The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is holding a symposium on Saturday Oct. 1 at 10 a.m. that will focus on contemporary jewelry.
The symposium coincides with the opening of “Beyond Bling: Jewelry From the Lois Boardman Collection” and includes a panel discussion with speakers exploring contemporary jewelry through design, film and ethnography. Dutch jeweler and industrial designer Gijs Bakker will give the keynote speech.
Additionally, the Craft and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM) will host the “Beyond Bling Pop-Up Shop” from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 5814 Wilshire Blvd.
LACMA’s “Beyond Bling” exhibit showcases an assemblage of contemporary studio jewelry from the United States, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. The exhibition, which features 50 works from a gift of over 300 pieces from collector Boardman, explores the use of nontraditional materials and techniques.
It also examines ways jewelry can communicate personal or political messages, and the medium’s potential to shock and delight.
The collection is the first of its kind featured in a museum on the West Coast.
LACMA is located at 5905 Wilshire Blvd. For information, call (323)857-6000, or visit www.lacma.org.
