Scandinavian studio jewelry is inconceivable without her and her works. As early as the beginning of the 1960s Tone Vigeland’s jewelry objects were routinely included in what are today legendary publications and exhibitions, such as the International Exhibition of Modern Jewellery held 1961 in the Goldsmiths Hall London, which first familiarized the public with the emerging art style of studio jewelry. Now, to mark her 80th birthday, Die Neue Sammlung is devoting its first solo exhibition in Europe outside Scandinavia to the grand dame of Scandinavian studio jewelry – 50 years after Vigeland’s first solo exhibition in 1967 in the Kunstnerneshus in Oslo.

With their flowing shapes Tone Vigeland’s pieces generally fit snugly despite being made of metal. Vigeland oxidizes the light shiny silver until it is as black as iron. Through contact with the skin the silver regains its play with the light, and lent and dreamt of metallic color variations. Every piece becomes individualized through virtue of being worn. Though they stand out for their size and volume, the objects consist of an incredibly large number of tiny hand worked parts – minute pipes twisted from silver wire, precisely cut rectangular and round discs or tiny pellets and rings – so cleverly joined together as to be invisible to the naked eye. Tone Vigeland’s art on the body appears simultaneously modern and archaic.
About the artist:
Born 1938 into one of the most famous artist families of Norway Vigeland’s artistic training began 1955 at the Statens Håndverk-og Kunstindustriskole Oslo (today Kunsthøgskolen in Oslo, National Academy of the Arts). To learn goldsmith work she moved 1957 to the Oslo Vocational School. In 1958 she joined the avant-garde artist cooperative Plus in Frederikstad, where several of the works she designed as a student were produced in series. Earrings worked from a single silver loop, whose restrained simplicity and linearity was typical for the style in Scandinavia after World War II, were successfully produced until 1985. In 1961, Tone Vigeland opened her own workshop, and began producing one-offs. Since then she has produced many world-famous items of jewelry which have been honored with numerous distinctions. These are now on show for the first time in a solo exhibition featuring 150 of her works.
  In a high-profile exhibition in Galerie Riis 1995 in Oslo, Vigeland took an important step into a different dimension – namely art in architectural space – and simultaneously a move away from decorative art that cites the human body. This move from the body to free space seems a huge one, and yet was quite a logical step for Tone Vigeland.
The very highest distinction have accompanied the artistic oeuvre of this extraordinary Norwegian artist: the Prince Eugen Medal from Sweden in 1988, appointment as Commander of the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav in 1996, the Anders Jahre Art Prize and in 2008 she received the Golden Ring of Honor from the Association for Goldsmiths’ Art in Hanau.
  The exhibition was realized with the kind support of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Oslo, the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Berlin, the Royal Norwegian Consulate in Munich and the Danner-Stiftung, and in cooperation with Norwegian Crafts, Oslo.
In January 2018 the exhibition will be on show in Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum in Trondheim.

Born 1936 in Mansfield, Ohio, and a resident of New York since 1960, American Thomas Gentille is a leading studio jewelry artist not just in the United States but in the world as a whole. To mark his 80th birthday in 2016, Die Neue Sammlung decided to invite the co-founder of studio jewelry in America to stage the first comprehensive exhibition on his oeuvre. On display will be 180 items of jewelry, drawings and a film conceived and realized by the artist about the two most important cities in his life, namely New York and Munich.
He favors innovative plastics, solid aluminum and a wide variety of woods, not to mention papier-mâché, sawdust, silk threads, old glass spheres hand blown in Bohemia and air – over gold, silver and precious stones.
 Gentille is one of the first American studio jewelry artists to employ such non-precious materials so consistently – and he did so from 1960 onwards, calling into question the value of precious metals in how jewelry is designed and estimated. He only uses high-quality gold for the rear of the brooch. For Thomas Gentille the emphasis is always irrevocably on the piece itself, its artistic statement and its quality. Every item is a one-off, be it a brooch, necklace or bracelet, and a masterpiece of craftsmanship, unique in its affiliation with sculpture and architecture. For this reason, Gentille refuses to date his works, as this might make his older items possibly appear more valuable than younger ones.
His works with an eggshell overlay are famous. Using this mysterious method and even without employing the old Asian lacquer technique he produces a krakelée surface on his works. Gentille explains that it takes years of experimentation and practice with the technique until you finally grasp the “soul of the material”.

