Sterling Ruby: Ceramics at Museum of Arts and Design

Sterling Ruby: Ceramics is the first museum exhibition to focus on the ceramic works of the Los Angeles –based artist Sterling Ruby. Process and materiality are paramount to Ruby’s practice. He rolls, punches, assembles, and manipulates clay by hand and machine to arrive at basins or vessel-like containers, which often hold the debris of previous kiln misfires. Like a reverse archaeologist, he records the results of his experiments in clay within the final art object.


Sterling Ruby: Ceramics will be on view at the Des Moines Art Center, Iowa, through September 9, 2018. The Museum of Arts and Design is its second venue. The exhibition is accompanied by a full-color catalogue. Its showing at MAD marks Ruby’s first museum exhibition in New York.
