Cerámica Suro: A Story of Collaboration, Production, and Collecting in the Contemporary Arts will be the first comprehensive American presentation of the studio’s influence on contemporary art vis-à-vis the collection amassed by José Noé Suro and his wife Marcela. Selections from this collection, which is made up of over 700 pieces, are curated into the exhibition by Executive Director and Chief Curator of Guadalajara’s Zapopan Art Museum (MAZ), Viviana Kuri, who also organized the previous iteration of the exhibition at MAZ.

"Cerámica Suro: A Story of Collaboration, Production, and Collecting in the Contemporary Arts" features three thematic elements that together tell a single story of a personal collection: pieces produced in the Cerámica Suro workshop by artists who have used high-fired ceramic or other techniques or materials; productions aimed at the fields of industrial design and architecture; and a representative survey of the history of contemporary art from the late twentieth century to the present day, with pieces by both Mexican and foreign artists who have been associated with the workshop through collaborative efforts and exchanges.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through December 31.
