Jeffrey Deitch Will Exhibit a New Group Show Reinvigorating the Traditional Medium of Clay

On view from September 10 to October 30.

Jeffrey Deitch gallery will unveil a new group exhibition that highlights the many ways contemporary artists are using the traditional medium of clay. Curated by Alia Williams, “Clay Pop” explores issues pertaining to race, identity, and gender through art that is both visually familiar, yet entirely original.

The exhibition is a unique display that connects disparate histories and motifs ranging the visual resonance of Disney animation and funk art from the 1970s, to various symbolic iconography from African, Asian, and Middle Eastern art.

“Clay Pop” is also unique in the sense that many of the artists on display know one another and share kilns and studios in Los Angeles — forming a unique narrative around this burgeoning spin on clay sculpture. “Artists are taking a traditional medium and turning it on its head,” said Williams.

“Clay Pop” will view at New York’s Jeffrey Deitch gallery from September 10 to October 30.

In other art news, a Jasper Johns joint retrospective is hitting the Whitney Museum and Philadelphia Museum of Art.
