This exhibition is a homage to the first presentation of contemporary ceramics at the Baur Collection, organised in autumn 1966. Following the same theme, it traces the careers over the intervening four decades of the artists who were present at the original show: Philippe Lambercy (deceased in 2006), Edouard Chapallaz, Aline Favre and Claude Presset. In addition, Jacques Haeberlin, a student of Lambercy, and the Korean master Se-yong Kim are also represented. Reference is made to traditional tea culture, source of inspiration for European ceramics from the beginning of the 20th century, by a number of objects from the Museum’s collection. This exhibition is presented in association with the 10th Parcours céramique of Carouge.
