For the Auckland edition of the fifth HANDSHAKE series, HANDSHAKE 5: in site brings together ten jewellers from across Aotearoa for an exhibition that explores the potential of jewellery in large-scale spaces. While jewellers commonly dress the body as an intimate, typically small-scale process, for this exhibition the artists work with the dynamic architectural spaces of Te Uru’s purpose-built gallery as a springboard for ideas - testing the spatial qualities of jewellery; how it interacts within in its own surroundings, affects our movements through a room and involves us in contemporary dialogue.
7 December 2019 – 16 February 2020
Exhibition opening: Saturday 7 December, 4pm
Theo Schoon (1915–85) is a controversial figure. He was born in Java to Dutch parents, but educated back in the Netherlands at the Rotterdam Academy of Fine Arts. He arrived in Aotearoa New Zealand in 1939, where he would become a catalyst for modernism. The first comprehensive exhibition of Schoon’s art in decades, Split Level View Finder rethinks his legacy for 21st–century Aotearoa.
