Art Break | Mingei International Museum

Join nationally-recognized artist and professor Kerianne Quick for an overview of the historical and cultural function of jewelry as objects of commemoration, memoriam, and trophy. Featuring works from the La Frontera exhibition, this conversation will explore how materials contain information, and how humans use jewelry as a cultural tool, object of wonder, and touchstone for memories.

Kerianne Quick is a nationally recognized artist, Associate Professor of Jewelry and Metalwork at San Diego State University, and co-founder of Secret Identity Projects and Craft Desert. Highlights from their exhibition record include Craft in America Gallery (Los Angeles), the Museum of Art and Design (NYC), Museo Franz Mayer (CDMX), the National Museum for Women in the Arts (D.C.), and Salon del Mobile (Milan). Their work is included in the collections of the LACMA, MFA Houston, and the Netherlands Design Museum (Stedelijk). Quick is currently researching migration and the conveyance of objects as it relates to memory, belonging, and longing.
