UNEXPECTED PLEASURES


Unexpected Pleasures is a major touring exhibition of art jewellery by important jewellers of our time. The exhibition questions what jewellery is, suggesting it's at the cusp of jewellery and design. I propose you pop down to the NGV and judge for yourself - it's a must see eye-opener.

"Unexpected Pleasures looks at what we mean by jewellery from a number of different perspectives. Taking as its starting point the radical experiments of the Contemporary Jewellery Movement that challenged a conventional understanding of the language of personal adornment, and looking instead at the essential meanings of jewellery."
