Update for April 2011

16th April: Part B Melbourne jewellers gathering, 2pm, Pieces of Eight

19th April: Jacqui Chan ‘Material Migrations‘ [link]; “Material Migrations is an urban jewellery project that explores how objects can mediate our relationship with the urban milieu .  The project focuses on the site of Chinatown, approaching it as an ongoing coalescence of materials and bodies over time… Participants are invited to wear a brooch in daily life and to notice which aspects of urban environment the work draws attention to.  They are asked to take a series of photos of themselves wearing the work in such situations. The photos will be added to a growing video work that documents the dispersal of these works into the city and the emerging relations between wearers, jewellery and the urban milieu.“; until 23rd May
