Following on from the success of Sneakerheads and Heath Ledger: A Life in Pictures, AGWA launches another street-smart Culture Juice show – this time celebrating, exploring and making jewellery and adornment – Beyond Bling! In the week in which WA’s Goldfields has produced two of the biggest gold specimens in recorded history it’s a suitable time to examine WA’s unique legacy of ‘bling’ in a global context.

Centred on 300 varied pieces from the WA State Art Collection, from the 1800s to today, Beyond Bling! unlocks the AGWA vaults to showcase the best, the bizarre and the most sophisticated jewels in its historical and contemporary collections. Moving from bold and captivating wearable art to quiet and subtle and elegant, the show aims to change how visitors think about what jewellery is and can be.
