ManJewellery 2011

ManJewellery was the second in Part B’s series of one-day-only jewellery ‘happenings’.

On the 20th of November 2011, the research jewellery group Part B held an exhibition of jewellery for men, displayed on live models, in a setting where men are often seen to congregate. An inner city bar!

The above, and following photographs document the works as worn on the day.

If you make it to the bottom you'll also see a few shots of the event, and of course, the artists.

Thanks for coming along to see our show!

About Part B

Founded in 2009, the Part B collective meets monthly in galleries in and around Melbourne to discuss jewellery and related art exhibitions. Meeting information is distributed to an email list of local jewellers, comprised of students through to established artists. To date around 40 artists have attended at least one meet. The two happenings held over the last two years have drawn their participants from those attendees, as a minimum of a single attendance is a condition of participation.

These jewellery happenings are designed to challenge jewellers and audiences alike, exploring and deconstructing traditional customs of jewellery display in galleries, and the way that this style of presentation influences the viewer's engagement and interaction with jewellery. To participate in this interrogation, artists must have an attendant understanding of current jewellery concerns, in order to question or provoke them in a meaningful way.

With the current popularity of social media and declining local membership of professional bodies (witness the closing of the local Jewellers and Metalsmiths Group of Australia branch), it is interesting that a fledgling group is quietly flourishing, especially given its focus on firsthand experience of exhibited works and face-to-face communication.

As someone that loves to design men's jewelry, this is fun to see.

Comment by Montserrat Lacomba on January 24, 2012 at 4:13pm

Good show!

And I can imagine a similar project in Barcelona but not in Madrid!

Comment by The Justified Sinner on January 24, 2012 at 4:05pm

Edinburgh is cosmopolitan and creative; glasgow is parochial and anti-creative. 

You can be beaten up for wearing natural fibres or bright colours in glasgow. (Not joking.)

Comment by Brigitte Martin on January 24, 2012 at 4:03pm
Dauvit, same question for you: Why in Edinburgh but not in Glasgow?

Anyone else here saying that about their location/state? Why?

PS: it would be great if you wanted to spearhead something similar in Scotland. It is such a fun project, I definitely could see this repeated in other cities/countries easily.
Comment by The Justified Sinner on January 24, 2012 at 3:54pm

Good question, Brigitte! I can imagine a similar project in Edinburgh (probably not glasgow) looking very similar.

Comment by Brigitte Martin on January 24, 2012 at 3:52pm
I keep reading your comments that this show is "so metro" and "so Melbourne". Naturally, sitting in the US myself, I am wondering what this means? What makes this show so 'typical' and if there is something such as 'typical Melbourne style' then how does it differ from 'typical Sidney style'?
Thanks!
Comment by Ann Davis on January 24, 2012 at 3:39pm

This is fun!!!  soooo metro!!!!! Great show!!!

Comment by Kevin Murray on January 24, 2012 at 2:02am

Very Melbourne!
