Intro
Athens Jewelry Week, 22-29 May 2019, 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.

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
– Bring together all interested and collaborative parties/members (artists, galleries, collectors, museums and other institutions promoting the arts and culture etc.) through communication and networking.

The event is organized by the Anticlastics group: Erato Kouloubi and Niki Stylianou. (The ANTICLASTICS group is non-profit).

The organization Athens Jewelry Week 2019 is addressed to jewelry schools, independent designers / makers, groups and galleries from all countries around the world 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. Thus, it is open to proposals for solo exhibitions, group exhibitions, external actions, performances, mini workshops, lectures etc. There are no restrictions regarding the material, size and concept of the work presented, however, no brand names will be admitted to participate.
As the aim of the event is to present to the wider public the specifics, diversity and artistic dimension of Contemporary Jewelry, special attention will be given to proposals that emphasize the multidisciplinary nature of contemporary artistic creativity in this field, while focusing on the ideology and aesthetics that the field is currently carrying.
