A tripartite exhibition across the gallery’s three locations, “Mess” highlights the unabashed creativity that has underpinned the recent vanguard of ceramic artists. The landmark show unites unconventional works by 32 international artists, including the likes of Ben Medansky, Kristin Victoria Barron, and newcomer Magnus Maxine, each defined by rule-breaking approaches to clay and playful experimentation. “I think of ceramics as a gateway drug—it opens people’s minds toward collecting and investing,” says gallery director Laura Young, who co-curated the show with London-based author Tom Morris. “We cast a wide net and diversified our artist pool, which always brings an exhilaration to the gallery, this dynamic conversation about relationships old and new.”
