Every year the Vittoria Street Gallery at the School of Jewellery hosts an exhibition showcasing the work of the current cohort of Artists in Residence (AiRs). In 2019 the Artists in Residence exhibition, Flux, will be open to the public on weekdays between the 29th of April and the 10th of May with a launch event on the evening of Thursday the 2nd of May, 6-8pm. Here you’ll be able to enjoy a glass of wine or a soft drink, view the show and speak to the artists.
Also that evening (5-6pm) there is a Talking Practice event in the lecture theatre to celebrate the achievements of Peter Taylor: an alumnus of the School of Jewellery who is being recognised with the award of an Honorary Doctorate in July 2019.

Flux, in jewellery terms, is commonly understood as the substance used in soldering and brazing processes. It is also an appropriate term defining the state of the creative process when ideas seem to be in a state of changeability or fluidity.
According to the Oxford English dictionary it is also defined as “the action or process of flowing or flowing out”. As recent graduates, some of our Artists in Residence are in the process of flowing out into their professional worlds. They are also conduits for the flow of experience back to our students.
