Contemporary Swedish Silver
NOVEMBER 11 – 29, 2017
The exhibition Corpus Maximus is a majestic manifestation of contemporary Swedish silversmithing. Twenty-one of our finest silversmiths challenge themselves both artistically and technically as they participate in this group exhibition with one showpiece each. Despite their diverse points of departure and modes of expression, all the participants share a deep-rooted love for the art form of silver.
