‘Outside the Box’ builds a map of design in North America.
This third annual travelling exhibition features the work of over 70 designers from 11 cities across Canada and the U.S. Curated by local correspondents, each Bankers box houses a collection of thoughtfully designed objects, reflecting the particular resources and makers of that area.
Great design resists categorization, leaning over the boundaries between design, craft, and fine art. This micro-exhibition celebrates the work of jewellers in Halifax who do just that — expanding the field of jewellery to include tools, treasures, and wearable sculpture.
These kinetic objects have hidden features, from a locket that displays an image in 3D, to a gold ring that will turn the wearer’s finger green. Encouraging play through the use of moving parts and unconventional materials, these objects close the gap between jewellery and fine art.
