Sorry to interrupt your new year, but I have a quick inquiry for the history of Australasian jewellery. Can you tell me what kind of work was in the ‘New Icons’ exhibition with Sheridan Kennedy? Was it commissioned work? Thanks, Warmly,
I have all the early editions of ‘eyeline’ where the show was featured in two reviews – Urszula Szulakowska’s review and Lehan Ramsay’s review.
I designed the graphics and set up the photography as well. Do take the time to read the articles, Roz MacAllan was the gallerist who initiated the show and as you will read was instrumental in positioning her artists as globally relevant at the time. Jewellery is seen as wearable sculpture and performance permeates That Space during those heady days. Collectors continue to make contact with us re: the availability of these early works.
