The Voyage of a Contemporary Italian Goldsmith in the Classical World: Golden Treasures by Akelo
June 5 - September 26, 2010
The classical past breathes again through the golden masterpieces of Akelo, who, through his in-depth studies of ancient texts and ceaseless technical experimentation, recovered the ancient goldsmithing solutions of the Greeks, Etruscans and Romans. This exhibition focuses on Akelo’s responses to the classical world in both technique and style. While technical perfection is paramount to Akelo, he balances this with a timeless classicizing language and modern artistic sensibility steeped in the techniques and art of classical jewelry.
