PART B Contemporary Jewellery

1 March – 1 April 2011

CURATOR Dianne Beevers

Jana Roman, Earring + Gray’s Anatomy, 2010

lend me your ears addresses the small site of the ear, in a showcase exhibition of jewellery for the ear supported on ironic postcard works, found, or artist generated. The exhibition installation adopts the suite of 19 original mailboxes converted to deliver engaging artworks at MAILBOX 141, an address resonant with decades of Melbourne’s fashion, design and art associations. The exhibition will changeover midway on 17 March to accommodate two sessions, representing  38 contributing jewellers.

PART B is a recently established (mid 2009) and fluid collective of ‘research jewellery’ artists, from Melbourne’s extensive community of jewellers. Representing emerging and established practitioners animating the field of contemporary jewellery, PART B promotes a lively connectivity for its members and audience, encouraging discourse and engagement in exhibitions and events, looking, writing, technical discussions and making sessions. www.part-b.crimsoncactus.net
