The study day will feature a keynote address from independent crafts expert and writer Tanya Harrod. Delegates will also hear from the three original curators of the exhibition: Simon Olding (Director of the Crafts Study Centre, Farnham) and Martina Droth (Deputy Director of Research, Exhibitions and Publications, and Curator of Sculpture at YCBA) who will speak about the origins of the exhibition and its display at YCBA, where the exhibition was first shown, and Glenn Adamson (Senior Research Scholar at YCBA) who will analyse the differences in the reception of the exhibition in the UK and USA, and discuss the future of British studio pottery. Helen Ritchie, in-house curator of the exhibition at the Fitzwilliam, will speak about decisions made regarding the design of the exhibition at the Fitzwilliam, and artists included in the exhibition, Alison Britton and Halima Cassell will be ‘in conversation’. Delegates will also have a final chance to visit the exhibition when the Museum is closed to the wider public.
