TThis exhibition of contemporary narrative jewellery explores the sense of place and cultural identity through the theme of transplantation.

Twelve artists based in the UK and Australia have explored their own sense of place and individual cultural identity as a consequence of their personal and family experiences of transplantation.

Transplantation is a travelling exhibition developed by the University of Lincoln, assisted by the National Centre for Craft and Design and funded by Arts Council England. In Australia it is toured by Museum and Gallery Services Queensland.
