Ariel Brice (Pittsburgh, PA 1980) is an artist and exhibition organizer who lives and works in Madison, Wisconsin. He produces objects and installations that explore differences between optical appearance and physical experience. His artistic interests and curatorial endeavors share a fascination in perceptual shifts and moments where the ordinary and extraordinary seem to share the same space. Since graduating from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2009, he has held artist residencies at sundaymorning@ekwc in 's-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands, and the Pottery Workshop in Jingdezhen, China. Brice's artwork is exhibited nationally and internationally. In 2011, he was invited to participate in the 10DAYS Ceramics Camp residency in conjunction with the Gyeonggi International Ceramics Biennial in Icheon, South Korea. He is a recent recipient of a Louis Comfort Tiffany Award. Currently, he is a lecturer in ceramics in the Art Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
