Up to 41 works by artists from 20 countries are set to enliven the 4th Jakarta Contemporary Ceramics Biennale at the National Gallery in Jakarta from Dec. 7 to Jan 22, 2017.
Said to be the largest contemporary ceramics art biennale in Southeast Asia, this year’s exhibition presents the theme "Ways of Clay: Perspective Toward the Future", which interprets history as a point of view to further understand how the practice of ceramic arts will progress in the near future, as reported by tempo.co on Tuesday.

Curator Nurdian Ischan said that the theme arose from the current reality that clay and ceramics were still a highly sought-after medium for artists.
The biennale will also bring together dozens of ceramic artists from Asia, Australia, Europe and America, said gallery head Tubagus Andre Sukmana. (mra/kes)
