2020 Visions


2020 Visions: Celebrating twenty years of the ACJ

Celebrating twenty years of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery (ACJ), 20:20 Visions shows the best of contemporary jewellery and conveys progression in design and techniques over the last twenty years.

To mark the anniversary, ACJ has invited twenty of its most prominent and innovative members to exhibit work from 1997 alongside a new piece. The exhibition also features a number of works from members selected by a panel of advisors. ACJ currently has 500 members so this exhibition promises much in terms of range of materials, new technologies, techniques and methods of construction.

The Selection Panel: Kath Libbert, John Moore, Peter Taylor & Rebecca van Rooijen.
