We are happy that Co + Lab and some of the artists can come to PLATINA in Stockholm and show the exhibition including works from 20 international artists who have used jewellery as a medium. The curators have brought together women artists within the framework of gender-based women’s struggle in the art environment, artists who have not been reluctant to hard work, have continued their art practices in their own way, to have acquired high positions at art academies, to have organized international events, to start their own galleries or exhibition spaces and much more.
This exhibition is named after the Declaration of Sentimentsat the Seneca Falls Congress, which was held in 1848 under the leadership of Elizabeth Cady Stanton. The Declaration was signed by 100 men and women, and this was the first organized women’s rights record in history and advocacy for equal rights for women.

I obviously am not able to go (I know, borders open here on Thursday, it just happens to also be the day I move house and studio), so I asked the wonderful Sofia to use my artist fee from the Swedish Govt to help the show – and she said she would use it to help another artist get there for the opening. I hope it’s a blast, I wish I could see it in person after all the ups and downs we’ve shared so instead I’ll be ogling my Insta timeline to catch a glimpse!
