WHOLE-CAST(E) Pop-Up Shop & Exhibition

June 13 - 25

Celebrating excellence and artistry in jewelry, BMoCA is presenting a collection of unique and one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable art for sale in this limited time Pop-Up Shop. These women have much in common beyond their racial, ethnic and gender identity, sharing an excellence in their craft and a never-ending exploration of artistic expression.

Whole-cast(e) is a reference to both the jewelry process (gold casting is a traditional process using wax and molds) but also the artists’ backgrounds, race and the caste system (an artificial hierarchy that helps determine standing and respect, assumptions of beauty and competence and who gets access to resources) and how it intersects with those who are biracial (or half caste). 

For sale and on view for the first time in Colorado is work from artists hailing from North Carolina, Rhode Island, Trinidad and Tobago, and Barbados. These artists use a range of materials – sgraffito enameling; carved shell and ceramic forms; embroidery; light and large silver and gold body adornment; to create pieces imbued with personal and historical identities.
