Join us for a conversation with three of the most exciting contemporary artists working in jewelry today. Melanie Bilenker, Tiff Massey, and Mallory Weston create provocative, relevant, and socially engaged work. Each posits adornment not just as aesthetic decoration, but as a vital and urgent means of connecting past to present, and communicating visions of the future through design. Their work traverses themes of identity, labor, and symbolism, and their practices engage a range of historical and present-day source materials, including a modern take on Victorian mourning jewelry, traditions from the African continent, and pop culture.
