Transplantation: Exhibition

Transplantation was a touring exhibition curated by Professor Norman Cherry in conjunction with the Hub: National Centre for Craft & Design and the University of Lincoln. The exhibition focussed on contemporary narrative jewellery, created by a group of artists based in either Britain or Australia, which explored a sense of place and cultural identity through the theme of 'Transplantation'. Each artist examined their individual cultural identity, as a consequence of their own personal and family experiences. An illustrated catalogue containing contextual essays can be purchased by contacting the exhibition venues.

Artists: Jivan Astfalck, Roseanne Bartley, Nicholas Bastin, Norman Cherry, Lin Cheung, Jack Cunningham, Anna Davern, Joung-Mee Do, Jo Pond, Sheridan Kennedy, Bridie Lander, Laura Potter
