Dysfunctional Ceramics exhibit

“It works if it doesn’t work…”

Dysfunctional is not your typical ceramics exhibit. Dysfunctional is an art show about thought-provoking ceramic work that doesn’t serve an immediate practical purpose. It’s about that corner of the ceramics world where form doesn’t follow function, where aesthetic is boss and where practicality is a distant thought.

DYSFUNCTIONAL: A Ceramics Exhibition is curated by ceramic artist Lois Hirshberg and sculptor Neil Grant. Dysfunctional is a selection of sculptures, vessels and other creations where engaging the mind is much more important than fitting the hand. A carefully selected group of Cape Cod artists will challenge you to look at the medium of ceramics differently, focusing on the subject of the piece rather than its utility.
