Intro
The selected Jewellery Artist can use the Atelier Schmuckes for the entire month and show their outcome during the last week of their stay in the form of a solo exhibition – on-site and online. In addition, an Artist Talk and the holding of a workshop by the artist are planned.
The non-commercial association Plattform Schmuckkunst was founded in 2019 and is based in the center of Graz, Austria. Integrated into the premises of the Atelier Schmuckes, it offers the possibility for a contact point or constant exchange with the local jewellery artists and those interested in jewellery. There is a wide range of workshops, regular exhibitions and literature on contemporary jewellery. Above all, the concerns of the association focus on the increased establishment of contemporary jewellery art in Graz and Styria respectively, as well as connecting national and international jewellery artists with one another.

For the second time, a Jewellery Artist in Residence program will take place from mid-June to mid-July 2022. The selected Jewellery Artist can use the Atelier Schmuckes for the entire month and show their outcome during the last week of their stay in the form of a solo exhibition – on-site and online. In addition, an Artist Talk and the holding of a workshop by the artist are planned.

The association provides a fully equipped workspace, with their own workbench and various tools and devices (casting, welding, etc.). The association will cover incurring costs for the organisation and promotion of the events (photographic documentation, printing costs for advertising material). Existing funds will be available for the exhibition design. In addition, the artist will receive an amount of 500€ for holding the workshop and covering the corresponding material costs. The costs for the already organised accommodation will also be covered by the association. Contact persons will be on-site for questions and support of any kind.

The artist undertakes to work on jewellery objects, on a topic of their choice, during the stay and agrees to exhibit the results at the end. Video and photo material are published online on the associations' platforms. Furthermore, the artist agrees to hold a workshop lasting several days and an Artist Talk during the exhibition period, which conveys the working theme and/or special working techniques. Material costs, traveling expenses and insurance must be covered by themselves.
