"Richard Slee: Work and Play" travelling to Tramway, Glasgow

January 23, 2016

Hales Gallery is pleased to announce that Work and Play, a major touring exhibition of works by Richard Slee organised by Tullie House in partnership with Hales Gallery, is travelling to Tramway in Glasgow.

 

Tramway is an international art-space which commissions, produces and presents contemporary arts projects. Their vision is to inspire and add to our understanding of today's world by connecting audiences and artists. Richard Slee (born Carlisle, 1946) has built a reputation as one of Britain’s most important contemporary ceramic artist. His work challenges conventional notions of ceramic art and demonstrates the fluid boundaries of 21st century ceramic practice. This exhibition covers Slee’s most radical work to date produced over the last 10 years.

 

Exploring new materials, processes and subject matter, his latest body of work is inspired by domestic forms of production and recreation. Work and Play reimagines the world of commonplace tools, sports equipment and everyday objects, featuring a series of unique ceramic works which flawlessly integrate sourced materials and readymades.
