Outrageous Ornament: Extreme Jewelry in the 21st CenturyOctober 21, 2018 – January 27, 2019

From the beginning of recorded time, jewelry has both articulated identity as well as heralded status. In recognition of the universal passion for and power of jewelry, the KMA opens the 2018 fall season with Outrageous Ornament: Extreme Jewelry in the 21st Century curated by Jane Adlin, who in her role of curator of modern and contemporary design at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, organized the Jewels by JAR and Cartier 1900-1939 exhibitions. In Outrageous Ornament, the KMA presents provocative work by internationally renowned artists which expand the boundaries and our understanding of personal adornment.
