Join us for a panel discussion with jeweller Octavia Cook and some of the makers behind the jewellery display systems commissioned for Cook & Company, a new exhibition opening 6pm, Friday 17 March.

Cook & Company draws on the nature of jewellery as both a distinctly public and private art form. The largest survey of work by leading Aotearoa jeweller Octavia Cook, this exhibition expands on her-long-held interest in the private life of jewellery – how it is worn, housed and collected by its users.

For Cook & Company, the artist is joined by six practitioners spanning craft, design and architecture, each commissioned by the artist to design a one-of-a-kind storage system for jewellery. They are:

Gerard Dombroski Turumeke Harrington Steven Junil Park Nicholas Stevens & Deborah Smith Isobel Thom Anna Wallis

This panel discussion will take place on the first day of Cook & Company. Come get introduced to the work and ideas behind the exhibition, and hear insights direct from the makers.
