Why was CFile founded? Radical changes in art and design and a breakdown of the status quo have left contemporary ceramics confused, in crisis, and under-informed.
The field’s resources are limited, yet catching up demands a constant information hotline as well as real innovation of education, studio practices, markets, and scholarship to achieve a prominent new role in mainstream visual art, design and architecture.
CFile is a global community of cutting-edge educators, ceramics creatives, critics, curators, collectors, dealers, and brilliant young techies. Our online campus distributes free groundbreaking lectures, classroom material, edgy videos, recent exhibition catalogs, monographs, textbooks—and soon, Critical, a scholarly journal.
CFile Daily, a news and review journal edited by Garth Clark, receives over 720,000 visits a year (and growing) from readers in 189 countries. Only two years old, it’s already the most influential champion for avant-garde ceramics.
CFile Foundation is nonprofit, tax-exempt, a success—but still a startup, depending on our advertisers, donors, and, yes, readers like you. Join us, subscribe, or make a gift. (If you’d like to donate now, $5.95 will buy us coffee.)
