Curator's Tour - The Precious Clay

11am & 2pm

Museum of Royal Worcester

Enjoy a tour of contemporary art exhibition The Precious Clay: porcelain in contemporary art with Curator and Director of Meadow Arts, Anne de Charmant.

The Precious Clay is an ambitious exhibition exploring porcelain and the Museum of Royal Worcester’s historic collections through contemporary art. The artists in the show range from the world-renowned to those at the beginning of their art careers; their works respond to porcelain’s rich history as a medium and the social implications of its production, through sculpture, painting, installations, found objects and film.

Anne de Charmant is the founder and Director of Meadow Arts, a contemporary visual arts organisation which is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation (NPO). She developed the concept of the new organisation from her interest in the concepts of place and culture, the environment and the contemporary.

This event is part of the international #GlobalDayOfClay.
