Symposium programmedby Dr Elizabeth Goring

A special symposium to coincide with the opening of Sculpture to Wear, the first major exhibition in the UK of the work of the exceptional jewellery artist Marjorie Schick. Her work was first seen in the UK in 1982. It proved to have strong resonances for those working at the cutting edge of jewellery in Europe where, although it sprang independently from quite different roots, it exactly encapsulated the spirit of the moment. Key speakers with contemporary knowledge of this inspirational period for jewellery will review its impact and continuing legacy. The day will conclude with a panel discussion.
