In the 37th episode of Perceived Value, host Sarah Rachel Brown travels to NYC to visit the Museum of Arts and Design to see their current exhibition Non-Stick Nostalgia: Y2K Retrofuturism in Contemporary Jewelry. The exhibition, which is on display through July 21st, was curated by Kellie Riggs, a contemporary jeweler, writer, and woman known for getting things done.

Having previously connected during Munich Jewellery Week, the two woman sat down to discuss how Kellie came to be a guest curator for the MAD, what it means to be a curator with an institution of this size, and being a bad to student to get things done.

Thank you to the Museum of Arts and Design for giving Perceived Value a space to record and to Kellie Riggs for your kindness and hospitality.

Kellie Riggs (b.1986, Washington State) is a writer, critic and curator with a focus on Contemporary Jewelry. She received her BFA in Jewelry + Metalsmithing at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2011, and upon graduating received a Fulbright Grant to Italy, where she remained for seven years between Rome and Florence. She is an external editor at Dutch platform and magazine, Current Obsession, with whom she co-curated the exhibition CULT at the newly renamed Design Museum den Bosch in 2016. Kellie has recently relocated to New York City where she is curating for MAD while earning a Masters at New York University in Visual Art Administration.

About the Exhibition

The world teetered on the fulcrum of the year 2000. In the naïve glow of the early Internet, promises of the future were dreamt up, drawn out, and wildly aestheticized. Buoyant and iridescent, virtual and galactic, a new visual reality infiltrated the era, making the future tangible.

It was adolescents who absorbed this imagery. In their bedrooms after school they dialed up and logged on, curiously navigating the digital frontier. They began to piece together their personal identities, uncovering at a record pace who it was they might become.

In the twenty years since, those youthful explorations have taken an inward, self-prioritizing turn. Today, we grapple with image oversaturation, URL/IRL hybridity, device dependency, oversharing, a glittery kind of narcissism. Self-actualization has become open source; individuality, user-generated. Millennials have been raised cyborg. They know they are being viewed.

Contemporary jewelry—the personal expressiveness it stands for, and the combustion of tradition and technology bubbling in the core of its material DNA—is a uniquely telling manifestation of the psyche of our time. Non-Stick Nostalgia: Y2K Retrofuturism in Contemporary Jewelry highlights the work of twenty-nine international artists who explore the friction between the analog and the digital. The exhibition also includes a selection of pieces from MAD’s permanent collection that present different interpretations of futurism in jewelry. The featured contemporary pieces channel an aesthetic that is plastic and pixelated, vibrant and glossy, amorphous or chromed, echoing the post-nascent Internet culture that has evolved since the dawn of the twenty-first century. Like the cultivated digitized images of millennial cyber personas, jewelry has become hyper-real. Together, they are in idyllic sync.

Whether born from predication, nostalgia, or a combination of the two, the jewelry acts as a proposition: Could it allow us to become the perfect avatars—our maximal, fully realized selves?

Since 1956, MAD has collected and shown innovative studio and contemporary jewelry that lies at the intersection of art, craft, and design and challenges the boundaries of the medium. This exhibition exemplifies the Museum’s continued dedication to supporting emerging and established jewelry artists and new concepts that evolve the understanding of the field.

Non-Stick Nostalgia: Y2K Retrofuturism in Contemporary Jewelry is curated by Kellie Riggs with the support of MAD Assistant Manager of Curatorial Affairs Angelik Vizcarrondo-Laboy. It was secured for the Museum by Assistant Curator Barbara Paris Gifford. Design consultation by Misha Kahn.

Sponsors

Non-Stick Nostalgia: Y2K Retrofuturism in Contemporary Jewelry is supported by Creative Industries Fund NL, the Consulate General of the Netherlands as part of the Dutch Culture USA program, The Immersive Experiences Lab at HP, the Rotasa Fund, the Consulate General of Sweden, and The American-Scandinavian Foundation.

In the second bonus episode of Perceived Value, host Sarah Rachel Brown has been invited to the University of Arkansas at Littlerock as a visiting artist to give a lecture and teach a workshop.

In her workshop entitled, All Work Is Studio Work, Sarah covers the basics of podcasting and creating content.

The intention of the workshop was to give the students the students the opportunity and know-how to create their own podcast episode. In the end, it was decided that one day was not enough time for such an endeavor and instead, each participant chose the topic for their short, one-on-one interview with Sarah.

This bonus episode is the result of those interviews recorded on March 9th at the University of Arkansas at Littlerock.

Thank you to Ben Dory and the U of AR for inviting me as a visiting artist.

And a HUGE thank you to each of my students. You all showed up to the workshop open-minded and ready to participate and that meant the world to me.

In order in which their interviews are aired:

In the 35th episode of Perceive Value host Sarah Rachel Brown sits down with Philadelphia-based Blacksmith, Mike Rossi. In just a few short weeks, a symposium that Mike has been co-organizing for the past 2 years will be taking place at Bryn Athyn, PA. Frustrated with the lack of critical dialogue amongst their peers, Rossi, along with blacksmiths Warren Holtzman and John Rais, have decided to take action and bring their community together.

The two artists sat down to discuss Mike’s experience with the craft show hustle, and how a high schooler manages to save thousands for his college experience, and what it’s like putting together an event of this magnitude with no previous experience.

