ATHENS JEWELRY WEEK (AJW) 2017 – general schedule – Athens (GR) – 18-21 May 2017


AJW 2017 on Facebook

AJW 2017

Contemporary jewelry meets the Athenian audience in a 4-day art event with international participations.

For a second year in a row, Athens Jewelry Week opens its doors to welcome its guests. The objective of this new and dynamic institution is to present to the Greek audience the trends and the rich diversity of contemporary art jewelry, as they have been evolving in Greece and abroad.

In the framework of the international jewelry scene, the organization constitutes the Greek presence on the world map of equivalent art events with an ever increasing interest. AJW 2017 covers four days of exhibitions, lectures and workshops, highlighting contemporary jewelry creators, their art and their authentic work.

The central exhibition titled “Art + Jewelry: Intersecting Spaces is hosted this year by the Benaki Museum (Pireos Annexe) and it aims to present the exceptional work of 48 selected artists. The influential German jewelry maker Peter Bauhuis, invited as a guest artist, will honor the event with his presence, by exhibiting his work in the main exhibition hall and by opening the lectures program.

AJW 2017 also includes 5 group exhibitions that will take places in various venues around Athens, lectures and seminars. The closing of the event will be marked by the awards ceremony. Awards will be given by international institutions/entities that are active in the contemporary jewelry field.

Athens Jewelry Week – organized by Anticlastics, a group of contemporary jewelry creators – aims, among other things, at introducing the art of contemporary jewelry to the broader public. It is addressed to artists and art aficionados of all ages and backgrounds, but mostly to all those who love contemporary art jewelry and want to learn more about it. Because -as the poet W.B. Yeats would say- « The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper ».

* el MEH realizará el taller ‘Pequejoyeros’ para conocer qué es una joya y cuándo nuestros antepasados comenzaron a fabricarlas. Esta actividad, en la que los participantes fabricarán sus propias joyas, se desarrollará los días 27, 28 y 29 de julio, de 11 a 12.15 horas, para niños y niñas de entre 4 y 7 años y los mismos días para menores de de 8 a 12 años de 12.30 a 13.45 horas.

* El MEH organizará la conferencia ‘La joya, más allá de la belleza’, por parte de Sara Serna, comisaria de la exposición, quien dará a conocer el objetivo y resultados de esta muestra, dando a conocer cómo todo el proceso creativo de la joyería actual lleva detrás una investigación, una innovación y un estudio que, en este caso, nos remite a nuestro pasado más remoto. La charla será el jueves, 22 de septiembre, en el Salón de Actos del MEH. La ponente invitará a reflexionar sobre las joyas en relación con materiales y utensilios prehistóricos que se asemejan en formas y texturas a obras contemporáneas.

WORKSHOP : ‘Exhibitionism(s)’ – St Lucas University, Antwerp (BE) – 24-28 Mars 2014

You are invited to participate in the Masterclass « Exhibitionism(s) » by Benjamin Lignel

 MASTERCLASS ‘Exhibitionism(s)’ BY BENJAMIN LIGNEL24.March.2014 - 28.March.2014St Lucas University College of Art & Design Antwerp

Place: St Lucas University College of Art & Design Antwerp
(Kerkstraat 45, Antwerp, Belgium)
Management: Hilde De Decker
24.March.2014 – 28.March.2014

deadline: 20.Feb.2014

Any exhibition must contend with the physical constraints of the medium you work in and with the ongoing discussion the wider field of art is having regarding display conventions: less critical than complicit, current curatorial trends treat those conventions like a toolbox of endless combinatory possibilities. As a result, exhibition set-ups dialogue with their heritage (the white-cube, the wunderkammer), incorporate strategies borrowed from other fields in the distribution business (the shop, the vending machine) and employ various penetration methods (installation, occupation, infiltration).

Meanwhile, the last decade has seen the rise to prominence of the curator, who takes an ever more active (and playful) role in determining how we engage with art. Whether they obscure or activate the intention of the artist, their curatorial strategies have a huge effect on how we perceive art, and give it value. However, ‘impactful’ does not always translate into ‘meaningful’, and we often wonder how much control and understanding curators (and artist-curators) have over the environments they set-up, and whether those environments actually do the work a favor.

During this workshop, the participants will investigate, separately, two of the exhibition formats they will encounter in their career: the group show, and the solo show.

No longer a second choice, the group show – when done well – can lend itself to ‘creating’ something that is more that the simple addition of unrelated parts. It can define the contours of a new genre (like Germano Celan’s Arte Povera show, and closer to us, the YBA’s Sensation show), revisit and modernize an old one (Les Magiciens de la Terre) or become a tool to research an idea (Nul si découvert). The challenges facing collective projects have to do with working from a given (in this case, a diverse group of makers) and reconciling various artistic ambitions under a single umbrella. Group shows are also human adventures: their success hangs on our ability to work together towards different goals.

The solo show, on the other hand, presumably lets the artist have total control of how, what, and where: there is more freedom there. The challenges are also different, and have to do with putting out something that is ‘proportioned’ to your intentions, and manufacturing an experience from the few constraints that do exist (the space where you exhibit).

The participants will start working in groups of two: they will plan, and design solo exhibitions in two adjoining rooms of the same museum/gallery/alternative space. After their projects have been presented and discussed, they will then be asked to work in groups of eight (half the total number of students) to conceive, design and explain two group shows.In both cases, we will look at how the participants’ projects articulate their conceptual allegiance to art, fashion, design or the applied, and what mediation strategy they use to put their message across.

Three guests curators will come during the week to attend the de-briefing and discussion sessions.

What to bring:  Need to have a finished body of work/installation project etc. that will serve as ‘material’ for the curatorial research (you will be contacted concerning the preparation)

Requirements: A good understanding and spoken level of English / Master level or graduated from a similar education

Dates: Monday 24th to Friday 28th March.2014 at 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. (except Monday 2 p.m. – 7 p.m.)

Workshop « Transformaction » – Maria Cristina Bellucci & Arianna Pittini – Rome (Italy) – 5-10 Aout 2013

Maria Cristina Bellucci workshop : Workshop abstract

We are ever more surrounded by utilitarian objects in our daily life; these objects represent the things that make up our individual worlds.
By changing the way we look at things around us, we will activate our creativity and expand our conception of the everyday.


Maria Cristina Bellucci workshop
The objective of the workshop is to revisit the ordinary objects, deconstruct and decontextualize them in order to create new forms, change their original purpose and give them new meanings.
“Transformaction” workshop intend to bring together jewellery artists, designers and other playful people to re-imagine the ordinary, experience new creative opportunities and create challenging contemporary jewellery objects.


Organized by :

Maria Cristina Bellucci:   The work I’ve been producing over the last years explores ordinary objects and ways of taking them out of their ordinary context;  by transforming readymades I extend and reconfigure their properties.  I find that an interesting way to reflect on perception and sensitivity and work on this qualities.

Arianna Pittini:   having travelled to England to study , I gained a Bachelor degree and Master degree in jewellery design.  Contemporary Jewellery fascinates me; I enjoy investigating how worthless materials may be ascribed value when placed in the context of jewellery.  My approach to materials and practice is intuitive, I enjoy using a unprecious materials, in particular paper, fabric, iron. I have taught Art and Design in England and I am lecturing  in “jewellery design”  in an Art Accademy in Rome.
