What Is and What’s to Come speaks to the changing nature of jewellery and metals as a discipline, and how these nuances are reflected within the medium through past and present works from the Alberta University of the Arts’ Jewellery & Metals program. This survey of works from recent alumni and current students highlights the potential of jewellery and metals, and the medium’s momentum moving forward.

The full spectrum of work encourages curiosity and exploration into the many avenues of installation and display of jewellery. Current AUArts students created work specifically for presentation on the body, in contrast to alumni work, which utilizes traditional methods of display. Through these juxtapositions, the exhibition highlights the evolving culture of AUArts, specifically the Jewellery and Metals Department. With the inclusion of present and forward-thinking work, What Is and What’s to Come is a testament to the artistic jewellery and craft community that AUArts continually produces, while showcasing possible future directions of the discipline.
