Intro
The town of Cagnes-sur-Mer, strong in its commitment to contemporary jewellery, will celebrate contemporary jewellery during its very first week dedicated to this art. This major event will take place in various emblematic places in Haut-de-Cagnes, with exhibition curators Juan Riusech, Sébastien Carré and Isabelle Busnel.
With its seaside, its medieval Castle Grimaldi, its lovely Espace Solidor (the only museum solely dedicated to contemporary jewelry), and its scenic medieval old town, Cagnes is the perfect French Riviera location for a four-day event packed with a dozen exhibitions by international collectives and galleries, some lectures (in French and English), a documentary about the famed Helen Britton, open studios of local artists, guided tours, and workshops for kids and family.
