Ann Agee (American, b. 1959) Studio pottery platter with a central image of an topiary labyrinth surrounded by panels of blue and white floral decoration and having hand formed vine and leaf handles. 1990. Signed and dated on underside. Measures 22in x 15in x 3.25in. Condition: Very minor fleabite chips at edges are noticeable only under scrutiny. Agee is famous (at least with me) for her installation at the Kohler Art Museum Men’s Room, a riot of blue and white porcelain which whimsically references the historical significance of the medium while playfully eluding that this is in fact the Men’s Room. Google it, it’s well worth a look. Agee graduated with a BFA from The Cooper Union School of Art and an MFA from Yale School of Art. She taught at Princeton University as a Visiting Lecturer at the Lewis Center for the Arts from 2006-2010. She has been a recipient of the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award, and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, among others. She has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions across the United States, and her work is in the collections of The Brooklyn Museum of Art, NY; The Philadelphia Museum of Art, PA; The RISD Museum, RI; The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA; The Henry Art Museum in Seattle, WA; The Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan, WI; and The Museum of Contemporary Art in Miami, FL.
