Melting Point 2014 VALENCIA (Spain) – 8-11 Mai 2014

Melting Point Valencia 2014

The Jewellery Department of the School of Art and Design College of Valencia (EASD) will organise the second edition of the so-called “Melting Point Valencia. Joieria Contemporània 2014” next May. In 2012 we celebrated, due to the first Melting Point, the tenth anniversary of the implementation of the Jewellery Department and jewellery studies in our centre. The experience was fruitful in terms of the participation of institutions and jewellers, the quality of the papers presented and the exchange of experiences and contacts made during those days. Thus, we really want to take advantage of the opportunity to repeat this experience.
The aim of this meeting is still the same than before: “…for one week the EASD Valencia and the whole city become the meeting point for artists, designers, experts, collectors, scholars and broad audiences interested in jewellery in southern Europe”. However, we would like to include a further ambitious goal: that is, to consolidate and strengthen our position in the national and international scene as a cultural, artistic, academic and professional reference for Spanish contemporary jewellery. We do not claim to be a trade fair, it is not our task. Hence, our goal is to spread the work of our students and the current projection of jewellery regarding language, profession, function or symbolism.
Melting Point 2014
For this 2014 edition we have the honour to offer a wide diversity of exhibitions, conferences and other activities by highly reputed institutions such as the National Museum of Ceramics and Sumptuary Arts González Martí, or the Octubre Centre for Contemporary Culture.
We want to highlight the participation of Peter Bauhuis, Ursula Guttmann, Gisbert and Rose Stach. (Germany), Museum of Turnov (Czech Republic), Villa de Bondt Gallery (Belgium), Natalia Saldías (Chile), Alchimia School (Italy), Maden Studio (Turkey), University of Lincoln (United Kingdom), La Basilica Gallery (Barcelona), Taller Perill (Barcelona) or EAD Tarragona, among others.

We also want to emphasise the relevance that this ancient discipline stands beyond our borders nowadays, on the artistic, educational and professional levels. Concerning this, we would like to ask the appropriate educational authorities for the deserved transition of the jewellery studies to a Degree level, following the same direction that other countries around our cultural and economic environment took years ago. This way, our professionals will no longer be in an inferior position when compared to the students of other European Union countries. In addition, as this demand is feasible due to the fact that human resources and programs already exist, we just need a political action.
Finally, we would like to invite you to visit Melting Point València. Joieria Contemporània 2014, in order to meet us, to learn from all the projects you can find here during these days, and to enjoy the jewellery as well as Valencia city. This is an experience we want to share with you.
