TRIPLE PARADE Biennial, a prestigious international exhibition event holds the success spirit and high qualified soul as a good mediator between East and West. From the very start of itis devoted to the core awakening in contemporary art, applied arts and design from a perspective of jewellery. This year, TRIPLE PARADE comes to the FOURTH celebration by the theme – DIALOGUE across the past, the present, the future. The event program (exhibition, symposium, workshop, publication, lecture series) will happen in Museum in SHANGHAI in China, during the period of the world-class 12th Shanghai Art Biennial and Shanghai International Design Week.
About the Themes:
Dialogue, the past & the present &the future

It does not only mean a logistic timeline within this theme, either “from the past to the future”, “from the future to the present”, or just single perspective from the future, but to discuss what is the essential value beyond of time being, that either has pasted, or the present or has not come yet. This value is what we aim for, especially for jewelry, that which can be created has value more beyond the demand for a jewelry and determines its physical value. “Value” is a creative process whose multiple approaches provide an unlimited sphere of definitions and interpretations for the study of its role in three different time period. The creative practice had already proved its value in this early period as an important instrument for development and also for speculation about creating a future. Therefore, foremost with skillfully creating an object is that it first born out of pure necessity: the need for self-expression, or to create utilitarian objects, and then the subsequent need to create distinctions, be it class, social, economic. Using these objects both as a status symbols and as items to be collected. There is also the need to react societal situations, to which artists and designers, makers are known to be very responsive. That is in constant growth and is generating a wealth of new ideas that are enriching our mundane reality in the most imaginative manner. This theme has chosen a connecting innovative approach in its attempt to comprehend jewellery.
