Creative communication at its finest, jewelry speaks volumes of both creator and wearer. Within the MMFA Design Lab, Remarkable Contemporary Jewellery comprises a closely curated selection of 30 Quebec and international artists. While materials and process have evolved; "some of the artists use traditional materials like gold, silver and precious stones and explore age-old surface treatment, forming and stamping techniques, their artistry remains an act of invention, the expression of a constantly evolving tradition" [source]. With multiple jewelry exhibits ongoing, Remarkable Contemporary Jewellery is set in a cozy space where one can truly appreciate the creativity of multiple artists. If you happen to be in Montreal, the exhibit will be on view until November 30th. Read more about the exhibit here.
