Inner City Catalog published by RISD Museum of Art
Inner City is an installation of more than 180 figurative and architectural ceramic elements by Arnie Zimmerman. The exhibition encapsulates the human condition: men are engaged in activities ranging from the grandest of feats to the repetitive aspects of the everyday, as they build buildings and carry out mundane chores. Zimmerman’s work is rooted in the myriad details of ordinary experience and at the same time it seems fantastical. His figures reflect ceramic traditions as much as they comment on contemporary urban life. Inner City is a collaboration with the architect Tiago Montepegado, who designs the site-specific architectural framework for the ceramic sculpture.
