There is a lack of understanding and confidence with how contemporary art jewellery can be worn and placed on the body.

We want to open the idea that anything imagined can be worn, in the form of contemporary art jewellery that is.

Working with a Melbourne clothing designers on Gertrude Street, we will place contemporary pieces of jewellery on pieces of clothing - for both men and women.

 

This exhibition will draw upon together a group of Australian and International artists which will push the boundary to show the diversity of how contemporary jewellery is worn and placed. It will also acknowledge that what we wear represents ideas and messages, whether subtle or bold.

 

Ensuring contemporary art jewellery is worn correctly and with confidence is one part of the what we do at Bilk Gallery. Not only for the collector, but for the integrity of pieces of art and artists.
