to broad audiences.
