11.06 - 10.7 2009
The title of this exhibition underlines the specificity of contemporary jewellery, and the ambiguity inherent to a craft-based, boundary-pushing practice: the work selected is thus both alien to its tradition, and well versed in its history.
The selection for this touring show focused on the work of 17 makers - French, or working in France - who together make a convincing case for the vitality of this rather under-exposed part of the European contemporary jewellery community.
Alternatives is pleased to present this exhibition in Rome, touring from London and going on to San Francisco later in the year.
