Intro
The exhibition is aimed specifically at graduates of contemporary jewellery, born and educated in Asia and now (summer 2014) finishing their bachelor or master in contemporary jewellery in either an Academy in Asia, or abroad. We invite you to share the information of Ubi Top Young 2014 with the graduation students of your network.

Ubi Gallery is a creative platform in Beijing, where high quality pieces of contemporary jewellery and ceramics are on display. Ubi is the first gallery in China to offer a platform for these disciplines. The collection is focused on the work of young Asian artists. Ubi means ‘where’, it refers to moving and arriving, it is about asking questions. The gallery offers a platform to those great designers and artists who through their work keep us curious. Ubi Gallery is founded in autumn 2012 and is situated in the historical area of Dashilar in Beijing, located south of the Forbidden City.

Ubi Top Young 2014
In 2013 Ubi Gallery organized for the first time the TopYoung Award for Asian jewellery graduates.
Amazed by the submissions of 74 students, a jury from Beijing, Taipei and Tokyo (Machtelt Schelling, Yu-Chun Chen of Mano Gallery, Ohchi Chitose from O-Gallery) selected the 13 best candidates.

You can find inflatable brooches; jewellery made by foam particles; pieces inspired by architecture, some very personal portraits and the example of the bare essence of a pin. Jewellery designers are famous for their innovative use of material and their ability to make small wearable sculptures. If you want to see what is going on in this new discipline – you can find a nice overview in Ubi Gallery. With great thanks to all the applicants, the jury and the universities, we presented the selection of pieces in the exhibition. We will have soon an exhibition with the TOP 3 of our young graduates: Sungho Cho; Pu Gang and He Jing.

As the contemporary jewellery is still young in many parts of Asia, offering a platform is the only thing that really can accelerate the development. The exhibition for graduates from Asia is therefore created and will be organized in 2014 again and will be continued every year after.
