Featuring the work of some of Melbourne’s most exciting artists and jewellery practitioners, Signature Style is a significant addition to the emerging discourse around collaboration and contemporary craft.
Opening 6pm Thursday 7 March 2013
Showing 8 March – 27 April 2013
Signature Style is a major group exhibition exploring models of collaborative practice in contemporary jewellery. Featuring the work of some of Melbourne’s most exciting artists and jewellery practitioners Signature Style will be a significant addition to the emerging discourse around collaboration and contemporary craft. Collaboration poses a very different method of working – by its very nature, collaboration eschews individual artistic identity in favour of some kind of ‘third’ position. Signature Style will examine new methodologies of working and ‘work’, thinking through the potentials of collaboration within craft and design.
A FREE forum with the Signature Style artists will be held at Craft on Saturday 6 April 2013. Details here.
