Contemporary Art jewellery Gallery “vander A” and Bernard François “Néon atelier” launch the TWEEX project - an overview of knowledge transfer around “designer jewellery”. 

For over a year, the young “vander A” gallery has been showing the work of visual artists and contemporary art jewellery creators. Now, in partnership with the non-profit workshop Néon Atelier, run by Bernard François, it is to host a stunning display of the knowledge transmitted by masters of “designer jewellery” to their students in Belgian colleges and art academies. 

The first exhibition showing the work of Masters and Students from – IATA (Namur) – St. Lucas University College of Art & Design Antwerp and - La Cambre (Brussels) will be held at the “vander A” gallery from 26 April to 25 May. 

At a time when young creators often train abroad and no longer really show any specifically national traits, we urgently need to improve our communication of our heritage, assert our undeniable mastery of this art and make known our current contribution to the international scene.
Is the new generation of Belgian creative artists, or of foreign creators trained in Belgium, making a clear break with the know-how? Do they feel the need to venture beyond these skills, much as our master craftsmen once sought to break with the techniques of traditional jewellery, or do they just want to own them differently? 

The TWEEX project initiated by the “vander A” gallery in cooperation with the non-profit workshop Néon Atelier run by Bernard François, a mainstay of the art scene and founder of the avant-garde Brussels gallery Néon, will mark a major step in the history of Belgian contemporary art jewellery.
