“Rogue Objects” highlights more than one hundred ceramic works that have never been publicly shown, along with new artwork by Japanese-based artists Koki Tanaka and Kumie Tsuda. Tanaka and Tsuda are the first visual artists to work with the ASU Art Museum’s Ceramic Research Center archives, specifically focusing on the archive of artist and historian Susan Peterson. Both artists were influenced by the correspondence between Peterson and Japanese ceramic artist Shōji Hamada. Sifting through ephemera, photography and film, Tanaka has created a new experimental video titled “Mashiko, Arizona,” based on the relationship between Peterson and Hamada. Tsuda researched ceramic pieces from the ASU Art Museum’s 5,000 plus collection to develop an installation entitled “Still There” that questions museum practices on caring for a collection.
