The Association for Contemporary Jewellery

is devoted to the promotion, representation, understanding and development of contemporary jewellery in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Founded as a membership association in 1997 and registered as a Limited Company in 2006, it recognises a need to foster discussion, debate and critical review and interaction amongst its members. To this end we organise conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and an annual general meeting for our members. Our regular newsletter, findings, features reviews, information, comment, book offers and discounts and is of benefit to both our members and the wider public. We also produce a monthly e-bulletin featuring news and opportunities.

We welcome as members practising jewellers, associated designers and crafts people, educators, students, gallery owners and retailers, museum curators, critics and collectors - indeed, anyone with an interest in contemporary jewellery.

Ezra Satok-Wolman presents at Hannah Gallery by Klimt02 a multi-media project and exhibition that looks towards the colonization of Mars, and the Ship of Fools who will colonize it. Satok-Wolman has designed a new collection of jewellery, rooted in space-age principles and technology, intended to adorn the AI (Artificial Intelligence) sex robots that will serve as astronaut companions in his dystopian vision of the future. Using video, photography, and a physical installation, the exhibition provides viewers with a glimpse of what life for humans and robots may one day be like on the Red Planet.
 
Exhibition dates: 13.06 - 12.07.2019
Opening day: June 13th from 19:30 h.
You are invited!

Being Human
 
Opening Thursday 5 September | New Permanent Gallery
 
Replacing Medicine Now, our brand new permanent gallery will explore trust, identity and health in a changing world, and what it means to be human in the 21st century.
 
Divided into four sections, Genetics, Minds & Bodies, Infection, and Climate Breakdown, the new display will present around 50 artworks and objects that reflect our hopes and fears about new forms of medical knowledge, and our changing relationships with ourselves, each other and the world.
