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

EXPO ‘Un Certain Regard’ – PREZIOSA 2013 – Marino Marini Contemporary Art Museum, Florence (Italy) – 20 Juin–21 Juill. 2013

PREZIOSA. Contemporary Jewellery Exhibition  2013’s edition

Un Certain Regard

Un Certain Regard -     Artists: Karin Seufert, Philip Sajet, Suska Mackert, David Bielander,Sophie Hanagarth, Sigurd Bronger  -  Marino Marini Contemporary Art Museum  (Florence, Italy)  20-Jun-2013 - 21-Jul-2013    website: www.preziosa.org2013’s edition of the international exhibition PREZIOSA Contemporary jewellery organized by LE ARTI ORAFE Jewellery School.
PREZIOSA 2013 starts from the otherness of this peculiar Art, and wants to focus on visual reaction of the “public” in face of contemporary research jewellery.
The thematic exhibition will be centred on the imaginary, on expectations and assumptions of the public in relation to the jewel.
The exhibition presents works by six international artists selected as examples of specific issues related to the imaginary: recognition/estrangement/surprise/rejection/trespassing, and will be divided into three sections:
– « To be or not be »: shapes visually recall ancient jewels like precious objects, but in reality….?
– Artwork by Karin Seufert and Philip Sajet
– The conceptual research on the imagination in jewellery: Suska Mackert
– « What I see is what I see! »
The irony of David Bielander; the aggressiveness of Sophie Hanagarth; the fun mechanics of Sigurd Bronger.
curator: Maria Cristina Bergesio

- Wearable!
Photo exhibition of worn contemporary jewellery.
The exhibition of jewellery is complemented by a photographic project of the show itself.

The twelve pictures will be displayed in the Museo Marino Marino inside PREZIOSA exhibition, and will also be present in the places where the photos were taken, so as to establish a mutual connection between the exhibition space and the town.

EXPO ‘Gioielli in Fermento 2012′ – La Vigna delle Arti, Torre Fornello (Piacenza, IT) – 22 Avril-26 Mai 2012

Gioielli in Fermento 2012

La Vigna delle Arti
22 aprile – 26 maggio 2012
inaugurazione domenica 22 aprile alle ore 17
con la collaborazione di
AGC Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo,
Le Arti Orafe Jewellery School di Firenze
con il patrocinio di Provincia di Piacenza, Comune di Ziano Piacentino

Pinned Image

 

durante l’inaugurazione verrà attribuito il

Premio TORRE FORNELLO – Gioielli in fermento 2012  (Torre Fornello award)
Concorso aperto a orafi, artigiani del gioiello, artisti orafi, progettisti, designers, per la realizzazione ed esposizione di un gioiello ispirato al tema vitivinicolo e al racconto del vino nella suggestiva cornice della Vigna delle Arti* di Torre Fornello, Ziano Piacentino.

*La Vigna delle Arti è un progetto culturale sulle varie interpretazioni dell’arte contemporanea a cui Torre Fornello da anni dedica assoluta attenzione: a cadenza annuale più artisti vengono invitati a sperimentare, confrontarsi ed esprimersi nel contesto delle vigne che li ospita.

All’interno della Vigna delle Arti, l’esposizione Gioielli in fermento, giunta quest’anno alla seconda edizione, ed il concorso ad essa associato, stimola il racconto del vino, fonte di ispirazione per gioielli unici:
nei vini, frutto di terre piacentine, troviamo tracce di storia, scopriamo un territorio, sapore e carattere, sperimentiamo sensazioni. Eccoci di fronte a malvasia e gutturnio, l’espressione massima di queste colline.

Donna Luigia Malvasia DOC Colli Piacentini
Pratobianco Emilia IGT
Sinsäl Gutturnio Superiore DOC Colli Piacentini

tre vini, tre uve, tre colori, tre racconti, tre ispirazioni

Gli autori, con presenze da tutta Italia e dall’estero, si sono ispirati alle sfumature di questi tre prodotti dei Colli Piacentini per creare monili unici e la Giuria assegnerà nella giornata di inaugurazione della mostra, un riconoscimento alle due opere giudicate più interessanti per l’originalità e l’attinenza al tema, con particolare attenzione alla cura e al dettaglio di realizzazione e all’indossabilità di un ornamento contemporaneo.

I premi in palio sono costituiti da due posti per la partecipazione al Workshop con Stefano Marchetti nella sessione estiva presso Le Arti Orafe Jewellery School a Firenze.
Le iscrizioni sono offerte grazie a Torre Fornello e Le Arti Orafe Jewellery School, dal 1985 scuola per l’oreficeria contemporanea a Firenze.
Il workshop « Superficie in profondità nel design di gioielli – Fare a pezzi le idee, un diverso approccio al design del gioiello”, si tiene a Firenze presso la sede della scuola dal 23 al 26 luglio 2012.

Insieme ai prestigiosi premi siamo lieti di presentare la Giuria che conferirà il carattere distintivo a questa manifestazione: hanno accettato il nostro invito personalità coinvolte per professione o per sensibilità nel panorama del gioiello italiano, in un’ottica di continuità con i progetti già avviati con la Collezione permanente di arte contemporanea in essere da più di dieci anni alla Vigna delle Arti, curata dal « Laboratorio delle Arti » di Piacenza.

Presiederà lo stesso Enrico Sgorbati, titolare di Torre Fornello, nonché raffinato collezionista, coadiuvato dai giurati:
Maria Rosa Franzin – Artista orafa, Vicepresidente di AGC Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo e Docente all’Istituto d’Arte Pietro Selvatico di Padova
Giulio Manfredi – Maestro orafo, a cui fa capo il noto brand internazionale, che da Milano e da tutto il mondo ama spesso rientrare e mantenere i legami con le terre piacentine d’origine
Carlo Giuseppe Valli – Scrittore (Vini e Miti, 2008 Ed. Cierre – premio Cesare Pavese, Il Vino nella letteratura), consulente e docente in campo enogastronomico, membro dell’Associazione Stampa Agroalimentare Italiana
Graziano Visintin – Artista orafo tra i maggiori esponenti della « Scuola di Padova », Docente all’Istituto d’Arte Pietro Selvatico di Padova
