What do we mean when we talk about Portuguese, Mexican and Brazilian contemporary art in the 21st century’? What do we mean when we say that jewelry can identify a people and a culture? What do we mean when we talk about Portuguese, Mexican and Brazilian contemporary art in the 21st century’? Why do we mean when we say that a people and a culture can be identified by their jewelry? Could it nowadays only identify an epoch?
 
  •  question the cultural identity and heritage of participating artists
  • display works without showing the artists’ names and nationalities
  • look at the way jewelry manufacturing undergoes changes and is affected by other materials and techniques
  • reflect on concepts of identity and the way our past surfaces in the present
  • foster a debate on the response of the public and reveal the artists’ names and nationalities when the event closes Draw up the themes that PIN elected to embody the Twenty-Three.

Contemporary Jewelry in the Ibero-America exhibition to promote a reflection on contemporary manufacturing that will make us re-think the cultural heritage of each artist and the relations this establishes. Each of the 23 areas that make up the exhibition plan where the pieces are displayed represents a member nation of UCCI - Union of Ibero-American Capital Cities.

The artists’ names and nationalities are not displayed in order that their cultural identity and heritage can be probed and questioned. The public is invited to seek the origin of each group of artists and interact in loco by trying to discover their nationality - and leave a flag sticker at each area.
