Intro
Faced with this situation, and after consulting with the different Argentine and Latin American actors, we have decided to postpone the biennial until 2021. For those who have already registered for the competition and sent their materials, this registration will be valid for next year.

The new scheduled date for the Biennial will be August to October 2021, opening in mid-August.

Dear Artists,
 

Faced with the uncertainty generated by the pandemic, we find ourselves in the need to make decisions about the III Latin American Biennial of Contemporary Jewelery.

We are taking into account that it is impossible to plan with any minimum certainty any activity for the rest of the year, it is not yet known when and how the different daily life or organizational activities will be allowed again (face-to-face activities, massive events, international flights, etc).

On the other hand, the reality of the artists to whom the biennial is directed is complex: some do not have their studios in their homes, others do not have material to work with, and many have inescapable priorities to pay attention to right now. The same happens with those who are preparing simultaneous exhibitions that are an essential part of the event.

Faced with this situation, and after consulting with the different Argentine and Latin American actors, we have decided to postpone the biennial until 2021.

We have also considered that the sooner we make this decision, the easier it will be to coordinate with all the participating venues and exhibitors of the event. For us, it was a very difficult decision, since we have been working for a year and a half in the preparation and coordination of the biennial, and everything was ready. But it seems to us, honestly, that there is no other alternative.

However, we do believe that this different time can serve to deepen our reflection, and these months that are added can be very creative. We hope that you also see it as an opportunity. The new scheduled date for the Biennial will be August-October 2021, opening in mid-August. 

We will shortly announce the new calendar corresponding to the competition.

For those who have already registered for the competition and sent their materials, this registration will be valid for next year. In case you want to modify your presentation, please contact us.

We thank you very much for the trust and commitment to promoting Latin American contemporary jewelry. 

We hope 2021 can be a party again!
