Melbourne Contemporary Jewellery and Object Biennial
Radiant Pavilion is a celebration of the many aspects of contemporary jewellery and object practice in Melbourne and around the world.

Drawing from the strong community surrounding contemporary jewellery and object in Melbourne, Radiant Pavilion has taken shape over the past five years and encompasses events from national and international artists.

In 2015 the curated program ran from 1 – 6 September and showcased 217 artists from 17 countries in 57 events including urban interventions, performances, installations, exhibitions, talks and open studios.

In 2017 the program ran from 26 August – 3 September 2017 presenting the work of 324 artists through 80 events and was accompanied by two writing projects featuring eight writers and three professional practice seminars in collaboration with Craft Victoria.

The 2019 program will run from 7 – 15 September 2019.
