Wayne Higby: Infinite Pace

Opening Reception: Thursday, May 22 from 6-8 PM

Organized by Peter Held, curator of ceramics at the ASU Art Museum and Ceramics Research Center in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, Infinite Place: The Ceramic Art of Wayne Higby is a landmark exhibition featuring the work of contemporary ceramist Wayne Higby, who is widely considered one of the most innovative second generation artists to emerge from the post-World War II American ceramic studio movement.  

The 57-piece exhibition is the first major retrospective to provide an in-depth critical analysis of Higby's work from the 1960s to the present, offering a full view of his stylistic development. The exhibition will highlight Higby's earlier raku-fired ceramics and later groundbreaking large-scale architectural wall installations, as well as his study drawings. "My work is a meditation on the relationship between spirit and matter," stated Higby, reflecting on the five decades of his work.
