“From the Outside Out”  Kiff Slemmons

Reflecting on the last 50 years of her work, jeweler and advocate Kiff Slemmons examines jewelry’s place in culture—both past and present— including its capacity for meaning and metaphor, its reflection of identity, its potential to offer protection, and its release from convention. Presented in conjunction with the current installation American Jewelry: The Susan Grant  Lewin Collection at the Yale University  Art Gallery. Generously sponsored by the Oswaldo Rodriguez Roque Memorial Lectureship Fund.

Kiff Slemmons, Big Between, Chicago, 2020–21. Silver, wood, paper, graphite, horsehair, and mixed media.
