Triple Parade exhibitions in Tianjin & Beijing Exhibition  /  10 Nov 2016  -  17 Jan 2017 - Tianjin Shengxi Museum of Fine Arts & Gauguin Gallery Beijing

The main exhibition TRIPLE PARADE 2016 -  Dialogue Across You and Me to Them: Creator, Wearer, Viewer  – Central Traveling Exhibition Represented 110 jewellery designers & artists from 14 countries.

The Triple Parade 2016 international annual exhibition is a cultural exchange which is expanded between China and the rest of the world on a multitude of level, devoted to the hardcore awakening in jewellery design, with a very open and contemporary-oriented approach by focusing on the concept of dialoguing.

The pervious themes were: Triple Parade 2015 – Dialogue across Three Countries, Triple Parade 2014 – Dialogue across Three Generations. This year, the term Dialogue across You and Me to Them: Creator, Wearer, Viewer in our theme is vitally important marks the notion of social interaction. We believe that the significance and multiple capacities of the dialogue mark have not been truly recognized. Each of the three roles in a dialogue, which are briefly introduced in the plate sections devoted to them, addresses one perspective on how  » Dialogue » plays a progressive position in the contemporary jewellery design of our period. Jewellery examines how we define self, integration and segregation, the means used for communication – and how these issues are reflected in creative work.

the artists and designers will be part of this year’s TRIPLE PARADE Central Exhibitions are:

 » TRIPLE PARADE 2016 will open its door at 10th NOV in Tianjin in China, it embraced the aspirations in a great ambition, setting up an intensive program consisting of exhibitions, publication, workshops, forum, lecture, which included dialogues with international collaboration partners from Netherlands, United States, United Kingdom, China, Denmark, Spain. The exhibition represented an enormous challenge to everyone involved in purely quantitative terms: with over 260 works by more than a hundred designers and artists from 14 countries. 11 experts from 8 countries have been exclusively invited to be in Tianjin as speaker on the Design Forum. The publication consists of 7 groups of interviews, including 14 experts on board, giving perspectives from education, collecting, creating, curating, wearing, and dealing on contemporary jewellery design. I am confident that it will open up new perspectives on the giant, and I would like to invite all the visitors to discover the greatly relevant designs from a field so full of surprises, with such a future ahead of it. » Jie Sun (founder of Triple Parade)

Congrats to all the artists who made the SCHMUCK 2016 list, on show at the Handwerksmesse  during #munichjewelleryweek  24/02–1/03/2016

While our western countries discuss a lot, in a « social » point of view, about veil, tchador & so on,  fashion (Gaultier, Margiela, Hussein Chalayan, etc etc … ) & jewelry designers show their own interpretation about it …  finally, « only » an adornment ?

 “I create wearable jewelry that investigates contexts relating to sex, gender, power, pleasure, pain, taste and beauty. This project originated in response to the architect Adolf Loos’s 1910 lecture Ornament and Crime, criticizing the use of decoration in utilitarian objects. My jewelry, when on the body, enacts Loos’s ‘crimes’ of individualism, eroticism, and ornamentation.” Lauren Kalman

«  Lauren Kalman  focuses on the creation, documentation, and display of wearable sculpture, electronic adornments, photographs, video, and performance. Diseases like elephantiasis, acne, cancer, and herpes are presented as jeweled infections, fabric growths, or wearable instruments. They are hybrids of the grotesque or undesirable aspects of the body and objects we associate with beauty, status, health or wealth. »

EXPO ‘coOperation – GARNISH’ – Gallery Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco (USA) – 19 Aout-20 Sept. 2015

co-operation – garnish

A collaborative exhibition organized by Brigitte Martin and Rachel Timmins

Artists’ Reception:  Friday August 21, 6-8pm

co-operation - garnish

 A garnish can be anything from an adornment that adds or enhances the body (human or animal) to a functional or nonfunctional object that decorates and spices up a room. This exhibition will ask viewers and participants to examine the idea of a garnish made by 2 different subsets of makers who have come together to create an embellishment that satisfies both.

