70th Anniversary of the International Academy of Ceramics

The year 2022 marks the 70th anniversary of the International Academy of Ceramics (IAC), created in 1952, which will also hold its 50th congress this year. The congress, Melting Pot: From the alchemist’s crucible to the cultural crucible is being organised by the Swiss association of ceramics, Swissceramics, and will take place between 12 and 16 September at the International Conference Centre Geneva (Centre International des Congrès de Genève, CICG). At the same time, some thirty exhibitions will be held within the Geneva Canton and beyond. The international IAC members’ exhibition will be hosted at the Ariana Museum (Musée Ariana), headquarters of the IAC, and the two national exhibitions will take place at the museum of Château de Nyon and the Neuchâtel Museum of Art and History (Musée d’art et d’histoire). The Bruckner Foundation – Ceramics center has joined this major event by organising the 17th edition of the Parcours Céramique Carougeois (PCC) from 17 to 25 September to mark the occasion.
