On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Tasmanian Ceramics Association, Grace will give an illustrated talk that considers ceramic practice in Tasmania in the context of its history. Using the example of this and other anniversaries (including, in Tasmania, the founding of Salamanca Place and the Franklin River protests) and her experience of recent exhibition and publication projects, she will discuss the importance for contemporary artists of archival documentation of significant events. At the same time, she will refer to some of the wider changing relationships in the crafts between art, design, industry and the marketplace and the interface between traditional and new technologies.
