Two pieces from my Key series and two necklaces from my White Collar series were curated by Garth Clark into Metalsmith Magazine's Exhibition in Print 2010: Neo-Palatial
Garth Clark is the guest curator of Metalsmith's
special annual Exhibition in Print
this year. The theme of this issue, chosen by Clark, is Neo-Palatial: Objects of Virtue and Vice
. The issue will showcase contemporary objects de virtue, extravagant works that challenge the limitations of technique, scale, and sometimes good taste. Designed to take center stage, this work is brash, exaggerated and virtuosic in their use of metals.Neo-Palatial
will feature work by twenty-one contemporary artists. Featured artists include Tim Horn, Jeff Koons, Michele Oka Doner, Shana Astrachan, emiko oye, Tomek Ogrodowski, Marie Pendaries, Anika Smulovitz, and Amelia Toekle.
Garth Clark is a renowned curator, critic, dealer and historian. One of craft's most influential intellectuals, Clark has edited and contributed to more than fifty books, and is author of numerous essays and articles. He has also curated many significant exhibitions at museums around the world.
Work featured in the Exhibition in Print
will be exhibited at The Metal Museum, Memphis, TN, in November and December 2010. Clark will speak about the work as one of SNAG's three lectures in the Salon Series at SOFA Chicago, and his essay from the Exhibition in Print
will be reprinted in the SOFA catalogue. http://www.snagmetalsmith.org/Publicatio
