A year ago the Museum of Arts and Design in New York opened an exhibition titled "Body & Soul: New International Ceramics" (exhibition duration from September 24, 2013 to March 2, 2014) and examined the latest ceramic art trends through the eyes and hands of 24 young artists around the world. The body has always been a powerful tool for artists to express strong emotions and to address social and cultural issues. "Body & Soul: New International Ceramics" continues this artistic tradition; moreover, gun violence, bullying, rebellion, sexual abuse, anxiety, and identity. Many of these artists, who exhibit for the first time in New York, came to choose clay as material not only as ceramists but also as painters, draftsmen, or sculptors. Adopting the medium of clay, they create powerful, engaging, and provocative work each inspired by his or her own experience as a participant or observer of contemporary society and culture.
