Kari Marboe Artist Talk
August 2, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Kari Maboe will give a talk about the work she has been developing during her fellowship at Greenwich House Pottery.
Kari Marboe uses her artwork to engage communities with each other and with the past by delving into archives and using digital tools to present her research in clay. She is working on a collaborative exhibition project called “Duplicating Daniel” with the Mills College Art Museum, which will be on view at the museum January 22–March 15, 2020. The project records Marboe’s attempts to “return” a Daniel Rhodes sculpture that is missing from the museum’s archives based on the only remaining evidence of it: a blurry photograph and its accession information.
Daniel Rhodes (1922–1988) was a ceramic artist who taught at Alfred University for 25 years and is probably best known for writing “Clay and Glazes for the Potter” (1957). His history overlaps with Greenwich House Pottery’s several times: he had an exhibition at GHP in 1962, one of his sculptures was part of GHP’s permanent collection, and he taught Minnie Negoro (GHP faculty, 1963–1965) ceramics while she was interned at Wyoming’s Heart Mountain Relocation Center. Marboe has used her fellowship at the Pottery to look into our archive and further investigate the connection between Rhodes and GHP to inform her “Duplicating Daniel” project.
