12 Mar – 04 Apr 2020
In March 2020 The National was set to present at FRAME, a contemporary jewellery art fair that sits alongside the prestigious SCHMUCK exhibition, during the Internationale Handwerksmesse in Munich. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the fair was cancelled. However, the exhibition was able to be presented in a new format, here at home in Christchurch.
The selection for FRAME 2020 was aimed at presenting the work of fourteen nationally and internationally recognised jewellers from New Zealand – all from The National’s stable of artists – offering insight into the contemporary themes that are shaping local practice, and building on the growing presence of New Zealand jewellery at Munich Jewellery Week over the last decade.
Artists include: Kelly McDonald, Moniek Schrijer, Lisa Walker, Craig McIntosh, Karl Fritsch, Vanessa Arthur, Warwick Freeman, Jane Dodd, Shelley Norton, Debbie Adamson, Octavia Cook, Areta Wilkinson, Becky Bliss, Elfi Spiewack.
