Once upon a time...


Dates: 3-25 August

Opening: Thursday 2 August, 6-8pm

Artist: Various Artists

A collaborative exhibition between students and staff from the jewellery studios of Sydney College of the Arts and the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing.


Jewellery has the potential to communicate or tell a story, most commonly about the wearer or maker but inherently it carries information about the time and culture in which it was produced. Once upon a time … focuses on jewellery as a point of exchange or communication.

The works in this exhibition consider the cultural context of jewellery and the ability for jewellery to tell stories about the maker and their environment.
