We are delighted to hear that Arts Foundation Fellow in 2001 for Jewellery Design Lin Cheung, has won the Françoise van den Bosch Award for Jewellery.
Lin will be presented the award on 10 November, along side a symposium entitled ‘The Relevance of Crafts’ the Stedelijk Museum.
“The symposium considers the expressiveness of traditional techniques and materials, such as those we encounter in ceramics, jewelry and other artistic expressions that largely fall within the domestic domain and are considered applied art.
The Relevance of Crafts explores the direct relationship of both makers and consumers to materials and objects, and the role they play in everyday life.”
The library of the Stedelijk Museum will feature Lin Cheung’s installation “Jewellery Library” (2007-present) from November 10.
