all month

  • NGV (International), Winter Masterpieces ‘European Masters: Städel Museum, 19th–20th Century‘ [link]; until 10th October
  • Melbourne Museum ‘Titanic – the Artefact Exhibition‘ [link]; I’m in two minds about seeing this, as their Pompeii exhibition was pitched more at a ‘populist’ level and I didn’t find it enjoyable at all, and also I’m not sure if there will be any decorative arts / jewellery; but I may try to see it out of curiosity anyway; until 17th October

1st July: last day for Metalab, David Neale’s ‘Some and None: Jewellery as Graphics‘ [link; kit and caboodle]; I’ve developed quite an attachment to David’s pieces

3rd July: last day for Gallery Funaki, Karl Fritsch ‘Freeling‘ [link] “I will be showing my first ‘made in New Zealand’ pieces. I’ve just built my own workshop in Wellington and am still keen to build more things. I like it…“; my review story here

The exhibition will consist of the first piece and last piece that these Jewellers have made and very literally tells of stories about where these makers have come from, where they have been and ultimately where they are heading.“; until 10th August
