Applications are now open for the first of our series of Artist & Fashion curated jewellery exhibitions. Merging the worlds of Fashion, Jewellery & Art we launch a new, ongoing series of jewellery exhibitions in our Berlin-based showroom. Titled ‘Curated By’, AA-COLLECTED will be working with a selection of talented artists and/or designers to curate a series of jewellery exhibitions alongside exhibitions of the artists work.
As with our previous series at BACHT Showroom in Vienna, which was included in Vienna’s Schmuck Tage & Vienna City Gallery Walk we aim to disregard the border between Art & Fashion jewellery, pushing forward simply with our appreciation of design in the form of jewellery and looking to give artists of both disciplines opportunities in the two alternative worlds.

Curated By Lacy Barry
Lacy Barry is a paper artist, she makes sculptural paper artworks in vibrant tactile colors. She will be exhibiting a series of wall-hung works that consist of two components; physical 3D paper sculpted wings & florals against a printed canvas mural that looks something like a colorful light explosion or kaleidoscope. 
Each work has an individual color story that is portrayed in combinations of colors and tactile structures.

Concept Call-out 
This curation is all about color and tactile structures portrayed in Jewellery & Art. In your submission, you can use any single or combination of materials in your work so as long as it posses the aspects of Jewellery. Pieces of adornment can be but do not have to solely consist of precious stones and metals, their composition can reach into further tactile materials such as acrylics, leather, velvets and so on. The main attribute is that they are composed in a vibrant color complementary to the ‘Little Wing X Exploding Florals Series’ being exhibited.
