Joyaviva: Live Jewellery from across the Pacific

Joyaviva recaptures the magic as artists from around the Pacific present beautiful objects that recover the power of jewellery and its role in helping people navigate through their lives. Many of the artists came from areas affected by recent earthquakes in Chile and New Zealand.

Using innovative concepts, jewellers from Australia, New Zealand and Chile have designed charms that respond to our hopes and fears, ranging from the threat of earthquakes to a child’s school exam.

As a space where contemporary jewellery becomes a form of social design, the exhibition also welcomes visitors to contribute stories from their own experiences.

Joyaviva is supported by the Council on Australia Latin America Relations (COALAR), Arts Victoria and Creative New Zealand.

Floor talk with local and international artists about the exhibition will be held on 15 March from 5.30 to 6.30pm.
