This year’s New York City Jewelry Week will take place from November 18th – 24th.

The Phluid Project
Tuesday, November 19th 4:00PM – 6:00PM
Celebrate the launch of Current Obsession’s paper for NYC Jewelry Week with a Social Club – informal conversations designed to reflect and expand on the content and the larger theme behind the NYCJW Paper. The Paper’s contributors, as well as young local artists, will be in attendance. In a relaxed atmosphere at The Phluid Project – the first gender-neutral fashion store in Soho, the NYC Social Club installment will involve artists who create hybrid practices and freely move between creative realms, draw on their personal history, or the history of their discipline as a starting point for boundless inclusive art practices, dealing with gender, self-representation and adornment. Drinks and tunes after! You can RSVP here.

NYC Jewelry Week is designed to share the many voices that make this city sparkle.
