Intro
The Art Jewelry Night of Budapest is organised by Studio of Young Designers Association for the seventh time this year. The event has gone through a lot of changes over the last 7 years, the original principles are still the same, but it has outgrown the one-night attributive. As a result, this year the string of events will be organised under a brand new name and profile, and from 2021 our programme can be found by following us at our new name, Budapest Jewelry Week (BJW).

Artist list

Gijs Bakker, David Bielander, Manfred Bischoff, Iris Bodemer, Caroline Broadhead, Peter Chang, Lin Cheung, Giovanni Corvaja, Georg Dobler, Karl Fritsch, Kiko Gianocca, Susanne Hammer, Melanie Isverding, Daniel Kruger, Otto Künzli, Fritz Maierhofer, Marc Monzó, Ted Noten, Ruudt Peters, Ramon Puig Cuyàs, Vera Siemund, Bettina Speckner, Gisbert Stach, Hans Stofer, Christoph Straube, Lisa Walker
The fundamental goal of the event is to provide a common platform for contemporary jewelry artists, to motivate them and to build a professional network. Our programme has been aiming to enhance our connections to the international scene more and more extensively, and to enable cooperation between international and Hungarian artists not only through the exhibitions that we organise, but also through workshops and professional reports.
 
This year instead of the usual artist call we are preparing a large-scale exhibition that showcases artworks by outstanding artists whose oeuvre has been significantly impacting the way contemporary jewelry develops, evolves. The show is entitled IDOL, and it intends not only to present exemplary careers but also to show respect for professional commitment. The international exhibition is planned to display pieces by 30 artists. The goal of the show is to set directions to follow, to create bridges between past and present, and it wants to address young, emerging artists as well as established professionals. In addition, we aim to give a good example for a wider audience as well, which in the long run will enable a community with a deeper understanding of contemporary jewelry to be formed in Hungary.
 
Such an exhibition is without precedent in Hungary, therefore it is of paramount importance for us to provide a comprehensive overview of the works by pioneer artists of the last 40 years.
 
The György Ráth Villa, which constitutes an auxiliary part of the Museum of Applied Arts and will host the exhibition, will provide an exciting ambience with its art nouveau enterieur for the contemporary objects reflecting on the traditions of object design.
 
We find it crucial to ensure that the audience can see the objects in person, therefore we are and will be striving to hold a live event taking into account the pandemic situation of course.


Besides the main exhibition there will be lectures too:
4 Sept, 6 pm: Lecture in English on contemporary jewelry. Lecturers: Alice Floriano and Bryna Pomp.
10 Sept, 6 pm: Lecture by Ruudt Peters in Budapest on contemporary jewelry – Három Holló/Drei Raben (Budapest, Piarista köz 1, 1052, Hungary). Registration is necessary! (Pleaes contact: ekszerekejszakaja.bp@gmail.com)
