An exhibition celebrating the achievements of one of the most influential and iconic figures in the Australian craft movement. Janet DeBoos: A Survey reflects the wide reach of DeBoos' aesthetic, intellectual and technical influences from the 1960s to 2015. Her life's work as a ceramic artist and educator has been instrumental in placing Australian ceramics on the world map. This exhibition presents selected pieces from her 50 year career as a maker, in one gallery sho, for the first time.
Peter Haynes has over 35 years' experience in curating, academia, writing and arts administration and is an acclaimed curator and commentator on Australian ceramics'. His essay in the publication that will accompany the exhibition is the first major survey of her career. Read Peter's essay.
