‘Lend me Your Ears’ opens today!

1 03 2011

An exhibition that I’m so proud to be part of opens today.

Lend me Your Ears‘ opens at Mailbox 141. The works are by participants and supporters of the Melbourne jewellery gathering group Part B.

Exhibition media: “lend me your ears addresses the small site of the ear, in a showcase exhibition of jewellery for the ear supported on ironic postcard works, found, or artist generated. The exhibition installation adopts the suite of 19 original mailboxes converted to deliver engaging artworks at MAILBOX 141, an address resonant with decades of Melbourne’s fashion, design and art associations. The exhibition will changeover midway to accommodate two sessions, representing 38 contributing jewellers.

I am part of the first 19 exhibiting group. Our work will be there until 17th March. There will be a changeover, so that there will be a whole new set of 19 artists’ works from 18th March for the remainder of the exhibition.

The official opening night celebration for the first group is on Thursday 3rd March 5:30 – 7pm. There is talk of a possible second opening night – will post details when details are finalised.

Lend me Your Ears‘ is at Mailbox 141 until 1st April 2011, and is part of the L’Oreal Fashion Festival.
