artisan’s past touring exhibitions

The Antipodean Steampunk Show

This fantastical exhibition, the first major Steampunk exhibition in the country, showcases handcrafted Australian Steampunk sculpture, photography, fashion, lighting, illustration, jewellery and communication devices. Steampunk merges a 19th century aesthetic with scientific invention, salvage, and new technology. Artisan has partnered with the Queensland Maritime Museum to include the old nautical, aeronautical and navigational equipment that inspired the style.

Tinker Tailor Soilder Sailor

To celebrate the centenary of International Women’s Day in 2011,
artisan invited eminent jeweller and history-enthusiast, Dr Dorothy Erickson, to select 100 Australian women with notable professional achievements. artisan then selected 100 of Australia’s finest women jewellers, ranging from emerging to established, to create a brooch inspired by one of these stories.

The outcome was truly astonishing with brooches of every imaginable form, technique, and concept. Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor showcases a superb collection of contemporary jewellery that celebrates the brilliance and ingenuity of great Australian women. It generates pride for the milestones set by the women of the past and provides inspiration for the women of the future.
