In conjunction with his lecture, the List Gallery welcomed Kevin Snipes: Uncontained, an exhibition of approximately 16 ceramic works.

Kevin Snipes embellishes his unconventional ceramic forms with an inventive array of drawn and painted imagery. Using traditional pottery surface techniques such as mishima and sgraffito, both of which involve carving away part of the surface of the porcelain clay body, he suggests multi-layered narratives. His animated drawings, implied narratives, humorous juxtapositions, and complex surfaces explore the concepts of identity and otherness.
