Fletcher Challenge Ceramics Award: a cultural enquiry
28th January 2010 - 20th March 2010

The Fletcher Challenge Ceramics Award (1977-1998) was for many years New Zealand's most enduring art award. Certainly, it was our most internationalist visual arts award and one of the most generously sponsored. While many visual arts awards came and went during this time, this partnership between Auckland Studio Potters and Fletcher Brownbuilt and then Fletcher Challenge, has bequeathed a number of legacies.

This exhibition - an ‘enquiry' into the Award - brings together almost all of the winning pots from Australia, Japan, France, New Zealand, Switzerland, the United States and the United Kingdom, which are now owned by the Fletcher Trust. Susannah Israel is the only artist from the USA to win the Premier Award, for Lobo California. Looking at contemporary accounts of annual award exhibitions, curator Grant Thompson interrogates the formation of this unique collection and the culture of the Award itself.
