Full Description

The exhibition and its accompanying catalogue are the first to examine the union of contemporary jewellery and the photographic image, demonstrating how each of these mediums is informed and enlarged by an engagement with the other. The works included, both historical pieces and recent creations by over eighty international art jewellers, suggest the richness of this encounter and the artistic strength embodied in this dynamic combination of object and image. The examples selected for the exhibition and catalogue traverse a remarkably wide range, from traditional and even sentimental formats (such as the locket) to entirely new formats. Drawing upon the abundance of imagery available today, from vintage daguerreotypes to analog and digital photographs, X-rays, and Internet jpegs, the artists whose work was selected for Multiple Exposures: Jewelry and Photography express a stimulating range of ideas realised with a great diversity of materials and innovative jewellery-making approaches. Includes the work of artists from the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium, Finland, Spain, Israel, India, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil.
