This exhibition will consist of a unique body of work created by contemporary American and European metalsmiths whose work considers the body in relation to its physical and intellectual environment. Work by featured artists represent multiple perspectives on reinterpreting jewelry, functional objects and constructed spaces, exploring the conceptual ranges of these forms and locations. Artists included are: Janine Antoni, Cornelia Parker, Gijs Bakker, Joan Parcher, Lauren Fensterstock, Myra Mimlitsch-Gray, Gerd Rothman, Otto Künzli and Melanie Bilenker. SFMC+D has included Bay Area artists, Nick Dong and Emiko Oye, who will create conceptual and interactive installations respectively, to run concurrently in our galleries and to provide an alternative experience for the viewer, as well as DIY activities for visitors. Nick Dong’s installation will be called The Enlightenment Room, and Emiko Oye will create our MakeArt gallery where visitors can make their own jewelry and objects inspired by both The Thinking Body and The Enlightenment Room.
