Lauren Kalman was born in Cleveland Heights, Ohio and completed her MFA in Art, from the Ohio State University and received her BFA, with a focus in metals, from Massachusetts College of Art. Her professional experience includes an apprenticeship at the Johnson Atelier Technical Institute of Sculpture, and recent residencies at the Santa Fe Art Institute , New Mexico and the University fo Stellenbosch, South Africa. She is currently adjunct faculty at Rhode Island School of Design. Her international exhibition includes exhibitions at galleries, museums and nonprofit spaces including the Recoleta Center in Buenos Aries, Argentina and the Kurze Filme in Basel, Switzerland. Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Fine Art, Boston, Ohio State University, Columbus Ohio, and Massachusetts College of Art, Boston.

By creating objects of adornment that are unconventional in their application to the body she questions traditional values. In making her work she has become more aware of the values she ascribes to her own body and the objects used to adorn it. Through her work, she hopes to communicate alternative thought about material worth, social custom, and the body.

EXPO ‘Not the Family Jewels!’ – gallery1724, Houston (USA) – 6 Fev-14 Mars 2010

« Not the Family Jewels! » is an exhibit of non-traditional approaches of wearable artworks curated by Emily Sloan and including the artwork of Gabriel Craig, Arthur Hash, Lauren Kalman (image), Masumi Kataoka, Katja Korsawe, Edward McCartney, Gwendolyn McLarty, Erika Pahk, Natalya Pinchuk, Gary Schott, Amy Weiks, and Kristi Wilson.

« This year the Society of North American Goldsmiths will hold its annual convention in Houston. That event inspired curator Emily Sloan to put together this small show of distinctly non-precious jewelry at Gallery 1724, the funky hair salon/art gallery hybrid on Bissonnet.  “Not the Family Jewels!” explores the modern practice of craft. [...]  there are plenty of actual pieces of jewelry in the show. Edward McCartney created a necklace made of bobbers (called Fishing Necklace). The little spheres, bisected with red on one side and white on the other, make a rather large, attractive piece of neckwear, though probably too bulky to be practical. German artist Katja Korsawe’s necklace, made of twisted rubber bands, is likewise impractical; the rubber will harden and become brittle. But it looks great: red and knobby and textured. The curious Eskimo Kissers by Gary Schott look like colorful felt-covered pacifiers. It is hard to know whether they are meant to be jewelry or tiny sculptural objects. Ultimately, that is what this entire show is asking. » (Thanks to Robert Boyd at Labs, Houston blog)
