Intro
Join us on Saturday 7 December from 3 pm as artists from the HANDSHAKE 5: in site exhibition introduce their work ahead of the official exhibition opening from 4 pm. This is a unique opportunity to hear from contemporary jewellers from across Aotearoa, who have come to Te Uru in Titirangi for an exhibition responding to the dynamic architecture of our purpose-built gallery.
While jewellers commonly dress the body as an intimate, typically small-scale process, HANDSHAKE 5 brings together ten jewellers for an exhibition that explores the potential of jewellery in large-scale spaces. With materials spanning wood, metal, found object, video projection and virtual reality, HANDSHAKE 5: in site presents the culmination of almost ten years of learning through the HANDSHAKE programme, which has provided a platform for individual growth and a broader experience of cultural and artistic exchange.

HANDSHAKE 5: in site features artists Vivien Atkinson, Becky Bliss, Nadene Carr, Nik Hanton, Kelly McDonald, Neke Moa, Brendon Monson, Sandra Schmid, Caroline Thomas and Sarah Walker-Holt.
