Form | Content 2023 Professional Outreach Program (POP) Exhibition
Submission Dates: December 1, 2022 - January 15, 2023
The Professional Outreach Program is pleased to announce the 2023 exhibition theme, Form | Content. Since 2007, the annual POP show and auction, featuring small-scale works by an international roster of talented emerging and established artists, has been a highlight of the year. As a theme, Form | Content offers many different possibilities: from statements on pure craft (the form is the full meaning or purpose), to thinking about how we use wood, shape, texture, color, surface design, etc. to convey meaning beyond function and beyond. As a play on words, ‘content’ can also refer to the state of being content, or to the contents of a container, since turners are often vessel makers and vessels hold content(s). The theme makes space for all forms of turning.
