Intro
The opening of the exhibition of the international jewelry competition of the Second Latin American Contemporary Jewelry Biennial will take place on Friday 14th of September at 6 pm in the MAP museum. The exhibition will show the work of 123 selected artists from all Latin America, who worked with the theme “Neighbours” (“Vecinos”).
 
Declared of Cultural Interest by the National Ministry of Culture, this edition of the Biennial has an international Latin American jury of prominent artists, teachers and curators, closely related to contemporary jewelry through the creation, research, curating and profound knowledge of the activity both in Latin America and in the rest of the world.
The winners will receive their awards during the opening.

The exhibition of the contest is central for the Biennial, a mega-event whose magnitude makes it the most important of the region, bringing the epicenter of contemporary jewelry to our place, Latin America, allowing us to value our own work from our own culture, favoring the development of identity for an art which like all others needs both local roots and continental links. The biennial is ideal for immersing ourselves in jewelry from all possible aspects, theoretical and practical, historical and conceptual.

During two and a half months, we dress the city of Buenos Aires, surrounding areas, La Plata and Junín, Province of Buenos Aires, with Latin American art jewelry. Twenty three group, personal, local and international exhibitions of jewelry will take place during the Second Latin American Contemporary Jewelry Biennial. New spaces open to show to an increasingly interested public everything that Latin American contemporary jewelry has to offer.  Different approaches, ways, paths, materials, searches and results will invite us to tour the city and surroundings, starting at the MAP (Museo de Arte Popular José Hernández/ José Hernández Folk Art Museum) where the Latin American contest exhibition will take place, towards the different venues of exhibition. Workshops, spaces for reflection, talks, new perspectives and new relations open the challenge, generate links, propose questions, making visible what has been done and promoting creation.

This Spring, Latin American contemporary jewelry is the protagonist.
