> The NCECA Invitational is a themed, curated exhibition that features leading edge, large-scale and often challenging art incorporating clay as its primary material. Held in even-numbered years, NCECA’s Exhibitions Director collaborates with the host venue curator to develop an exhibition concept and select a foundational group of artists’ works by invitation. Augmenting this core selection, additional artists may respond to an open call for digital representation of ceramic works that support the theme. This format brings established reputations and emerging talent to bear on the selected theme and adds vitality and fresh perspectives to ongoing discourse in contemporary art. The exhibition is co-curated by NCECA Exhibitions Director Leigh Taylor Mickelson and Catherine Futter, the Helen Jane and R. Hugh “Pat” Uhlmann Senior Curator of Architecture, Design and Decorative Arts at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
