Design Aloud | Jun Kaneko: Inside the Dango
Sunday, March 28 | 2-3PM | Online
Since his arrival in the United States in 1963, artist Jun Kaneko has had an indelible impact on the field of contemporary ceramics. Starting in the late 1970s, Kaneko liberated his work from the pedestal by developing his signature form, the dango – named for a Japanese term for dumpling.
Garth Johnson, the the Paul Phillips and Sharon Sullivan Curator of Ceramics at the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, New York, will talk about the evolution of Kaneko’s work and highlight many of his technical and artistic achievements during this virtual conversation as part of our Design Aloud series.
The Everson was one of the first museums to acquire Kaneko’s work in 1966 and is currently featuring him in an exhibition entitled The Floating Bridge: Postmodern and Contemporary Japanese Ceramics.
$15 non-members / $10 members
Only one ticket per Zoom connection.
This program is presented in association with the exhibition The Space Between: Frank Lloyd Wright | Jun Kaneko. We encourage you to visit the grounds to experience Kaneko's dangos prior to the event.
DESIGN ALOUD is a series of conversations, screenings, and performances exploring the power of contemporary design in harmony with nature.
