What defines and separates the practices of the artist, the designer, and the craftsman? Or are there instances where they are all the same person? “The 21st century being what it is,” Glenn Adamson, director of the Museum of Arts and Design in NY said, “categories are points of reference, but not very useful as containers of people.” Pieces that imply a wearable function exist in a limbo space where they can fall into any category. This exhibition showcases innovative works that challenge the traditions of jewelry, fashion, and wearable art as both “personal adornment and public sculpture” (Victoria Golmesky NYTimes). Selections were curated by Yevgeniya Kaganovich, an artist, wearables designer, Professor and Chair of the Department of Art and Design at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and head of its thriving Jewelry and Metalsmithing program.
