Milton Moon: Crafting modernism

Adelaide

Free
Milton Moon: Crafting modernism explores the life and career of Milton Moon am (1926–2019), one of the most important Australian potters of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. A pioneer of the modernist approach to ceramics in the postwar period, Moon had an enormous impact on Australian art and craft throughout his career as both an artist and educator.

Moon was primarily concerned with making pots that drew from his own environment rather than being influenced by international trends. An avid diver and bushwalker, his work in ceramics explored the elemental and textural nature of the Australian environment.

For the first time, Milton Moon: Crafting modernism contextualises Moon’s sixty-year practice in ceramics within the wider story of Australian art. This exhibition celebrates his highly original and painterly approach to ceramics and examines the influence of Australian modernism and Japanese art on his work, as well as introducing his lesser-known work in painting and drawing.
