Click here to view our interactive online catalogue for Schmuck/Schmock (11-16 March 2019)! (give it a sec…. it can take a while to load).

Munich’s loss is Melbourne’s gain!

Featuring 30 artists, each with their own bold take on the problem we set before them.


(where Schmuck = jewellery, and Schmock = the ring of skin removed from the penis by circumcision).

Confused? So were we at first, but one by one, our artists have set the scene, described the problem, and even offered solutions!

Featuring works of, in and about jewellery from an array of artists across the globe:

Amanda BartlettAmanda Bergman, Amelia ToelkeAnna Butwell,  Anna Davern,  Áurea PragaCaroline ThomasGabriella Goldsmith,  Hurricane Luke, Ikaros Moushouttas IasonIsabelle Azais, Joshua KoskerKay Guo,  Kirsten Fredericks, Lital Mendel,  Macarena BernalMarie-Hélèn BélengerMarilena Karagkiozi,  Melis Agabigum & Rachel Andrea DavisMiriam ArentzNelly Van Oost, Peter DeckersRachael ColleySophie BeerVanessa White,  Veresa EyblVivienne Varay, Xun Liu, and Yojae Lee

  • Is the work Schmuck? Or more Schmock?
  • Is this a debate between highbrow and lowbrow?
  • Is it a reference to art crafted from detritus?

It’s all this and more! An echo, a critique, an alternative, and a bloody good show.

In timely alignment with the International festival of Schmuck 2019 in Munich, but right here in Australia (because we have terrible FOMO) @tempcontemp and @Northcity4 are hosting our own international Schmuckfest!

Come join us at the opening party on the 15th, or drop into the gallery between 11am-4pm Monday to Saturday (11-16 March) of our special Schmuckweek!
