Uneasy Beauty: Discomfort in Contemporary Adornment

October 6, 2018 – April 21, 2019

Fuller Craft Museum
455 Oak Street
Brockton, Mass. 

This exhibition brings together 75 examples of contemporary jewelry and costume that demonstrate the immense power of adornment to impact us physically, emotionally, and intellectually. Showcasing wearable work in various media from regional and national artists, the exhibition will explore the outer limits of comfort through works that constrict body movement, irritate the skin, make extreme demands, or touch upon sensitive cultural nerves.

This exhibition is curated by Suzanne Ramljak, an art historian, writer, curator, and former editor of Metalsmith magazine.
