Theaster Gates - A Clay Sermon
White Cube is pleased to present a new exhibition by Theaster Gates at Mason’s Yard, coinciding with the Whitechapel Gallery’s A Clay Sermon.
Part of a multi-venue presentation across London dedicated to Gates’ practice working with clay, the White Cube selection includes new works made at the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts in Montana, and an accompanying film, which focusses on the history of clay in the UK, US and Japan.
The research for these projects has been developed in conjunction with the V&A South Kensington and V&A East, where Gates has been Emeritus Fellow at the V&A Research Institute (VARI). An intervention in the V&A’s Ceramics Galleries opens this autumn.
As part of the same project, next year Gates will conceive the 2022 Serpentine Pavilion, an annual architectural commission and platform for live summer programmes.
