Invitation to the seminar New Adventures in Jewellery
Welcome to attend the New Adventures in Jewellery Seminar in Gothenburg 19-20th September 2014. This is an international two-day seminar to mark the culmination of the extensive New Adventures in Jewellery events programme in and around Gothenburg. The seminar brings together some of the leading voices in the contemporary jewellery world and aims to explore the way in which jewellery can benefit from adopting new working methods and engage with other fields in the arts. Furthermore, it wants to address the issue of globalization and give example of practices and strategies in jewellery emerging from places other than the cities and schools connected to the field's historical avant-garde.
With keynote speakers coming from Europe, South and North America, Japan and New Zealand, the seminar gives insights into the current jewellery scene across the globe. The keynote lectures will be accompanied by a number of shorter presentations by speakers selected through an open call process.
All lectures are held in English. The seminar will be accompanied by exhibition openings, events and evening festivities. Please join us for a New Adventure in Jewellery!
