Variations on Cups from RAM’s Collection January 27 – August 7, 2021
I have been curated into a show at the Racine Art Museum located in Racine, Wisconsin, a historic community on the shores of Lake Michigan. It is home to the largest contemporary craft collection in North America, and the Wustum Museum of Fine Arts. They are running an exhibit featuring fun and exotic takes on the “Cup.” One of the most intimate vessels known to our species. We use cups every day, measuring, drinking, even holding ones tooth brush.
Unlike the teapot, whose functionality and meaning has been challenged or reframed repeatedly, the cup has not been the source of as many philosophical investigations within the field of contemporary craft. This does not mean it has been marginalized or avoided. In fact, handmade cups are ever popular as serving ware and the cup as a subject continues to be an organizing theme for numerous exhibitions in galleries and museums.-RAM
