What you'll learn in this pottery class:

Ghada Amer was born in Cairo in 1963 and raised in France where she studied at Villa Arson, Nice. 

 She currently lives and works in New York. Her wide-ranging practice spans painting, sculpture, works on paper, and garden and mixed-media installations. Over the course of her multi-decade career, Amer has created an aesthetic and conceptual language that confronts the systemic subjugation of the female voice and body. 

While Amer became well-known for her embroidered paintings in the early 1990s, her ceramic practice has increasingly come to the forefront. Dallas Contemporary exhibited a solo presentation of her ceramics in 2018, curated by Justine Ludwig; and Marianne Boesky Gallery presented a suite of her ceramics at Independent Art Fair here in New York in 2020. 

The Museum of Art at RISD recently acquired a ceramic wall-hanging plate. Distanz published a catalogue on her ceramics in 2018, complete with multiple essays and interviews.

With ceramics, Amer feels freed from the masculine constraints of the medium of painting. She’ll discuss both this and her learned technical skills at 92Y, and open a dialogue for pushing the medium both conceptually and technically.
