Betty Woodman

Ceramics was art's hottest trend of 2015 – and we're not just talking about The Great Pottery Thrown Down. You couldn't move for pottery given a witty, conceptual twist by contemporary artists including Jesse Wine and Aaron Angell. In 2016, that trend looks set to continue: the ICA will be giving Betty Woodman her first UK show. The US sculptor has worked with clay since the '50s – long before the current vogue for art-ceramics – to create jazzy mixed-media pieces that combine ceramics and painting techniques. Concentrating on work produced over the past decade, this show will fill the ICA galleries with Woodman's unabashedly decorative, celebratory work that samples everything from Minoan and Egyptian art to the paintings of Bonnard, Picasso and Matisse.
