EXPOSED: Contemporary Jewelers and the Photograph
Lauren Kalman and Bettina Speckner participate in panel discussion at Museum of Art And Design in conjunction with the exhibition, Multiple Exposures.

Since the late 1830s, photographs have been integrated into jewelry as tokens of memory, devotion, or mourning. Contemporary photo-based jewelry extends these traditional functions and forms, while enlisting new technologies and techniques to engage a great variety of personal and social concerns. Organized by MAD Jewelry Curator Ursula Ilse-Neuman in collaboration with Suzanne Ramljak, editor ofMetalsmith magazine, this panel discussion will address historical precedents for today’s photo jewelry and explore the wide range of cutting-edge approaches in both digital-image technology and innovative jewelry making. Through diverse combinations of these two creative practices, contemporary jewelers are expanding jewelry’s role as a carrier of cultural meaning as well as an agent of intervention on the human body.

Multiple Exposures: Jewelry and Photography
Museum of Arts And Design, New York

Including gallery artists Bettina Speckner and Lauren Kalman, this is the first museum exhibition to explore how contemporary jewelry artists transform and add new meaning to the pervasive images of this digital age. Drawing inspiration from historic daguerreotypes to manipulated digital images, international jewelry artists explore changing views of beauty and the human body; examine social, political, and cultural issues; probe perceptions of memory and desire; and question the broader relation of jewelry to society and personal identity, issues central to the contemporary experience.
