HOUSTON, Texas — Cfile Foundation Founder and Editor in Chief Garth Clark premiere’s his final speaking tour WITNESS: Garth Clark’s Journey through The Ceramic Art Revolution, a riveting multi-media presentation, in Houston July 22, 2017.
Garth Clark remains the most influential and provocative voice in international ceramics after five decades in the field; feared, loved, derided and celebrated. Clark is not an ivory tower theorist, but has had his boots on the ground for half a century, with a particular knack of being physically present and often the key protagonist in some of the key revolutionary moments for ceramics since 1970.
Garth Clark exercises wide-ranging erudition and profound sophistication with a common touch…he is a welcoming voice—never condescending and “educational” but confident of the reader’s appetite for grown up complexities that are explored with clarity and feeling. —Peter Schjeldahl, art critic The New Yorker.
Known for his wit, deep scholarship and entertaining speaking style, Garth Clark’s WITNESS melds own biography with the ceramics field history in the USA. Stylistically it is more like a one-person stage show than a conventional lecture, no podium, no reading from a script, with video snippets and a multimedia presentation.
