Fashioning Silver – Past and Present, with Tessa Murdoch, Eric Turner, Juliette Bigley and Miriam Hanid
Tessa Murdoch, Head of Metalwork at the Victoria and Albert Museum, introduces a selection of silver from the national collection, from the medieval to the present day. She discusses its potential to inspire contemporary British silversmiths with Juliette Bigley and Miriam Hanid, whose work has recently been acquired by the museum, and Eric Turner, curator of 20th-century and contemporary metalwork.
Following the talk, guests are encouraged to accompany the speakers to the Whiteley Silver Galleries.
This event at the Victoria and Albert Museum is one of a series arranged with the support of the Silver Society with experts revealing aspects from the point of view of the patron, curator, collector and maker. You may also be interested in these talks being held at the Wallace Collection:
