"2010 Rings" Exhibition Curated by Lily Yung at Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h

In 2009, Lily Yung, the Toronto‐based jeweller and designer, invited a dozen or so artists to participate in a wonderful, whimsical project: to each create over 100 rings, more like 144 each, to arrive at a total of 2010. The aim of this exhibition was to explore the many circuitous routes a ring might take.
From ready‐mades to the ephemeral to Arte Povera, while making use of new technologies and tackling themes such as ecology and recycling, the offerings of the selected artists surprise and stimulate both the mind and the senses. In addition to the more traditional materials, plastic, porcelain, wood, resin, and paper have been put to use in unpredictable ways.

Lily Yung
In spring 2010, Lily Yung, curator and participating artist, proposed this exhibition to the gallery. Then, in August, she died of cancer. Now, with this exhibition, Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h pays homage to the co-founder of the *new* gallery, a space dedicated to the contemporary fine crafts, to the editor of the magazine new views, but most of all to an artist who unceasingly innovated, investigated, and experimented. She took part in more than sixty group and individual shows and received many awards and grants. Shortly before her death, the Ontario Craft Council awarded her the John Mather Award for Lifetime Achievement. Her works can be found in many public and private collections. In 2010, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts acquired twenty of her creations.
