Telling Tales: Narratives in Contemporary Metal and Jewelry Art
Telling Tales: Narratives in Contemporary Metal and Jewelry Art presents new works by 22 artists who work primarily in metals, silversmithing, or conceptual art jewelry. Participating artists responded to a curatorial call for artistic interpretations of the stories and fables that shaped and influenced them. The exhibition is on view at the Art House gallery, Mevasseret Zion, from 31 January — 28 February 2014.
What happens when artists translate the world’s oldest tales into works of art? The exhibition explores the role of fairy tales, legends, myths, and fables in shaping cultural mores and values, and the influence these time-honored narratives — ranging from the fantastical to the pedagogical to the sternly moralistic — have made on our contemporary existence.
Telling Tales opening reception will be held at 13:00 on 31 January 2014. Tours led by the curators and talks delivered by participating artists will be held in conjunction with the exhibition. For more information, please contact INTER ALIA projects or the Art House at +972 (52) 6808606.
