Magic City is an exhibition of current work from recent graduates and established artists from the School of Jewellery, Birmingham, UK. Contrary to the often-remarked grey of its post industrialism, Birmingham, a city of multiple cultures, has become a vibrant center for the arts. The work of these eighteen artists exemplifies a spectrum of artistic practice at times undefinable as a simple category of jewelry. They communicate through their choice of material, method of manufacture and strategy for narrative. Forging a strong presence within the art jewelry world, they are producing distinctive and desirable work that is offbeat, loud, quiet, funny, thoughtful, unfamiliar and unabashed.
