LACMA is delighted to announce a new special edition with 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 Untitled (LACMA/PST edition), 2011.
The edition of 25, plus two artists proofs, includes a signed and numbered 12” x 8” stoneware pot, a signed, numbered and framed 11” x 14” black and white photograph of the image on this postcard, and 10 of these postcards.
The work responds to the history of design in California and the Pacific Standard Time initiative at LACMA and museums across Southern California that explores twentieth-century art in Los Angeles from 1945-1980. Silverman has created a ceramic work inspired by the artists, architects, and designers of that era. The edition also includes a framed black and white photograph of the edition being made in Silverman’s Los Angeles studio. The photograph is an homage to Julius Shulman whose iconic photography of modern architecture celebrates and promotes the landmark designs of the period. Each edition will also include a set of post cards of the same image with a description of the work for the owner to share with others.
Trained in both fine art and architecture, Adam Silverman is also the studio director of and partner in Heath Ceramics. A veteran Sausalito manufacturer of stoneware, Heath Ceramics is represented in LACMA’s exhibition by several classic designs for the table.
Adam Silverman has exhibited extensively in the US and Japan. His large-scale installation piece, Boolean Valley, (done with architect Nader Tehrani) has been exhibited at The San Jose Museum of Art, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, and most recently at The Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas. Several ceramic works by Adam Silverman are in LACMA’s permanent collection. He is currently working on a project at The Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth Texas, where he is harvesting clay, and other materials from the construction site of the Renzo Piano addition currently being built next to the iconic, original building by Louis Kahn, as well as materials from the Kahn building to use in the creation of a long term, large scale project.
