Emerita Professor Christie Brown is currently exhibiting ceramics and drawing in Galeri Nev, a major Turkish gallery in Ankara, alongside the legendary Turkish artist Candeger Furtun. This two-person exhibition illustrates the strong connection between the practices of these two clay artists both thematically and technically. They first met during the two-day seminar in 2019 co-organised by the Ceramics Research Centre- UK and Mesher art space in Istanbul. The seminar featured Turkish ceramic artists, an archaeologist, puppet maker, historian and curators in a Clay Across Cultures conversation. The context for the seminar was the exhibition, Beyond the Vessel, supported by the Koc Foundation and Messums.org. which featured 14 European artists currently working in clay including both Brown and CRC-UK researcher Phoebe Cummings. Furtun followed this by a major retrospective at the newly opened Arter gallery in Istanbul in 2021. Professor Brown is honoured to have been invited to revisit this culturally rich context and exhibit alongside Candeger Furtun. Conversations across cultures through art demonstrates the powerful language of the ceramic material as a global connector.
