Started in the 1930s, Wakefield’s ceramic collection includes some of the great names of modern pottery, including Bernard Leach, Barbara Cass, Lucie Rie and Hans Coper. For this exhibition, London-based British artist Serena Korda will select highlights from Wake eld’s collection to show alongside her own work. Korda combines sound with ceramics exploring their history and variety of uses.

On display will be a new presentation of her ceramic sound installation Hold Fast, Stand Sure, I Scream a Revolution, originally commissioned by Glasgow School of Art, Comar and Glasgow International 2016 alongside new work, currently being developed, that will be exhibited for the first time at The Hepworth Wakefield.
