Two exhibitions raising questions on contemporary jewellery
RMIT Design Hub has two exhibitions running concurrently this summer, examining significant questions surrounding contemporary jewellery. The first is 'Lisa Walker: She wants to go to her bedroom but she can't be bothered', a retrospective of more than 200 pieces from internationally renowned New Zealand jeweller Lisa Walker. Lisa's vast body of work is a career-length conversation with the question: what is jewellery?
The second, 'All the jewellery', is an exhibition that exists in a relationship with Lisa Walker's retrospective. This exhibition incorporates a public program of free workshops tackling key questions about contemporary jewellery, including a weekly conversation on topics as broad as 'do rings have souls?', and 'is jewellery a luxury?'.
