David Packer Lecture

October 11, 2012
2:00 - 3:00 pm OR 6:00 - 7:00 pm

The lecture is free and open to the public. To reserve your spot please RSVP. Please be sure to specify whether you will be attending the afternoon or evening lecture.

In 2011, David Packer lived in the medina of Fez, Morocco, studying the different types of ceramic production, working with local ceramic artists, and exhibiting extensively.

This lecture will detail the collaborative ceramic project that he completed, the ensuing exhibitions of both ceramics and works on paper, as well as images from various factories and warehouses. Morocco is world renowned for its ceramic traditions, using clay for vessels, roof tiles and mosaics; examples of all these different types of work will be shown. The enduring strength of this tradition will also be discussed, as global forces in the form of imported plastic products become widely available, relegating some ceramics to products produced solely for tourists.

David Packer's project was funded with a grant from the Fulbright Commission.