Looking Forward: A contemporary Blacksmithing and Metal Design Symposium will take place June 14th - 16th.

Mike Rossi is the principal of Rossi Metal Design based in Philadelphia,

specializing in unique architectural works and sculpture. Born in Pontiac, Michigan,

he has a BFA in Blacksmithing from Northern Michigan University, and an MFA in

Metalsmithing from Cranbrook Academy of Art. He has exhibited nationally and

internationally, currently in “Meta-Formation” at Appalachian Center for Craft and

in “40 under 40: the Next Generation of American Metal Artists” at the National

Ornamental Metals Museum in Memphis. He has taught at Bryn Athyn College,

Kalamazoo College, Ox-Bow School of Art, Penland School of Craft, and Haystack

Mountain School of Craft. He’s got 2 cats.



Registration is CLOSED but you can find information regarding the symposium at www.ironsymposium.com.

In the 34th episode of Perceived Value host Sarah Rachel Brown takes us back to the inaugural NYCJW which took place this past November and shares two interviews she recorded during her livecasts at the NYCJW HQ in SoHo. During her full day of recording, Sarah sat down with both Kendra Pariseault and Manuela Jimenez, the curatorial duo responsible for the exhibitions ICONS AT PLAY which took place at Brooklyn Metal Works in 2017 and #fail#success which took place during NYCJW18.

Sarah sat down with each co-curator to discuss how this partnership came to be, how they financially produce their exhibitions, and the value of taking on this role within one’s creative community.

Kendra Pariseault




Manuela Jimenez

About the curators:

Manuela Jimenez and Kendra Pariseault studied together at the Rhode Island School of Design and are both interested in exploring themes regarding social media and how it influences our work and our public versus private lives. They are curious about how exposing one’s process through social media outlets can inform an artist’s work. Throughout their careers, Manuela and Kendra have worked in both the commercial jewelry industry as well as in the fine arts world and have seen the spectrum of where these two fields connect and differ. Within this experience they have encountered the many ways in which the public perceives the process of the handmade versus the manufactured, the curiosity towards both processes, and the ways in which social media is now exposing these previous unknowns. Through #fail #success they would like to bring together artists who are using social media as a platform to celebrate their process of making.

In the 32nd episode of Perceived Value host Sarah Rachel Brown is in Baltimore, MD for the American Craft Council’s American Craft Show. This annual, juried show features artists from all over the country selling handmade jewelry, furniture, clothing, and décor. Thanks to the support from the Baltimore Jewelry Center, Sarah was able to make the trip to the show and set up her microphones right in the middle of the Baltimore Convention Center where the event was taking place.

Sarah was curious about the demographic of people who sell, attend and shop at the ACC show. Does everyone who attends plan on spending money or do many go just to browse? For those exhibiting, how are sales good or down from previous years? What’s the value in buying handmade? How much does a ticket cost to get in…

Thank you to the Baltimore Jewelry Center for sponsoring this event.

The episode features 8 interviews; two with exhibitors and 6 with attendees.

In the 31st episode of Perceived Value host Sarah Rachel Brown gives listeners insight to her recent presentation All Work Is Studio Work during the 2019 ECU Material Topics Symposium.

During the breakout session, Sarah and attendees discussed the importance of cultivating the next generation of writers, documentarians, and facilitators from all perspectives within the field of jewelry and metals. Sarah challenged attendees to think beyond the bench; just as important as the makers are the curators, editors, organizers, and educators. Each breakout session brainstormed topics within our field that those in attendance felt are not being adequately addressed, which included the lack of focus on business practices within academic programs and diversity within our field.

The sessions concluded with a series of short interviews between Sarah and artists who volunteered to be interviewed in front of the group. The intention behind these recordings were to demonstrate how to conduct an interview and to capture some of the energy and valuable discussions in the room that day.

HUGE thank you to all who attended the break out sessions, contributed to the discussions, and especially to the team behind the symposium for bringing Sarah and the Perceived Value Podcast to the 2019 State Of Adornment Material Topics Symposium!

The interviews are in the order in which they were recorded.

In the 30th episode of Perceived Value host Sarah Rachel Brown is in Greenville, North Carolina for the Eastern Carolina University Material Topics Symposium.  The annual symposium is a gathering of jewelers and metalsmiths ranging from hobbyists to professionals and Sarah has been invited as 2019 presenter.

This will be Sarah’s first experience presenting at this type of event and since being invited this past Spring, she has gained valuable insight as to what it means to be in this prestigious role.

During the symposium Sarah sat down with artist Michael Nashef who has been invited to present at the 2019 SNAG Conference in Chicago this coming May. This too will be his first experience as a conference or symposium presenter and so the two first-timers sat down to discuss what it’s like to prepare for this type of presentation, how much they’re getting paid or compensated, and what the value of this opportunity is beyond the paycheck.

Michael Nashef has earned his B.F.A. in Metals/Jewelry Design from Kendall College of Art and Design. Throughout his career, Michael Nashef has managed a jewelry store, worked as a CAD designer, and launched his fine jewelry company Intersecting Hearts, during which he taught as an adjunct teacher, where he found his passion for teaching and academia, that led him to pursue his M.F.A. in 3D studies from Bowling Green State University. Currently Michael is the area coordinator and lecturer at Towson University in Maryland.
