A Dual Effort: The Curatorial Team Behind #fail#success

In the 34th episode of Perceived Value host Sarah Rachel Brown takes us back to the inaugural NYCJW which took place this past November and shares two interviews she recorded during her livecasts at the NYCJW HQ in SoHo. During her full day of recording, Sarah sat down with both Kendra Pariseault and Manuela Jimenez, the curatorial duo responsible for the exhibitions ICONS AT PLAY which took place at Brooklyn Metal Works in 2017 and #fail#success which took place during NYCJW18.

Sarah sat down with each co-curator to discuss how this partnership came to be, how they financially produce their exhibitions, and the value of taking on this role within one’s creative community.

A Couple of First-Timers: ECU Symposium with Michael Nashef

In the 30th episode of Perceived Value host Sarah Rachel Brown is in Greenville, North Carolina for the Eastern Carolina University Material Topics Symposium.  The annual symposium is a gathering of jewelers and metalsmiths ranging from hobbyists to professionals and Sarah has been invited as 2019 presenter.

This will be Sarah’s first experience presenting at this type of event and since being invited this past Spring, she has gained valuable insight as to what it means to be in this prestigious role.

 During the symposium she sat down with artist Michael Nashef who has been invited to present at the 2019 SNAG Conference in Chicago this May. This too will be his first experience as a conference or symposium presenter and so the two first-timers sat down to discuss what it’s like to prepare for this type of presentation, how much they’re getting paid or compensated, and what the value of this opportunity is beyond the paycheck.

International Relations: Mallory Weston

In the ninth episode of Perceived Value host Sarah Rachel Brown sits down with Philadelphia-based contemporary jeweler and metalsmith Mallory Weston. The two women pop a bottle of champagne and discuss what sparked Mallory's interest in metals, the joys of working at a bowling alley, and how Ms. Weston came to be involved in the international art jewelry community.
