More Than That by Guest Curator Roberto Lugo @ Flaten Museum

  • Flaten Art Museum 1520 Saint Olaf Avenue Northfield, MN, 55057 United States (map)

Guest curator Roberto Lugo knows the frustration of being artistically pigeonholed by the color of his skin. More Than That: Diversity within Diversity brings together artists of color working in a multiplicity of genres and forms that defy cultural expectations frequently imposed upon artists of color. Lugo explains, “the artists invited not only represent artists of color currently working in ceramics, but the diversity of discourse taking place within our communities.” Presented currently with the 53rd annual NCECA conference in Minneapolis, Minn., this exhibition embodies Claytopia’s conception of a “restless yearning for a more livable, just and meaningful world.” Exhibiting artists include Paul Briggs, Syd Carpenter, Morel Doucet, Ezenwa, Courtney Leonard, Roberto Lugo, Malcolm Mobutu Smith, Sana Musasama, Autumn Wallace, and Diego Valles. Creating socially engaged work, these artists push the field of ceramics to participate with the communities in which artists find themselves.
