This event has ended.

The Museum of Arts and Design presents the first comprehensive overview of contemporary art jewelry from Latin America to be seen in the United States. The exhibition was organized by Otro Diseño Foundation for Cultural Cooperation and Development, and curated by Valeria Vallarta Siemelink. Think Again showcases more than eighty works by over fifty Latin American jewelry artists/designers.

"Think Again: Latin American Jewelry" encompasses a passion for jewelry making in South America, Mexico, and the Caribbean Islands where contemporary jewelry artists are inspired by their own cultural and artistic environment while reflecting the rapidly expanding international community of avant-garde artists. In their jewelry making, each artist/designer in the exhibition explores fresh ideas, innovative techniques and non-traditional materials. The contemporary works will be shown in context with a group of historical works primarily from Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Mexico and Cuba, to further enhance the visitor's understanding and viewing experience.
