Private tour of "Multiple Exposures: Jewelry and Photography"

June 19, 24, 28,  2014

Location: Museum of Arts and Design, New York City

The ASJH is pleased to offer members a private, docent-led tour of the celebrated Multiple Exposures: Jewelry and Photography exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design. More than 80 renowned artists from over 20 countries are represented including Gijs Bakker, Wafaa Bilal, Jordan Doner, Mari Ishikawa, Jiro Kamata, Sooyeon Kim, Iris Nieuwenburg, Kara Ross, Gabriela Sanchez, Bernhard Schobinger, Bettina Speckner, Joyce Scott, Kiff Slemmons, Andy Warhol and Noa Zilberman. 

Organized by MAD's Curator of Jewelry and ASJH Board member Ursula Neuman, this unusual and intriguing exhibition utilizes the confluence of jewelry and photography. Some pieces are more traditional - such as "eye" portraits from centuries past- and others are innovative and thought provoking, with the photograph creating the jewel. Please join us for one of our ASJH member docent-led tours in June.
