Ben Lignel

Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series 2013

The MFA in Applied Craft and Design and Museum of Contemporary Craft welcome Benjamin Lignel as part of the 2013-2014 Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

Benjamin Lignel first trained in philosophy and literature, then in art history, at New York University and finally in furniture design in London. Most of his time is devoted to creating jewelry, but the laws of gravity have recently been steering him back towards desktop adventures, including, but not limited to, curatorial, associative and writing endeavors. In 2007, he co-founded La Garantie, Association Pour Le Bijou, a French association with a mission to study and promote jewelry. He became a member of Think Tank: A European Initiative for the Applied Arts in 2009.
