Intro
Each edition of the biannual international design competition New Traditional Jewellery has a different theme. This year’s theme is New Nomads. Contemporary jewellery designers take the traditional jewellery of for instance nomads, pilgrims, explorers, world travellers, refugees and colonists, as the starting point for new designs.
The Museum of Modern Art Arnhem invites you to the opening of the exhibition New Nomads on Friday 23 November at 3pm. Isabella van den Bos, jury member New Traditional Jewellery, jewellery collector and chair of the Foundation Art in Business, will open the exhibition. 

Each edition of the biannual international design competition New Traditional Jewellery has a different theme. This year’s theme is New Nomads. Contemporary jewellery designers take the traditional jewellery of for instance nomads, pilgrims, explorers, world travellers, refugees and colonists, as the starting point for new designs. The jury selected five winners from a group of 300 competitors. Contemporary themes as globalisation and digitisation can be found in many of the designs. Personal stories, family history and local traditions are often used as source of inspiration. The exhibition consists of 37 pieces of jewellery from more than 14 countries, including Israel, Mexico, China, New Zealand and The Netherlands.
