EXHIBITION ||| THE ESSENTIALS

As part of the Toronto Design Offsite Festival, Harbourfront Centre is presenting The Essentials, an exhibition curated by Melanie Egan, Director of Craft and Design at Harbourfront Centre. I am happy to announce that I was invited to be part of this exhibition featuring works by 7 contemporary jewellery artists.

Contemporary jewellery is a term widely used since the 1960s. It typifies a particular genre of jewellery that is made mostly by hand; not necessarily of precious metals, although it can be; often uses alternative materials; is not necessarily functional; and is conceptually driven. Much like contemporary art, contemporary jewellery expands our view of ourselves, society and the world-at-large. The uniqueness and attraction of contemporary jewellery is its direct connection to the body and ability to convey messages at an intimate level.

The Essentials is an exhibition devoted to the contemporary jewellery we wear daily. We deem essentials as basic and important in our lives. To choose contemporary jewellery rather than commercial or mass-produced jewellery defines the wearer and their interests.

At the heart of the exhibition is an opportunity to change perceptions about contemporary jewellery and its role in our daily lives. The work in this exhibition expresses the view that contemporary jewellery is not an extraordinary option but a necessary day-to-day choice.

The Essentials
January 21 to June 18 2017
Opening reception: January 27, 6-10 pm

Harbourfront Centre - East Vitrines
