211 pieces of jewellery from The Danish Arts Foundation’ s Jewellery Collection will in the coming months be shown in South Corea and in China. The jewellery pieces will first be shown in Seoul at MoA - Museum of Art - and afterwards in Beijing at The Danish Culture Center, which has just opened in the trend setting art district ”798”.
Since 1978, the Danish Arts Foundation has purchased jewellery created by Denmark’s leading experimental jewellery artists, and this exhibition therefore presents some of the finest Danish jewellery from the past five decades.
A unique aspect of jewellery is that is made to be worn. Much of the jewellery in the Danish Arts Foundation’s collection is included in the loan scheme launched in 2007, where someone taking part in an official event can borrow a piece of jewellery for the occasion. In this way, the jewellery can be used and exposed, and just like the other works of art purchased by the Danish Arts Foundation, it can thus reach a public audience.
