The Value Of Diversity: The Co-Curators of UNDEREXPOSED

In the 40th episode of Perceived Value, host Sarah Rachel Brown is in Chicago, IL set up with her microphones at Adornment + Theory, a curated art jewelry and design studio. Chicago is teeming with artists, jewelers, and metalsmiths in town for the Society of North American Goldsmiths annual conference and in conjunction, Perceived Value has partnered with Adornment + Theory for this special episode.

Owner Vivianna Langhoff, along with Chicago-based curator and arts-administrator Adia Sykes, have co-curated the exhibition UNDEREXPOSED. An exhibition which featured artist made jewelry created by artists of color. The series placed a finger on the pulse of an industry mainstream where there is little presence of diversity.

To enhance the reach and discussion of the work, Sarah sat down with the women to discuss how systemic racism has impacted the diversity of creative communities, how each curator has personally experienced racism within their creative careers, and why it is important to openly have these discussions.

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.

An Unexpected Opportunity: Meera Gessner

In the 29th episode of Perceived Value host Sarah Rachel Brown is kicking off 2019 by interviewing an artist who is a self proclaimed mutt-of-a-maker working in all types of mediums, in all types of ways. From hair dressing to face painting, Meera Gessner has dabbled in it all and this multi-talented woman was recently offered an opportunity that was too good to pass up.

In just a few short weeks Meera will be packing up her belongings and moving from Pennsylvania to Iowa. The two women sit down and discuss why Meera is leaving behind her beloved city, what her intention is with accepting this opportunity, and why she needs this drastic change.
