New Adventures in Jewellery

This international two-day seminar took place in Gothenburg 19-20th of September 2014. The idea of the seminar was to explore how art jewellery can benefit from adopting new working methods and engage with other fields in the arts. The aim was also to address the issue of globalisation 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.


The keynote speakers from Europe, South and North America, Japan and New Zealand gave insights to the current jewellery scenes across the globe. The keynote lectures were also accompanied by a number of shorter presentations by speakers selected through an open call process. 


Over 130 people attended the seminar which took place at HDK - School of Design and Craft. A summary of the seminar will be presented here shortly.