Statement from the organizers:
A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current. The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Each side considers itself superior to the other, seemingly not appreciating the clear advantages, benefits, and experiences each faction brings to the table. Quoting from Damian Skinner’s 2013 SNAG keynote lecture in Toronto:
“We are all family. Sometimes, family members don’t speak with each other, but we still are one big family. Let’s recognize this fact.”
Can our field overcome family division and send a much-needed signal to the metals + jewelry community? We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making. Arriving at this message is the goal of this exhibition.”  – Brigitte Martin and Rachel Timmins

Preziosa Young 2015 selection

First selection of 24 artists – Among them, 6-8 artists will be choose to participate to the Preziosa. Contemporary Jewellery Exhibition

Preziosa Young 2015
PREZIOSA YOUNG 2015.
The first selection was made!! We received over 120 entries, and among these participants we have selected 24 artists:
Lisa BjörkeBifei Cao — Chae Sekang — Yu Fang Chi Bartosz Maria ChmielewskiMarion Delarue — Duan Yanli — Annie GobelDaniela Hedman — Holland Houdek — Jhang Hao-Han – Lauren Kalman — Charlotte Kreuter — Tithi KutchamuchLee Seoyeon — Vicky Lew — Bruno Micolano — Luigi Piantanida — Sang Deok Han — Jie SunMichal Taharlev — Yen-Yu Tseng — Youmi KimSangji Yun.

Among this group we will choose the artists (6-8) that will participate in the exhibition in Florence, and will be included in the catalogue.

PREZIOSA is a cultural project designed and co-ordinated by “Le Arti Orafe”, since 1985 the most prestigious contemporary jewellery school in Italy.
The project, launched in 2005, has become one of the most important European events devoted to contemporary jewellery.
The conceptual quality, the presence of artists of international fame, the prestigious set-up, the elegant catalogues and the original formula that comprises the organisation of conferences with the artists taking part, make “Preziosa” an appointment that lovers of contemporary jewellery cannot afford to miss.
A country of exquisite jewellery traditions, Italy has no museum devoted to jewellery, and temporary exhibitions have always been rare.
The attention devoted by the communication media and the cultural institutions to initiatives devoted to this art form has – apart from a few shining exceptions – always been limited, while great interest has always been expressed by lovers of contemporary art.
Through the organisation of events such as PREZIOSA, the school wishes to help to fill a gap the discrepancy of which is more or less consciously acknowledged.
Since 2008, a « parallel » exibition for young artists is organized: PREZIOSA Young is already an international reference for new artists and goldsmiths

This exhibition’s catalogue has received support from the Norwegian Association for Arts and Crafts as well as the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
1. Each of the three curators has put together a selection of works illustrating their specific take on
difference and repetition.
2. Rather than display at once their three selections, we preferred re-assembling them into three
conversations around the subject.
2. Each conversation focuses on a different aspect of the subject.
3. The conversations will follow one another (some of the pieces will be present in all three sessions)
4. This method will hopefully encourage visitors to spend more time with less work, and enjoy the

complex things they suggest, or the silence they create around them

EXPO ‘Multiple Exposures : Jewelry and Photography’ – MAD Museum, New York (USA) – 13 Mai-14 Sept. 2014

« Multiple Exposures »

exhibition at Museum of Arts and Design (MAD Museum), New York, featuring:
JANTJE FLEISCHHUTMARI ISHIKAWAJIRO KAMATA and SHARI PIERCE.

Upcoming exhibition at Museum of Arts and Design, New York, featuring:<br />JANTJE FLEISCHHUT, MARI ISHIKAWA, JIRO KAMATA and SHARI PIERCE.<br />http://madmuseum.org/exhibition/multiple-exposures
 
Multiple Exposures: Jewelry and Photography is the first museum exhibition to explore how contemporary jewelry artists transform and add new meaning to the pervasive images of this digital age.  Drawing inspiration from historic daguerreotypes to manipulated digital images, international jewelry artists explore changing views of beauty and the human body; examine social, political, and cultural issues; probe perceptions of memory and desire; and question the broader relation of jewelry to society and personal identity, issues central to the contemporary experience.
 
