CONVERSATIONS@PAM: The Business of Trade Ceramics in Asia

How did the exchange of ceramics affect domestic and international trade along sea and land routes in Asia? How did China and other countries influence ceramics artists?

In conjunction with USC PAM's exhibition China Trade: The Business of Trade Ceramics in Asia, on view in Doheny Memorial Library through August 6th, USC Roski professor and internationally renowned ceramicist Karen Koblitz will talk with Dennis Carr, curator of American Decorative Arts & Sculpture at the Museum of FIne Arts, Boston about the role of ceramics in Asia.

Moderated by Christina Yu Yu, USC PAM Director.

Presented by USC Visions & Voices, the Arts & Humanities Initiative. Organized by USC Pacific Asia Museum.

About the exhibition:
China Trade: Global Market and Chinese Ceramics, drawn from USC PAM's permanent collection, introduces how domestic and international trade along sea and land routes inspired countless exchanges between patrons, artists and merchants. With select examples illustrating various trade models among Asia, Europe and America, China Trade reveals how Asian potters created works for foreign markets and how foreign trade made an impact on the Asian ceramics through new materials and ideas.
