In No Particular Order features new work made within Ian McDonald’s first year as Artist-in-Residence and Head of the Ceramics department at Cranbrook Academy of Art. The exhibition continues Ian’s interest in displacing the hierarchy within the objects created in his studio. Ranging in scale and built through multiple processes, forms balance between sculpture and design, coexisting in a state of equilibrium. An accomplished ceramicist, McDonald’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States, Europe and Japan. His work has appeared in numerous publications including Art Forum, Metropolis, Wallpaper magazine, Ceramics Monthly, Dwell and The New York Times.
In No Particular Order: New Work by Ian McDonald is organized by Cranbrook Art Museum and curated by Jon P. Geiger. The exhibition is supported by members of the Museum Committee and ArtMembers at Cranbrook. Generous support for exhibitions and programs at Cranbrook Art Museum is provided by the Maxine and Stuart Frankel Foundation.
