‘The Year Was 2006’
An exhibition of 100 jewellery pieces made in 2006
19th – 30th June 2012
CELEBRATION DRINKS Saturday 23rd June 2012 – 4-6pm
2006. It was a common year that started on a Sunday. John Howard was PM, the Yellow Wiggle retired for health reasons, Pluto was no longer classified as a planet and the Global Financial Crisis was still 2 years away from being purely known as the GFC. It is often bandied about that art is a reflection of our society; intrigued, we set out to find what 2006 might have looked like in terms of contemporary jewellery.
100 Jewellers from across the globe have been invited to present one piece of jewellery they made 6 years ago. For some, this may have been their first year of study, for others the very beginning of their professional careers, or perhaps makers just settling into their stride. Presented as a salon hang, this exhibition will showcase an incredibly diverse array of jewellery and will give an overall snapshot of what these jewellers were thinking, making and the materials they were using all those years ago in 2006.
