Intro
The great interest of the audience on this symposium had us fully booked in a matter of weeks. The symposium will receive participants from 31 countries and 5 continents. We are glad to offer 50 extra seats for the Gray Area Gris Symposium Mexico 2010.
What is contemporary jewellery? What does it mean for different cultures? Does it really have the powerful force that helps to shape our attitudes, beliefs, values, and behaviours? How important is it to reach a consensus on its definition? Is it necessary to redefine the way contemporary jewellery is shown, perceived and consumed? Who produces contemporary jewellery? Is it able to reflect a culturally diverse society? How are our notions of space and identity being challenged by globalization? Is the international jewellery scene so international after all? What is being done on both sides of the ocean? What do we know about each other? What can we learn about each other? Can we make it more accessible to a broader audience? Is it possible to share each other’s markets? How can we set the basis for a refreshing and enriching dialogue between jewellery makers from both continents?

With all these on mind, the Otro Diseño, Foundation for Cultural Exchange and Development, Design Flux and Ex Teresa Arte Actual, join efforts with an array of international organizations and companies bring together artists, designers, jewellery makers, academics, researchers and promoters from Latin America and Europe on a stage that stimulates friendly, creative, and engaging discussions, able to create an interdisciplinary frame of reference for contemporary jewellery and its practices within a truly multinational discourse.

From April 12th to 16th 2010, the symposium Gray Area will take place in the magnificent conference room of Ex Teresa Arte Actual, in Mexico City’s Historic Center. The symposium will be complemented by a series of parallel exhibitions and events.

The symposium is open for emerging and established jewellery makers and artists, students from the design, art and jewellery academies, art historians and critics, scholars from the arts, craft and design disciplines, museum and gallery members, art and jewellery collectors, public interested in the subject. 
Participants from all over the world are welcomed to attend.
