Most of us have at one time or another worn a badge or button. It might have been a Peace Symbol, a Girl Scout pin or badge from your favorite sports team. These are pins with a purpose. They express your political views, belonging to a particular group or just saying “this is who I am”.  Badges can indicate some feat of service, a special accomplishment or a symbol of authority, such as a policeman’s badge. Badges & Buttons Waistcoats & Vests is an exhibition exploring the notion of this modest form of jewelry.

Curators Elizabeth Turrell (UK) & Robert Ebendorf (USA) have asked 26 artists, mostly from the United Kingdom and the US, to come up with their own kind of button with a message. The artist badges are displayed on vests or waistcoats – vintage, altered or custom-made clothing puts the jewelry on an imagined wearer.
