"Blue and white" means, at its simplest, cobalt pigment applied to white clay. Over the course of a millennium, blue- and-white porcelain has become one of the most recognized types of ce- ramic production worldwide. With roots in the Islamic world and Asia, and strong presence in Europe and the Americas, various cultures adapted blue-and-white, from the Willow pattern to isznik. Taking in- spiration from global blue-and-white traditions, today's artists continue the story, creating works that speak to contemporary ideas. They tackle diverse issues, ranging from the pub- lic, to the personal, to the aesthetic. *New Blue and White" explores the ways in which contemporary makers, working in ceramics as well as other media ranging from fiber to furniture to glass, have explored this rich body of material culture. An international selection of artists and designers is featured in the exhibition, and re- cent acquisitions of work by the ce- ramic sculptor Chris Antcmann and fashion designers Rodarte are drawn from the MFA's own collection. Visi- tors can make connections between these contemporary statements and their remarkable historical predeces- sors. Illustrated labels thorught the exhibition provide some examples of blue and white ceramics currently on view--but there are many more. Dis- cover blue and white porcelain in galleries across the Museum.
