O3 Gallery's forthcoming exhibition Donning Oxford prompts its artists and audience alike to re-evaluate relationships with the city and to explore and stretch the notions of how or what it is to 'don' Oxford. The exhibition's curators Tamsin Leighton-Boyce, Natalie Smith and Fliss Quick have selected artists for this exhibition on the grounds of their broad approach to jewellery making and the exhibition promises interpretations and responses to this theme in varied and surprising ways.
Often described as âstudio' or âart' jewellers, the artists exhibiting at Donning Oxford encompass a wide range of methodologies from conceptual to material exploration. These artists use âjewellery' as a medium or subject within their practice to question assumptions about jewellery itself and to raise questions and communicate thoughts about the world around us. Private view: Friday 1st June 2012
