Camp Fires: Subversive Queer Concepts in Clay

Camp Fires, at the Gardiner Museum in Toronto, reveals the concept of "camp" in the work of three important Francophone Canadian ceramic artists: Léopold L. Foulem, Paul Mathieu, and Richard Milette. Camp Fires is an often sensual encounter of these artists' powerful body of work, one that addresses subversive ideas about queer identity through clay.
