Different Things: Including Clay with Sheila Pepe

An OnDemand Online Lecture

Oct 19, 2016

What is the difference between clay and ceramics, art and craft — what about design? Does is matter? Do makers care about semantics? Pepe does.

Inspired by her love of hand-making and the writing of late Wittgenstein, the artist will discuss her life and work as a boundary dweller and crosser. Using examples of her own work in cultural contexts of making and reception, Pepe invites a discussion in response to her argument for the meaning and power of self-directed differences.

Sheila Pepe

Sheila Pepe is best known for her large-scale, ephemeral installations and sculpture made from domestic and industrial materials.
