The exhibition Eligius Award 2019: Jewelry Art in Austria, presented by the MAK in cooperation with Kunst im Traklhaus, Salzburg, provides an opportunity to preview candidates’ work and affords an insight into the contemporary Austrian jewelry art scene.
 
The 13 positions that are being presented from 6 to 24 March in the MAK FORUM include unusual experiments with materials, modified ready-mades discovered in nature or in private collections, and works inspired by personal experiences or past epochs by thirteen very different artists, amongst them - graduates and teachers of Vienna Evening College of Jewellery Design Die KunstModeDesign Herbststrasse Petra Zimmermann, Veresa Eybl, Theresa Macourek and Konstanze Prechtl, as well as Klimt02 member Viktoria Münzker Ferus. The objects’ wearability is demonstrated by photographs projected onto large screens in the exhibition.
 
The artists were nominated by an international jury: 
Giampaolo Babetto (Jewellery Artist).
Cornelie Holzach (Director, Pforzheim Jewellery Museum).
Anne-Katrin Rossberg (Curator, MAK Metal Collection and Wiener Werkstätte Archive).

The awards ceremony takes place on 16 May in the Traklhaus in Salzburg, where the exhibition may be seen until 6 July, before in the fall it moves to the Pforzheim Jewellery Museum.
