Tender Brick: The Material Epiphanies of Peter Hawkesby / 24 April – 12 September 2021

A pair of far-flung moments in history set the conditions for Tender Brick: The Material Epiphanies of Peter Hawkesby. The first was when Picasso used glue to make constructions that irrevocably altered the conception of sculpture as a form of ‘carving’ or ‘modelling’ of a singular form. The second is the audacious choice Hawkesby made during the mid-1970s to entirely dispense with the potter’s wheel and make ceramics by any other means.

Tender Brick: The Material Epiphanies of Peter Hawkesby is on show at our object based gallery above the i-SITE, and comes to us from our friends at Objectspace where it was on view from 21 November, 2020 – 21 February, 2021. The exhibition was curated by Richard Fahey and generously supported by Creative NZ.