More than 80 renowned artists from over 20 countries are represented —including
Gijs Bakker, Wafaa Bilal, Jordan Doner, Mari Ishikawa, Jiro Kamata, Sooyeon Kim, Iris Nieuwenburg, Kara Ross, Gabriela Sanchez, Bernhard Schobinger, Bettina Speckner,
Joyce Scott, Kiff Slemmons, Andy Warhol and Noa Zilberman.
 
The connection between photography and jewelry extends back more than 150 years to the invention of the photographic process.  The exhibition will provide historical context for this evolving relationship by presenting outstanding nineteenth-century pieces, many of which have never before been exhibited. In recent years, both photography and art jewelry have changed dramatically, and the exhibition will present cutting-edge videos and installations that will provide viewers a broader perspective of contemporary jewelry now.
Organized by MAD’s Curator of Jewelry, Ursula Ilse-Neuman, Multiple Exposures: Jewelry and Photography will be on view from May 13 to September 14, 2014.
Multiple Exposures: Jewelry and Photography will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with essays by Ursula Ilse-Neuman, MAD’s Acting Chief Curator Lowery Stokes Sims, Dutch author and jewelry curator Liesbeth den Besten, photography expert Mark Durant, Curator of Decorative Arts at the Toledo Museum of Art Jutta Page, American author and Metalsmith editor Suzanne Ramljak, photography historian and critic Lyle Rexer and German author and critic Ellen Maurer Zillioli.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a full range of educational programming, including lectures and panels for adults, workshops for young visitors and families, in-house demonstrations of jewelry making, curator-led tours of the exhibition, and a variety of film screenings.

EXPO ‘But if the Crime is Beautiful….’ – Sienna Gallery (US) – 8 Fevr.-23 Mars 2014

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Sienna Patti (US),Lauren KALMAN (US),USA — bijoucontemporain @ 0:15

Lauren Kalman : But if the Crime is Beautiful….  – Sienna Gallery

Sienna Patti and Sienna Gallery are pleased to present the newest works by artist Lauren Kalman
Lauren Kalman | February 8 – March 23, 2014 - Sienna Gallery

But if the Crime is Beautiful…. consists of fabricated and found objects combined with the body to produce sculptural compositions. These sculptures are documented and exist as photographs. The objects used to make the compositions are installed among the sculpture/photographs as residue of the action. The title of the project, But if the Crime is Beautiful…, and the series in this exhibition, Composition with Ornament and Object, are derived from Adolf Loos’ 1910 lecture Ornament and Crime. With “but if the ornament is beautiful” he is quoting the naive (in his view) population’s defense of ornament as long as it is beautiful. His proposition is that ornament is regressive and primitive, that in (his) contemporary society only degenerates and criminals are decorated (this includes women). The “crime” in my work points not only to the decorated but also to deviant sexuality and female sexuality, especially 19th and early 20th century constructions, of which our current understanding of sexuality is built upon. Loos’ writings on architecture and functional art helped to define the principals of the Modern Architecture movement and eventually the Bauhaus. The influence of these movements permeates the contemporary built environment and therefore impacts our psychological and bodily relationship to space and objects.

Lauren Kalman - but if the crime is beautiful ... 2013Lauren Kalman - but if the crime is beautiful … 2013

Lauren Kalman is a visual artist whose practice is invested in installation, video, photography and performance.

She has taught at institutions including Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI. Currently she is an Assistant Professor at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. She exhibits and lectures internationally.

