Mima’s new jewellery gallery

Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art unveils its new jewellery gallery

Presenting over 100 pieces from mima’s collection, the gallery shows work by the likes of Wendy Ramshaw, Ted Noten, Caroline Broadhead and Felieke van der Leest to name a few. To celebrate the gallery’s launch Tatty Devine has gifted 15 pieces of work, with each piece representing one year of the brand’s history, and artists Gemma Draper and Janet Hinchliffe McCutcheon have been appointed jewellers-in-residence at Teesside University.

Alix Collingwood, mima curator, says “We are extremely proud of our jewellery collection, which is unique in the UK in its focus and comparable with important collections of contemporary jewellery at the V&A and the Crafts Council. It’s an amazing resource to have in Middlesbrough and to be able to open it up to the public in this way is incredible.”
