NOD - not only decoration, a not-for-profit artist collective, is currently putting out a call for entries to all makers to submit works for an exhibition at the Vienna Jewellery Days, November 7-12. Whether you’re a jeweller, artist, videographer or whatever; NOD would love to show your work.
As always, NOD aims to show works that take a newer view on contemporary jewelry and for this event, NOD are looking for works which focus on social and environmental issues or even have a critical view on the jewellery industry itself for an eclectic, multi disciplinary show that is Not Only an Exhibition. Any and all mediums are welcomed! However this exhibit is especially geared towards multimedia works and films that challenge the idea that jewellery pieces are objects with no meaning (and perhaps more than physical objects). So if you have some form of filmic jewellery that sends a message, we want you! If its not filmic, we probably want you anyway so still apply!
For this opportunity, the works will be presented in the heart of Vienna, just a stone's throw away of the famous Stephen’s Cathedral at the gallery “alja&friends”. The gallery is founded by the three jewelry artists, Alja Neuner, Angelina Kafka and Elisabeth Habig, who found each other by their common love to contemporary jewelry. Together they not only explore, with their three different perspectives, the possibilities of contemporary jewelry, they also exhibit jewelry artists from all over the world to Vienna, to show you the whole spectrum of jewelry. Because of this, alja&friends are excited to work with the Not Only Decoration collective to show Vienna a new Global Perspective.
