The Ceramic Presence in Modern Art Wins Book Awards

The Gallery is thrilled to announce that The Ceramic Presence in Modern Art: Selections from the Linda Leonard Schlenger Collection and the Yale University Art Gallery has recently been named the recipient of two publication awards. The catalogue received a bronze medal in the fine arts category of the Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY), which honors the year’s best independently published titles from around the world, and was granted an honorable mention in the books category of the New England Museum Association Publication Awards Competition, which showcases the best our region has to offer in museum publishing. The first volume to thoroughly examine postwar ceramic sculpture alongside other fine art of the period, The Ceramic Presence in Modern Art demonstrates that the most exceptional ceramics share the formal sophistication of celebrated works in more conventional media. In her review of the fall 2015 exhibition that the catalogue accompanied, Susan Hodara of the New York Times noted that the publication “support[s] the curators’ contention that ceramic sculptures should be fully integrated into the canon of modern and contemporary fine art.” With over 130 illustrations, including installation photographs of the exhibition, the book encourages readers to discover unexpected connections between ceramics and paintings, sculptures, and prints.
