On its 9th edition JOYA has invited 3 lecturers who develop their career on the international stage: Rebekah Frank, Executive Director de AJF, Gésine Hackenberg, jewellery artist, teacher and JOYA jury 2017 and Bella Neyman, writer, curator and founder of Platforma in New York.

Thursday 5th - 14:00h:
Rebekah Frank: Art Jewellery Forum (USA)

Art Jewelry Forum works to provide a platform to understand a jewelry artist's creative intentions while encouraging collectors and enthusiasts to understand the larger picture as they connect to their interest in art jewelry. One way we support artists is by providing opportunities for awards and grants to further artistic research and creative practice. We couldn't do this without the investment of collectors and enthusiasts who wish to challenge and encourage the field by providing financial support for the grants and awards. AJF's executive director, Rebekah Frank, will speak about these opportunities, how they come about, and why they are important to the field of art jewelry.

Friday 6th - 14:00h:
Gésine Hackenberg: Where jewellery and every everyday life meet (Germany/The Netherlands)

Gésine Hackenberg uses divers techniques and materials to explore the conceptual cross-sections between jewellery and objects of everyday life. She is investigating how objects from a domestic context relate to the individual and the body. The history of those objects as well as classical topics of art and jewellery history serve as a thief source of inspiration, always relating those topics to her own contemporary context.
In her artist talk, Gésine Hackenberg will give a glimpse of her artistic practice, what the constituents in the process are and how stories about preciousness, adornment and the human condition develop.

Saturday 7th - 14:00h:
Bella Neyman: PLACEMENT (USA)

Will contemporary jewelry ever not need to be defined? Join the speaker as she discusses her career as a curator and writer and her efforts to change the status of the field from emerging to established. Hear about Bella’s plans to place contemporary jewelry on every man, woman, and child.
The title of the talk, “Placement” refers to an exhibition that the artist curated at the Gallery at Reinstein Ross in May 2015. For this exhibition jewelry artists were teamed up with street artists to collaborate on a collection of jewelry. Bringing the worlds of street art and art jewelry together was more than just a way for artists from these two art forms to familiarize themselves with each other, they have something very important in common: they are both a form of public art. The idea of placement is very important to jewelry, because one it is placed on the body it is on view for the entire world to appreciate, similarly to street art where a murals’ placement on a wall allows it to reach a wide audience.
