Intro
Radiant Pavilion is a celebration of the many aspects of contemporary jewellery and object practice in Melbourne and around the world.
Drawing from the strong community surrounding contemporary jewellery and object in Melbourne, Radiant Pavilion has taken shape over the past five years and encompasses events from national and international artists.
Radiant Pavilion would like to acknowledge the people of the Woi wurrung and Boon wurrung language groups of the eastern Kulin Nations, on whose unceded lands we conduct business and present this event. We respectfully acknowledge their Ancestors and Elders, past, present and emerging. We also acknowledge the Traditional Custodians and their Ancestors of the lands and waters across Australia.

Radiant Pavilion is a celebration of the many aspects of contemporary jewellery and object practice. It draws on a strong local community and reaches out to the international field to create a southern focal point for the art form.

In this, it’s the third iteration, we have grown from previous successes to bring you an exciting and diverse program of events. As a platform, we bring together artists, theorists, collectors, wearers and appreciators from around the world for nine days of exhibitions, talks, performances, roving events and installations.

We welcome new audiences to come along and seek, play and question, and to get to know this lively and evolving field.
We would like to thank the Selection Committee, Nicholas Bastin, Caz Guiney and Marian Hosking, for their generosity and hard work in selecting this year’s events, and all of the artists and presenting partners who make up this year’s rich and exciting program. 

Co-Directors: Claire McArdle & Chloë Powell



Aims:
In coordinating an active program of events, Radiant Pavilion aims to support and celebrate the contemporary jewellery and object field by:
  • Creating a new platform for presentation, participation and investigation.
  • Connecting artists, theorists, collectors, wearers and appreciators from Australia and around the world.
  • Growing the audience by increasing visibility and awareness of the field.
  • Building sustainable interest in and appreciation for the art form.
  • Establishing a southern focal point for the global field.



Mentorships

One for a writer to be mentored by Dutch writer, curator and art historian Liesbeth den Besten, culminating in a piece of writing to be published in Metalsmith magazine. The other for a curator to be mentored by Australian curator Kate Rhodes to develop and present an exhibition during Radiant Pavilion.
