Holocaust Memorial Day Trust
Stephen Fry joins a diverse group of British artists and Holocaust and genocide survivors in launching a major new arts project in which survivors’ stories will be interpreted and explored through writing, poetry, film, ceramics, illustration and collage. The Memory Makers project is pairing seven artists with survivors of genocide living in the UK. The artists have partnered with survivors to hear their remarkable life stories, before creating a work of art that captures the experience of the meeting.
Ceramicist Clare Twomey met Nisad ‘Šiško’ Jakupovi%u0107, who survived the notorious Omarska concentration camp during the Bosnian War. Nisad experienced the horror of communities turning on one another as school friends became oppressors. The pair discussed Nisad’s experience of the camps, and how human solidarity can triumph even in horrific circumstances.

Overthrown: Clay Without Limits
On view through September 18, 2011
Clare Twomey has made a site specific work that extends across the whole of the Art Museum, this sculptural work was commissioned to run along side the exhibition - Overthrown: Clay Without Limits. In the exhibition Overthrown many of the works are in direct dialogue with our dynamic Daniel Libeskind-designed architecture; they move beyond the pedestal to the wall, the floor, and even the ceiling. A few extend beyond the Anschutz Gallery, across the entire museum complex. They break boundaries that are physical, technological, conceptual, and spatial.
