USE - Touring Exhibition

The touring exhibition, USE, is a partnership between the Jewellers and Metalsmiths Group of Australia (Queensland Chapter) Inc. and Museums & Galleries Queensland.

USE curator, Lisa Bryan-Brown, has thematically focused on the concept of tools and processes to explore the conceptual breadth and layers of meaning that operate within this premise for jewellery practitioners and metalsmiths. While contemporary practices are highly diverse in their forms and motivations, ‘tools’ are the common denominator that defines the field of creative practice that this exhibition celebrates.

USE is a touring exhibition in partnership between Jewellers and Metalsmiths Group of Australia (Queensland Chapter) Inc. and Museums & Galleries Queensland. This project is supported by the Visions regional touring program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to cultural material for all Australians; the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland; the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body; Liveworm Studio; and the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University.
