TWEEX 1    26.04.2013 - 25.05.2013    Opening: 25.04.2013  from 18:00 to 21:00    An overview of knowledge transfer around "designer jewellery"    With the participation of  La Cambre, Brussels  IATA, Namur  St. Lucas University College of Art & Design Antwerp  and Félix Roulin.

For over a year, the young « vander A » gallery has been showing the work of visual artists and contemporary art jewellery creators. Now, in partnership with the non-profit workshop « Néon Atelier », run by Bernard François, it is to host a stunning display of the knowledge transmitted by masters of « designer jewellery » to their students in Belgian colleges and academies.
Three brand-new exhibitions will be held at the « vander A » gallery from 26 April to 25 May 2013, in September 2013 and in January 2014.
As a young, multidisciplinary genre, contemporary art jewellery is an art form in its own right, and it is undoubtedly part of our heritage.
Is the new generation of Belgian creative artists, or of foreign creators trained in Belgium, making a clear break with the know-how? Do they feel the need to venture beyond these skills, much as our master craftsmen once sought to break with the techniques of traditional jewellery, or do they just want to own them differently?
Probing the influence and role of knowledge in present-day creations, the « vander A » gallery presents the Belgian colleges and art academies frequented by artists who wish to specialise in the traditional and/or modern techniques used in contemporary jewellery.
At a time when young creators often train abroad and no longer really show any specifically national traits, we urgently need to improve our communication of our heritage, assert our undeniable mastery of this art and make known our current contribution to the international scene.
