LBMAx is pleased to present PRAXIS, a group exhibition that presents a breadth of practices that exploit the malleability of clay as a material that can operate as a mark, a symbol, a poem, a canvas, a metaphor, a memory, an existential question, a political statement, or a vehicle for social and cultural commentary.
This exhibition is in conjunction with the 2018 inaugural artist in residence program hosted by Long Beach City College Ceramics. The selected artists are creating works such as the ones exhibited here in the presence of LBCC students who witness the intricate process of the conception, creation, and dissemination of these fantastic artworks. The residency program is indicative of the high quality art education LBCC students can access in the Visual and Media Arts Department of Long Beach City College. This artist-in-residence program would not be possible without the generous support of this year’s LBCC Auxiliary Student Success Grant.
