SHOWS AND TALES: ON JEWELRY EXHIBITION-MAKING. Ed. by Benjamin Lignel. Art Jewelry Forum, Mill Valley, 2015. 264 pp. with 124 ills. (104 col.) and 35 col. reference ills. 21 x 15 cm. ISBN 9780986422904 In English.
Publisher's description: The challenge of showing contemporary jewelry has given rise to a bubbling exhibition landscape, with amateurs and professionals playing musical chairs to a very D.I.Y. score. Artists mount exhibitions in their bedrooms. Museums invite amateurs to curate shows from their collection, and visitors to handle work. Collectors issue exhibition lists and detailed press releases. Students wearing jewelry parade the streets in white overalls. Given how extremely busy jewelry curators have been over the last 60 years, it is surprising that the variety of their approaches is so rarely acknowledged, or taken seriously, as is the extent to which curation transforms our perception: there has never been, thus far, a publication on exhibition-making with jewelry as its focal point.
