VOICES: Contemporary Ceramic Art from Sweden

Not to be confused with Museum’s Voices from the Warehouse District exhibition, this traveling exhibition presented the current trends in Swedish ceramics. The ten working artists featured in Voices were the leading exponents of the dynamism and originality of contemporary ceramic art in Sweden. Viewed together, they enabled us to discern uniqueness in the contemporary development of Swedish ceramics. The artists, chosen by curator Inger Molin, were selected from different generations. They work in varying styles and are free in their relationship to traditional ceramic art to seek new directions and emphasize freedom of expression.
The artists used a wide array of media including clay, glass, rope, glaze, and metal. However, no longer is it the material that is of utmost importance, but instead the point of view of the ceramic artist. The artists work sculpturally and conceptually, addressing existential issues with humor or abstraction.

Inger Molin, has owned and operated Galleri IngerMolin, located in the √Ėstermalm district in Stockholm since 1998.
