RMIT School of Art is pleased to present a lecture by UK Ceramicist Alison Britton.

Alison Britton was part of a radical group of Royal College of Art graduates in London in the early 1970s, whose work became known as ‘The New Ceramics’, or seen to be postmodern. She has made pots in three London studios for over 40 years. Her work has been widely exhibited and is in many private and public collections internationally. She also writes and curates and was a part time tutor at RCA until 2018. Her retrospective exhibition Content and Form was shown at the V&A museum in 2016. A collection of her writing, mainly for magazines and catalogues, was republished in her book Seeing Things by Occasional Papers, 2013. She has been represented by Marsden Woo Gallery, London, since 1998.

Please register for this event as seating is limited via Eventbrite

Alison Britton’s work is part of the exhibition, An Idea Needing to Be Made: Contemporary Ceramics, at Heide Museum of Modern Art.
