I’m heading on down to the Museo Nacional de Culturas Populares in Mexico in a little over a week for the opening of Amuleto Joya Viva: A Través Del Pacífico, otherwise known as Joyaviva: Live Jewellery Across the Pacific. I’ll be at the opening on the 9th as well as the forum on the 10th of April, where I’m going to be speaking about the C3 project in the context of the Melbourne jewellery scene at the time of its inception.
The exhibition has been touring a while now (since opening in Melbourne in 2012) and this is my first opportunity to see it since saying goodbye in Melbourne a day or so before I left there for the Pacific Northwest. Knowing that many of the charms that Jill and I fabricated ready for action had not yet been ‘implemented’ at that stage, I’m actually keen to see what our display looks like with our new images and feedback cards.
Of course our blog entries that documented our charms movements has been updated during this time, which I encourage you to check out – especially if this talk is all a mystery to you… (And there’s more info in previous posts around here too.)
See you in Mexico!
