Intro
2010 the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull began a series of explosive eruptions of ash which disrupted air travel and the environment. In Mexico City, the jewelry symposium Walking the Gray Area was coming to an end. Eyjafjallajökull stranded 18 jewelers who had attended the event. Under That Cloud is their response to these unexpected days spent there.
An exhibition of jewelry inspired by 18 artists stranded in Mexico City under the Icelandic volcanic ash cloud, curated by Jo Bloxham.

In April of 2010 the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull began a series of explosive eruptions of ash which disrupted air travel and the environment. Hundreds were evacuated and thousands watched as huge ash plumes erupted 8 kilometers into the sky for days on end. Across the globe in Mexico City, the jewelry symposium Walking the Gray Area was coming to an end. Eyjafjallajökull stranded 18 jewelers who had attended the event in Mexico City. Under That Cloud is their response to these unexpected days spent there. This exhibition began at Galerie Spektrum in Munich, Germany during the Schmuck 2011 jewelry festival and then continued to Velvet da Vinci in San Francisco, now it is shown in Manchester Art Gallery. Last stop will be Klimt02 Gallery, Barcelona
