AJF LIVE: CONTEMPORARY JEWELRY FROM AOTEAROA NEW ZEALAND
Thursday, December 9, 3 p.m. EST
Please note the special time.
You won’t want to miss this behind-the-scenes peek into the jewelry archives of the Tāmaki Paenga Hira Auckland War Memorial Museum—an AJF exclusive! Andrea Low, the museum’s associate curator of contemporary world, and Grace Lai, curator of applied arts and design, will give us a tour of a selection of the museum’s iconic pieces. You’ll see art jewelry by Warwick Freeman, Lisa Walker, Kobi Bossard, Elena Gee, and so many more artists.
The Auckland Museum has a fascinating collection that tells the story of New Zealand and its people through adornments—from Selu tuiga (Samoan head combs) and necklaces to kākahu (Māori cloaks) and rākau Māori (Māori weaponry). The museum owns pieces as old as 900 AD and some made as recently as this year.
Don’t miss this exciting, jewelry-rich event—an AJF Live exclusive!
