Building on the success of The Rise of Sneaker Culture and Heath Ledger: A Life in Pictures, AGWA presents the next exhibition in its Culture Juice program: Bling and Beyond!


A wild and intriguing celebration of the art, design and craft of jewellery, AGWA is unlocking the vaults to showcase the best, the bizarre and the sophisticated jewels in its historical, contemporary and Indigenous collections. Moving from bold and captivating wearable art to quiet and subtle, almost private, personal interventions, the show will change how you think about what jewellery is and can be.
