Island Welcome is a group exhibition exploring contemporary jewellery as a gesture of greeting. Inspired by the welcome garlands found in many traditional island cultures sixteen contemporary jewellers have each contributed a neckpiece/lei/garland interpreting the theme of welcome in response to current Australian immigration and refugee policy. Come along to this evening panel dicussion and hear the South Australian artists share insights about their artworks and the exhibition.
Island Welcome has been curated by Belinda Newick and is hosted by the Migration Museum. The exhibition is part of the South Australian Living Artists Festival (SALA) 2019. The exhibition runs from 3 Aug – 29 Sep 2019.
