Participating in the panel will be Simon Olding; Magdalene Odundo, a potter who synthesizes myriad sources into serenely resolved, sculptural forms; and Clare Twomey, the artist whose monumental eighty-vase installation, Made in China, populates the Entrance Court and other spaces in the Yale Center for British Art this fall.
