Gillian Lowndes: At the Edge

23 November to 11 April 2021
York Art Gallery

See the ground-breaking works of Gillian Lowndes (1936-2010), the most radical ceramicist of the twentieth century, in the new exhibition Gillian Lowndes: On the Edge, showcased in the Centre of Ceramic Arts (CoCA) at York Art Gallery.
From the 1970s onwards, artist Gillian Lowndes was at the forefront of a new style of contemporary ceramics which explored the materiality of clay. Her abstract expressionist way of working brought together a range of materials and found objects which she recycled to create new sculptural work she called collages. This exhibition showcases over 40 artworks drawn from CoCA’s collection alongside loans from Anthony Shaw’s – many of which have never been on public display.
