Seminar: 'Staging Sculpture'

Seminar: 'Staging Sculpture'

Performance Research Network Seminar Series 2021–2

Eva Masterman, 'Staging Sculpture'

Eva Masterman is an artist working primarily with clay. She has an MA in Ceramics and Glass from the Royal College of Art, and is currently a PhD student at Newcastle University, where she recently completed the Norma Lipman Ceramic Fellowship. She has exhibited widely, including at the 2017 British Ceramics Biennial; and is a co-founder of social outreach art collective Collective Matter. Her podcast, Clay Commons, launched earlier this month, investigating community ceramics and clay as a force for good. 

For this talk, Eva will reflect on her work as Norma Lipman Fellow in ceramics, looking at the intersections of clay sculpture and staging, including a collaboration with the music department on the opera Dido and Aeneas, and will also introduce her new PhD research on clay studios, community and the performative natures of teaching and making with clay.

Please join us for the first Performance Research Network seminar of the academic year. All are welcome.
