Widely recognized as one of the most important ceramic artists working today, Betty Woodman spoke about her life and art on the eve of the opening of an exhibition of her work at the Gardiner Museum. Woodman is a master of colour and form whose painterly sculptures and installations bring images of Matisse, Picasso and Miro to mind. In 2006 she was given a full retrospective at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, an honour rarely bestowed by that institution on an individual living artist. Betty Woodman: Places, Spaces and Things opens to the public at the Gardiner Museum on March 3, 2011.

This talk was presented in partnership with the Gardiner Museum.
