Talking Practice Ferrocity

FERROcity | A contemporary exhibition of iron in the city. Vittoria Street Gallery is delighted to present FERROcity an exhibition of jewellery and objects which celebrates Iron in the City and has been co-curated by Visiting Professor, Elizabeth Turrell, and Professor Stephen Bottomley at the School of Jewellery, Birmingham City University. On show during April 2019, this exhibition brings together fascinating artistic responses to the theme of iron by twenty-two contemporary makers, including works by academic staff from Birmingham’s eminent School of Jewellery and invited international artists. Please join us for a very special Talking Practice, featuring fast and furious lightning talks by a range of exhibiting artists. 6-6.30pm | Wednesday 10 April 2019 | Lecture Theatre | School of Jewellery Iron is a material that has become synonymous with human life and civilisation and as such has become embedded in both our language and understanding of the world.

The evening's lightning talks will introduce the breadth of approaches to this fascinating but familiar material, and allow us to glimpse at the artists’ intepretations of iron as catalyst, material, and fundamental element of life, culminating in contemporary metalwork and jewellery ranging from steel vessels to recycled iron nail jewellery. After the talks, you are very welcome to join the artists and curators for a glass of wine (or soft drink) and a chat in the Vittoria Street Gallery.
