This year’s winner of the Max Mara prize for women shows off anthropological ceramics, while VR brings to life the first ever photography show
The winner of this year’s Max Mara art prize for women is a ceramicist with an interest in anthropology. Her exhibition includes jug-like portrait sculptures inspired by the maiolica tradition of colourful glazed ceramics that started in the Italian Renaissance and is still going strong. Working with artisans in Faenza, she has created work that’s modern in feeling yet ancient in technique.
Whitechapel Gallery, E1, to 3 September
