The Very Mirror of Life: Ceramics at the Everson 1968-2018
On View September 8 - December 30
I.M. Pei believed that “Architecture is the very mirror of life.” By this, he meant that a society’s architecture reflects its history, spirit, and values. With roots in function and culture, the same can also be said of ceramics. This exhibition uses work from the permanent collection to explore the harmony between art and architecture in Pei’s building over the past half century.
