Conversation with the Artist: Adam Silverman
Celebrate a new special edition by artist Adam Silverman. In conjunction with the exhibition California Design, 1930–1965: "Living in a Modern Way", he has created a limited edition ceramic work. The edition of 25, plus two artist proofs, includes a stoneware pot, an accompanying photograph, and 10 postcards with an image of the work in the artist’s studio. The work responds to the history of design in California and explores twentieth-century art in Los Angeles from 1945-1980. The photograph is an homage to Julius Shulman whose iconic photography of modern architecture celebrates and promotes the landmark designs of the period. Trained in both fine art and architecture, Silverman is also the studio director of and partner in Heath Ceramics. Silverman will be in conversation with Kulapat Yantrasast, principal of wHY Architecture.Yantrasast was born in Thailand, educated and trained in Japan, and worked with architect Tadao Ando before arriving in Los Angeles. wHY architecture 's works include Grand Rapids Art Museum, the first new art museum in the world to receive the LEED gold certification.
