April marks a new event in the contemporary jewellery calendar in Valencia - the third edition of our international biennale. It is with great pleasure that we would like to invite you to join us again; visit the planned exhibitions; participate in the arranged activities and conferences; as well as exchange ideas and engage in debate on the challenges faced by jewellery makers.
Melting Point 2016. Joieria Contemporània València.
The goal of the 2016 Melting Point is to offer an outlook of contemporary jewellery that is rich, replete with nuances and showcases the plurality of options and approaches that is characteristic of the creativity of these first decades of the 21st century. In this spirit, the Gallería Tossal will host a tribute to Marianne Gassier, a passionate collector of avant-garde jewellery and a driving force for contemporary jewellery culture through her internationally renowned blog. A solo exhibition has also been prepared with the work of Estonian Tanel Veenre, whose pieces will be on show in the sumptuous rooms of the Marqués de Dos Aguas Palace. In addition, the Centre del Carme will be hosting the young creators section: Jorge Manilla, Edu Tarín (2016 Talent Award and former EASD student), participants in Invisible Wall and Página en blanco/Página em branco, as well as the show dedicated to Young Argentinian jewellers. That is by no means all. We also have: Akis Goumas, Gisbert Stach, Judy McCaig, Peter Bauhuis and Alchimias students, Tomas Palos, Imma Gibert, Manel G. Ramiro, José Marín, Eliana Negroni with Gioielli in Fermento, Juan Riusech and Alliages, Jordi Aparicio, Joyas Sensacionales and Anna Maria Staiano, among others.
We would like to offer our warm thanks to the institutions and individuals who have collaborated in this project:
Museo Nacional de Cerámica González Martí, Direcció General de Patrimoni Cultural, Centre del Carme, Regidoria de Cultura de l’Ajuntament de València, Centre d’Artesania Comunitat Valenciana, Círculo de Bellas Artes, Fuencisla Francés, Pepe March, Solar Corona, Fabrika12, Elisa Peris…
Finally, we would like to share with you all the fulfilment of one of the greatest challenges set by the EASD Valencia Jewellery Department: the introduction of a Jewellery Bachelor of Arts course in our college, the only one in Spain, taking us to the same level as other European countries. We are similarly working on a Master’s course that we hope will materialise shortly.
