/ Opening Tonight: DESHILADO by Miranda Skoczek for Pieces of Eight Gallery and the VAMFF Cultural Program /

We're excited to launch DESHILADO tonight! Join us from 6-8pm as we celebrate our first exhibition for 2017.

Visual artist Miranda Skoczek presents her first collection of jewelled works, exclusive to Pieces of Eight Gallery, as part of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival 2017.

Starting from the Spanish word DESHILADO, the artist pays homage to the ‘samplers’ created by stitchers in the early 16th century. The collection is a three dimensional gathering of a myriad of interests and influences that seek to remix materials and techniques, blurring the boundaries between objects, jewellery and art.

DESHILADO runs until March 25.
