5 Things Rocking the Industry: November–December 2018

EXHIBITIONS “Jewelry: The Body Transformed,” which opened Nov. 12 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, is ­designed to explore how ­jewelry acts upon and activates the body. The dynamic show, which runs through Feb. 24, will investigate the power and purpose of jewelry through approximately 230 objects—culled almost exclusively from the Met’s existing collection. Expect to see headdresses, ear ornaments, brooches, belts, necklaces, and rings made between 2600 B.C. and the present day, alongside sculptures, paintings, prints, and photographs. Galleries will be organized thematically, delving into topics including jewelry’s link to immortality, the ways it symbolizes status and rank, and how jewelry has engendered desire through the ages.
