The Goldsmiths’ Company is delighted to sponsor Silver Speaks at the V&A, an 11-month extravaganza (8 March 2016 - 2 July 2017) celebrating the UK’s leading silversmiths today.
The Goldsmiths’ Company is delighted to sponsor Silver Speaks, a celebration of the UK’s leading silversmiths today. Organised by Contemporary British Silversmiths, the association for design-based contemporary silver, the exciting series of events focuses on the precious metal’s diverse techniques and applications. Silver Speaks also explores commissioning silver works to enhance contemporary life.
The Silver Speaks: Idea to Object exhibition (8 March 2016 - 2 July 2017) and the Silver Speaks Symposium (date TBC) – both held at the V&A - lie at the heart of the programme. Whilst the exhibition reflects the creative process behind a work of silver – from inspirations, sketches, models, material experimentation and construction, through to the finished object itself – the symposium delves into the role of silver in contemporary life.
Silver Speaks is in Room 66 at the V&A, London: 8 March 2016 – 2 July 2017
