Lecture: Damian Skinner
Sep 23 2013 2:30PM - 4:00PM
What makes contemporary jewelry unique? Join Damian Skinner, noted scholar, art historian and curator of Applied Art and Design at the Auckland Museum in New Zealand, for an exciting conversation on the field of contemporary jewelry today and its remarkable future. The discussion, part of the Art Jewelry Forum Speakers Tour marking the publication of AFR’s book Contemporary Jewelry in Perspective, is free and open to the public.
In his talk, Skinner will demonstrate that contemporary jewelry is never just an object that can be divorced from the spaces in which it is encountered and the sites of production where all those involved in contemporary jewelry (makers, dealers, collectors, educators, writers, curators, users and so on) manufacture the various forms of evidence that together make up the field.