EXPO ‘Mirror Mirror’ – Espace Solidor, Cagnes-sur-mer (FR) – 23 Juin-23 Sept. 2012

Du 23 juin au 23 septembre : « Mirror Mirror »
Une exposition en hommage à Suzy Solidor, sur une proposition de Jo Bloxham et Benjamin Lignel.

Cagnes-sur-mer« Vingt-neuf artistes, de quatorze pays différents, ont répondu à notre invitation et se sont penchés sur la vie de Suzy Solidor. Nous croyons que la diversité de leurs réponses constitue un tribut à un parcours de vie hors normes, et qu’il est propice de la lire en dialogue avec les tableaux présentés du Château. Miroir déformé de sa collection de portraits, elle la prolonge (ces bijoux et objets sont souvent eux-mêmes des portraits), mais “l’exagère” aussi. En effet, les pratiques représentées ici ne sont pas mimétiques : il n’est pas question de “ressembler” à un sujet, mais d’équiper ses fictions identitaires : “je suis pirate / chanteuse / mangeuse d’hommes et de femmes / malouine échappée à Paris… pour y chanter des histoires de bord de mer”.
Le bijou a ceci de singulier qu’il identifie son propriétaire. Il le désigne, mais l’invente aussi : quel meilleur medium que le bijou pour alimenter la mythomanie légère de Solidor ?
Si elles dialoguent avec Suzy, les oeuvres montrées ici le font aussi avec la pratique du bijou contemporain elle-même. Ce dernier point a guidé nos choix photographiques dans la composition de ce catalogue. Au lieu de reproduire les objets détourés sur fond blanc, ce qui aurait encouragé une lecture sculpturale des pièces, nous avons préféré rendre à chaque objet sa taille relative, et photographier chaque double-page en une seule prise de vue en y laissant les indices d’un déballage récent. Notre propos était de rendre manifeste l’envers du décor des expositions de bijou contemporain : sa dimension logistique, et la réalité de ces colis qui voyagent d’un bout du monde à l’autre pour arriver à Cagnes-sur-Mer (les “boites” s’envoleront à nouveau après cette première exposition vers la galerie Velvet da Vinci de San Francisco). Cette quête de réalisme aura été l’occasion d’établir des correspondances imprévues entre les pièces en vis-à-vis : ultimes miroirs dont nous espérons qu’ils enrichiront la lecture de chaque oeuvre.
L’invitation faite à chaque artiste de créer un bijou “pour quelqu’un” reproduit des schémas de commande très conventionnels dans les arts appliqués : on verra cependant dans les pages suivantes à quel point leurs réponses ne le sont pas.«

EXPO ‘Tributaries’ – Metal Museum, Memphis (USA) – 4 Mai-24 Juin 2012

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,Lauren KALMAN (US),MUSEE,USA,www NOOVOeditions — bijoucontemporain @ 0:04

Tributaries: Lauren Kalman

Tributaries: Lauren Kalman will be on view at the Metal Museum from May 4, 2012 – June 24, 2012.

EXPO 'Tributaries' - Metal Museum, Memphis (USA) - 4 Mai-24 Juin 2012 dans Exposition/Exhibition release2Blooms, Efflorescence, and Other Dermatological Embellishments – (Wart) 2009 Inkjet Print

Lauren Kalman’s work pulls from discourses dealing with the imaged body, consumer culture, body aesthetics and illness. Through the production of jewelry objects, photography, video, sculpture and performance, her projects visually link the divergent discourses.

Her current work replicates and transforms illness and trauma through performance, video, objects and photography. Diseases like acne, cancer, herpes, elephantiasis or physical trauma like amputation and facial reconstruction surgery, are presented as jeweled infections, fabric growths or wearable instruments. They are hybridizations of the grotesque or undesirable aspects of the body and objects we associate with beauty, status, health or wealth.

In conjunction with her exhibition, Lauren Kalman will give a public lecture on Thursday, May 3 at 7pm at Memphis College of Art in Callicott Auditorium. On Friday, May 4, 6-9pm we will have a free opening reception at the Metal Museum.
