Joyaviva opens in Sydney 31 July


31 July – 31 August 2012

Curated by Kevin Murray, Joyaviva: Live Jewellery from across the Pacific is an exhibition of beautiful, potent objects that recover the power of jewellery in our world.
Made by a new wave of jewellers from Australia, New Zealand and Chile, each of the pieces on display is ‘alive’ as a device for sharing hopes and responding to our fears – ranging from threat of earthquakes to success in a school exam. Created from diverse materials, these objects link people together – transforming private wishes into shared stories.

Jacqui Chan, Ilse-Marie Erl, Sarah Read, Gina Ropiha, Areta Wilkinson, Matthew Wilson, Katheryn Yeats (Aotearoa / New Zealand)

    • At the moment, Joyaviva is limited to artists in Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Bolivia and Mexico. But I’ve noted your website for any further opportunities that might emerge.
