The Current Obsession Social Club is a series of conversations that happen internationally through a variety of formal and informal events to create and highlight current dialogue between jewelers. Current Obsession is a contemporary jewelry platform conducting a range of educational and curatorial projects, generating opportunities for designers and initiating cross-disciplinary collaboration. Join us for a lively discussion around the history of jewelry and how it functions within a contemporary theoretical framework in conjunction with the opening of the exhibition of “Past Is Present: Revival Jewelry.”
