AJF Hangouts-Oceania

Conversations around the World


On the final day of Melbourne’s Radiant Pavilion, hear voices from the thriving contemporary jewelry scene down South. From Australia, Zoe Brand talks about the rise of education through workshops and Mel Young reflects on the move to take jewelry practice into the outback through initiatives like the Indigenous Jewellery Project. From New Zealand, Kristin D’Agostino comments on the recent decision to close jewelry at Manukau Polytechnic and Keri-Mei Zagrobelna talks about the thriving scene in Wellington and among Māori artists. The conversation then reflects in the vibrancy of Radiant Pavilion, but also the ongoing challenge of taking art beyond the contemporary jewelry circle.
