Following the experience acquired, as a curator, with Beyond Textile, jewelry made by twenty-one Argentine jewelry designers (presented in 5 European cities and one in Argentina), More than clogs and tulips ..., Dialogues from Holland (both) jewelry made by twenty Dutch jewelry designers (presented in 3 European cities), RED - BLACK, jewels, jewelery made by twenty-one Argentine jewelry designers (presented in 6 European cities), now Luis Acosta has curated and present Eloquence of the paper, jewelry and The strength of the textile, jewelry, each one with 24 designers of contemporary jewels of international renown.

This exhibition is not about the textile jewelry itself, but about something that suggests it, regardless of the material and technique used. It is the ambiguous concept of the textile jewelry where the quality of the textile materials is contrasted with the hardness and coldness of the metal.
The experience of each designer leads (sometimes unconsciously) to produce an object that is later catalogued into a discipline he had not taken into account.
It is interesting to see, within that experimentation, the application of these materials that are transformed into delicate pieces delivering a unique aesthetic to each design.

All the magic of a transformation, coupled with mastery in the design of jewelry, to deliver a mysterious message of love.  It's a traveling exhibition that can be visited (for now) in Porto (Portugal), Madrid, Barcelona (Spain) and Enschede (the Netherlands) ...
