“Gold Bricks”, a documentary film by Hongyu Tan

Thursday 3rd October 2019 from 7pm to 9pm
Venue: Ariana Museum

During the evening a documentary film will be screened, preceding which we invite you to attend the vernissage of the first edition of the « Treasure Bowl Collection » which will take place on the 1st Floor of the Ariana Museum from 6:15pm to 7pm.


The documentary film

In affiliation with the Chinese Ceramic Art Project, the Chinese filmmaker and ceramic artist Hongyu Tan will present her documentary “Gold Bricks”, in the presence of French ceramic artist Jacques Kaufmann, whose exhibition “MUR/murs” includes four Lumu gold bricks. 

The documentary and the thoughts expressed by the two speakers on the processes employed for making these unconventional materials will be followed by a discussion. 

Every two years, the International Academy of Ceramics organizes lectures at the Ariana Museum in Geneva. These offer an overview of ceramics along two trajectories: the meeting of regional ceramics and the functioning of institutional structures, such as museums, centers and schools specialized in the field.
