Ken Price


Ken Price (born 1935) is known for his influential work in ceramics, and often associated with the Finish Fetish school of artists working in Los Angeles, including Billy Al Bengston, Ed Ruscha, and Larry Bell, who were similarly known for their use of meticulous industrial finishes and brilliant colors associated with southern California. Price had only one museum survey exhibition of his work during his lifetime, which was organized by the Menil Collection in Houston in 1992. A major survey exhibition opened at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 2012, the year he died.
