Intro
Athens Jewelry Week aims through collective action, to promote Contemporary Jewelry both in Greece and abroad, enhancing awareness and exchange of views, while establishing a dialogue between national and international designer/makers or entities active in the Contemporary Jewelry field. After the great success of the Third Edition. The Anticlastics Group is more than happy to invite you to participate in the fourth edition of the event: Athens Jewelry Week.
AJW 2019 is open to Greek and International jewelry designers/makers, individual artists or art groups, schools and galleries that consider jewelry as an art form and that through their action are trying to push the boundaries, expand and enrich the field of Contemporary Jewelry. 
All events scheduled (actions, performances, seminars, lectures) will open to the public between 22nd – 29th of May 2019. Depending on their content/purpose, they may last from one day up to one month. The Central Exhibition will be hosted by Benaki Museum.

The aim of the event is to present to the wider public the specifics, diversity and artistic dimension of Contemporary Jewelry in Greece and Abroad.
In particular, it aims to:
- Inform and educate the public on issues related to Contemporary Jewelry as an art form and a means of creative expression
- Support individual artists and creative groups that are active in this particular field and
- To bring together all interested and collaborative parts/members 
(artists, galleries, collectors, museums and other institutions promoting the arts and culture etc.) through communication and networking.

Athens Jewelry Week is organised by Anticlastics.
The Anticlastics group is formed by Erato Kouloubi and Niki Stylianou. They are active in the Contemporary Jewellery scene and follow parallel paths. Their work covers a wide range of areas in the field of creative expression: from research and design to making and teaching.
The Anticlastics group is a non-profit entity aiming, through collective action, to promote Contemporary Jewelry, both in Greece and abroad, enhancing awareness and exchange of views.
