This event has ended.

Sterling Ruby: Ceramics is the first museum exhibition to focus on the ceramic works of the Los Angeles –based artist Sterling Ruby. Process and materiality are paramount to Ruby’s practice. He rolls, punches, assembles, and manipulates clay by hand and machine to arrive at basins or vessel-like containers, which often hold the debris of previous kiln misfires. Like a reverse archaeologist, he records the results of his experiments in clay within the final art object.

Sterling Ruby: Ceramics will be on view at the Des Moines Art Center, Iowa, through September 9, 2018. The Museum of Arts and Design is its second venue. The exhibition is accompanied by a full-color catalogue. Its showing at MAD marks Ruby’s first museum exhibition in New York.

Sterling Ruby: Ceramics is curated by Jeff Fleming, Director of the Des Moines Art Center. It was organized for the Museum of Arts and Design by William and Mildred Lasdon Chief Curator Shannon R. Stratton with support from Assistant Manager of Curatorial Affairs Angelik Vizcarrondo-Laboy.
