A Crafts Council touring exhibition of portable art, wearable objects; author jewellery from 1970.
I AM HERE is a Crafts Council Touring Exhibition of contemporary jewellery. I AM HERE features 98 pieces of jewellery by European makers from over five decades, starting with pieces from the most radical era of modern jewellery making, the New Jewellery Movement in the 1970’s. The New Jewellery movement of the 1970s saw jewellers using non-precious materials and experimental design to highlight contemporary social and political issues. This shifted our idea of what jewellery could be and had a profound impact on future making both in the UK and beyond.
I AM HERE includes pieces by contemporary jewellery’s biggest stars including Gijs Bakker, David Bielander, Caroline Broadhead, Peter Chang, Gerda Flöckinger, Karl Fritsch, Susanna Heron, Rudolf Kocea, Roger Morris, Ted Noten, Lina Peterson, Dorothea Prühl, Mah Rana, Hans Stofer, Emmy van Leersum and David Watkins.
The exhibition will be on display at the Dick Institute from Saturday 14 January to Saturday 29 April 2017.
The exhibition will be open 10am to 6pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 1pm to 8pm on Thursdays, and 10am to 4pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Closed Sunday and Monday.
