All the jewellery
All the jewellery is an exhibition that exists in a relationship with Lisa Walker’s retrospective at RMIT Design Hub Gallery. Ths exhibition of workshops tackles key questions about contemporary jewellery. It brings together a community of jewellers, gallerists and collectors and those in the professions that support jewellery-making into a weekly conversation. Each week a different question will be publicly debated and the structure of the workshops will take multiple forms: a discussion, a masterclass, a performance, a seance, for example.
All the jewellery is an expansive equivalent of Lisa’s show in the number of participants and in the vast terrain of ideas and perspectives we intend to uncover over the period of both exhibitions that have questions at their core. Each workshop will be represented as a film within the exhibition, forming an archive of the current discourse around contemporary jewellery.
All the jewellery will be accompanied by a book designed by Ziga Testen, published by the Bowen Street Press at the end of 2019.
All workshops will be held 12:30 – 1:30pm on Wednesdays.
Full list of workshops and workshop leaders coming soon.
