In 2023, the 9th edition of this initiative suggests a reflection on the theme 'Jewelry and Travel' and brings to Porto pieces from 78 artists from 31 different countries, created exclusively for this event, with the maximum price of 150€.

The opening of this amazing collective exhibition of unique characteristics will be at Tincal lab, shop 25 of Centro Comercial Bombarda, on the date of Simultaneous Openings at Porto Art District: 11th of November and it can be visited until the end of 2023.

On the opening date, the catalog of this edition will be released and the winner of the Jury Selection Award will be announced. The public will also have the opportunity to choose their favorite artists, in person or through online voting until the end of the year. The 3 artists will have the opportunity to exhibit at Tincal lab over the following year.

This initiative aims to inspire artists and raise public awareness by allowing jewelry to leave its more conventional commercial circuit while making its artistic side more accessible - also from a monetary point of view.

In this exhibition, artists use travel as a source of inspiration, exploring memories and materials, landscapes, favorite destinations and means of transport, presenting not only pieces of jewelry, but also reflections, stories, works of art.

Opening Reception: 11 November 2023 from 16h to 20h
