Call: Metalsmith Exhibition in Print 2012

The 2012 Metalsmith Exhibition in Print  is holding a call for related work. The 2012 theme is “Gothic Jewelry,” with guest curator, Valerie Steele. Steele is the Director and Chief Curator at the Museum at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.  Often quoted in the media, she’s been the subject of profiles in Forbes: “Fashion Professor,” and in the New York Times, “High-Heeled Historian,” as well as listed in the New York Daily News’ “Fashion’s 50 Most Powerful.”


“Gothic” is an epithet with a strange history – evoking images of death, destruction, and decay. From its origins in the 18th-century literature of terror to its contemporary manifestations in art, cinema and design, the gothic is associated with the powers of horror and the erotic macabre. Medieval ecclesiastical design, the Victorian cult of mourning, and the gothic punk subculture are other reference points. The late Alexander McQueen often explored gothic themes in his work, in collaboration with talented jewelers. The 2012 Exhibition in Print will explore contemporary gothic jewelry. Curator Valerie Steele invites suggestions and nominations related to the theme of the gothic. Please contact her at <Valerie_Steele@fitnyc.edu>.


EXTENDED Deadline: February 25, 2012.
