Intro
The exhibition’s title is an expression of the artist’s dialogue with the material and the concept, the work and the viewer. The work on show explores the art of shaping materials, highlights the materials, reflects the spirit of the times and a global vision, but also calls into question the craft and the intrinsic value of jewellery.

Over the last thirty years, the field of contemporary jewellery has been evolving at an extremely rapid pace. While still largely unknown to the general public, this relatively new field has been growing on the fringes of traditional jewellery, drawing emerging artists whose innovative approaches contribute to enhancing the practice as well as its international exposure.

This special exhibition, entitled Dialogue, brings together the work of 22 young designers from Germany, Australia, Denmark, the United States, Japan, the Netherlands, Sweden and Canada. The range of this creative offering provides a glimpse of the great artistic and expressive potential of the field of contemporary jewellery. The collection explores the art of shaping materials, highlights the materials used, demonstrates originality and experimentation, reflects the spirit of the times and a global vision, but also calls into question the craft and the intrinsic value of jewellery. The exhibition’s title is an expression of the artist’s dialogue with the material and the concept, the work and the viewer.
