ABOUT THE NEW NCECA ANNUAL
In 2017 NCECA launches a new annual exhibition platform that will replace the Biennial and Invitational, which have been produced in alternating years since 2010. The refreshed NCECA Annual exhibition format is being developed in response to feedback from members. The new model seeks to blend impactful attributes of each of the previous models while also cultivating opportunity for curatorial practice in regard to ceramic art.
NCECA’s aspiration is to evolve the exhibition model in a manner that will enable exceptional work to be represented in a way that celebrates concerns of materiality and conceptual rigor. One outcome that NCECA will remain committed to will be that comparatively under-exposed artists will have an opportunity to present their work with that of established and important emerging creators in the field.
The NCECA Annual will enable the vision of a single curator to frame an organizing concept and to support the exhibition’s foundational ideas through the inclusion of works by up to five invited artists making important contributions to the field. The remainder of the exhibition will be selected through an open submission, blind review and selection process. The single curator model will provide an annually recurring opportunity for a particular point of view on the field to emerge as the result of a unique, informed, and thoughtful vision.
