Radiant Pavilion 2017

So much more than a jewellery market, this biannual event covers object installations, exhibitions, workshops and performances.

Contemporary jewellery and object biennial Radiant Pavilion will return to Melbourne at the end of August, bringing more Australian and international artists than you can shake a stick at — luckily, you'll have a whole week to try.

With 80 events across 62 venues, you'd best start early. Expect to find a lane paved in gold leaf on Crossley Street, drink sake out of handmade cups in Flinders Lane, and peep jewellery in every arty way you can imagine across the streets and venues of the city. Street works, exhibitions, performances and masterclasses will make up the weekend from artists such as Robert Baines, Liv Boyle, Helen Britton and Yutaka Minegishi (and that's just a few).

There's also New Colony, a public installation of an imagined swarm of unidentified insects who take up residence in Flinders Lane, and 2483 Melbourne Tailoresses' Union Triptych in which a number of resin pendants represent individual striking female tailors in 1882-83. Past, present and future will converge in the event, so don't miss seeing your old mate Melbourne in a new light from August 26 till September 3.
