Typeset is an exhibition exploring connections between jewelry and literature. Coinciding with ZOOM Milwaukee Symposium, this project will build on our previous collaborative exhibition on this theme, Wordsmith, by setting literary-minded art jewelry objects into the Special Collections at the Golda Meir Library at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.

Submissions are sought from jewelers who embrace text, story and history in their work. Selected works will be shown alongside literary objects drawn from the incredible catalogue of the Special Collections Library. By illuminating contexts, connections and modes of making, we aim to deepen our understanding of the places where jewelry and literature meet.

 

Exhibition dates: May 25 - July 11, 2016

Opening Reception: Friday, May 27 [7-9pm] 

University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee 

Golda Meir Library - Special Collections

Deadline: January 1, 2016
