Lisa Walker
She wants to go to her bedroom but she can’t be bothered 
Lisa’s vast body of work is a career-length conversation with the question: what is jewellery? So much of what we want to say about the medium and the discipline of jewellery can be found in her work: it is simultaneously wearable and unwearable, precious and non-precious, skilfully and not skilfully made; it is in dialogue with jewellery’s past as well as current social and political issues and, sometimes, it is meaningless. Lisa’s jewellery is controversial in many of the moves it makes but now, nearly 30 years after she began creating work, her radical gestures are the establishment. The exhibition tracks how Lisa continues to query the tools, methods and materials for making jewellery, and how her work appropriates and transforms its influences. Lisa’s research practice - circling around the history, future and limits of jewellery – takes us into the realm of extremes with the aim of making jewellery, and our encounter of it, more alive. 

All the jewellery
This exhibition of workshops tackles key questions about contemporary jewellery. It brings together a community of jewellers and people who make jewellery, gallerists and collectors and those in the professions that support jewellery-making into a weekly conversation. Each week a different question will be publicly debated and the structure of the workshops will take multiple forms: a discussion, a masterclass, a performance, a seance, for example.  
All the jewellery is an expansive equivalent of Lisa’s show in the number of participants and in the vast terrain of ideas and perspectives we intend to uncover over the period of both exhibitions that have questions at their core. Each workshop will be represented as a film within the exhibition, forming an archive of the current discourse around contemporary jewellery.  

All the jewellery workshop leaders:
Lisa Walker, Claire McArdle, Chloe Powell, Mark Edgoose, Mikala Dwyer, Robyn Healy, non/fiction Lab at RMIT, Debris Facility, Hannah Presley, Roseanne Bartley, Susan Cohn, Manon van Kouswijk, Meredith Turnball and Behn Woods, RMIT Gold & Silversmithing.
