Upcoming exhibitions

  • Emily Beckley Indigenous Jewellery  

    Fri Apr 12 2019 - Mon May 06 2019

    Solo exhibition by Torres Strait Islander artist Emily Beckley of striking metal jewellery developed in workshops with the Indigenous Jewellery Project.

    A pioneering artist Beckley has been working with the Indigenous Jewellery Project since 2018. Her work as a contemporary jeweller consists of a nuanced exploration of multi-faceted aspects of her culture and traditions.

    She is the first Torres Strait Islander contemporary jeweller to recreate the Haddon Pendants, a series of traditional bridal pendants made by her ancestors now held in the British Museum, in metals. Tellingly in this series she aims to express, as she describes, the "softer, more romantic side of Torres Strait Islander culture", whose contemporary art is famous more for its warrior depictions.

    Opening events: Saturday April 20 at 2 pm.
    In conversation with Emily Beckley and IJP curator Emily McCulloch Childs
    Followed by opening drinks

    Free event. Bookings essential