during SCHMUCK 2015 – EXPO ‘Anton Cepka – Kinetischer Schmuck’ – Die Neue Sammlung /International Design Museum, Munich (DE) – 14 Mars-7 Juin 2015

«Anton Cepka – Kinetischer Schmuck»

ANTON CEPKA – KINETIC JEWELRY Anton Cepka – Kinetic Jewelry – brooch (detail)

The jewelry and object artist Anton Cepka is one of the most important jewelry makers of the 20th century. Born in 1936 in Sulekovo, Czechoslovakia – now Slovakia – Cepka was a leading exponent of the modern jewelry after World War II. Today he is respected as the doyen of both Slovakian and Czech jewelry artists. Thanks to a formal language reminiscent of Constructivism, he remained untroubled by affairs of state over many years – unlike many fellow artists.
Silver, optical glass and modern acrylic glass are Anton Cepka’s preferred materials. Out of these, brooches and pendants take shape which embody novel spatial ideas. Tending at first towards relief, they are later conceived fully in the round. Then the surprise – the elements of movement and light are added, introducing the concept of kinetic art to the art of jewellery for the first time.
The actual construction of the objects demonstrates the high degree of craftsmanship which is intrinsic to all of Cepkas’ work.
Thanks to many lenders, both private and institutional, from Germany and abroad, it is possible for the first time to show around 180 decorative objects by Anton Cepka, from the period between 1963 and 2005, in a single exhibition.
The exhibition takes place under the auspices of the Minister of Culture of the Slovak Republic and is supported by he Slovakian Embassy in Berlin, the Slovakian Consulate General in Munich, Arnoldsche Art Publishers, Stuttgart, Danner Stiftung in Munich and Deedie Rose, USA.

EXPO ‘Danner Rotunde. Neu Kuratiert von Otto Künzli’ – Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum, Munich (DE) – 14 Mars 2014 – 14 Mars 2015

Danner Rotunde. Neu Kuratiert von Otto Künzli

Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum
(Munich, Germany)
14-Mar-2014 – 14-Mar-2015
Danner Rotunde. Neu Kuratiert von Otto Künzli

In 2014 ten years of jewellery in the Pinakothek der Moderne are celebrated with a new, ‘revisited’ exhibition in the Danner Rotunda – open to the public as of March 15.

Since 2004 Die Neue Sammlung has incorporated contemporary jewellery in the Pinakothek der Moderne in its permanent display in the Danner Rotunda as well as in temporary exhibitions. As such, one of the most multifaceted artistic forms of expression today is permanently being presented in a museum of this type for the first time alongside art, architecture, graphic works and design.

The Danner Rotunda forms a central core in which exhibits by more than one hundred jewellery artists from around the world are shown – thanks to the commitment of the Danner Foundation with its extensive collection and private donors, as well as gifts from individual jewellery makers.

The first presentation was curated by Prof. Hermann Jünger, the director of the jewellery class at the Munich Art Academy between 1972 and 1990, together with Otto Künzli who took over the professorship in 1991. Through the revamping of the Danner Rotunda in 2010, Karl Fritsch – as the representative of a younger generation – set a completely new accent.

Subsequently Otto Künzli was once again overhauling the collection for the reopening of the Danner Rotunda in 2014 which includes exhibits solely from the Danner Foundation’s and the museum’s own holdings without any loans. Whilst forming a link to the concept of the initial installation, the protagonists in the international world of jewellery are shown in a new light, reciprocal effects can be highlighted, associations provoked and dynamic correlations created between the works.

EXPO ‘Staring : in HINDSIGHT’ – Die Neue Sammlung (Danner-Rotunde), Munich (DE) – 14-20 Mars 2014

SCHMUCK 2014 – Munich – 12-18 Mars 2014

Staring : in HINDSIGHT / SUNY NP METAL

Vernissage 14 Mars, 19 Uhr

STARING: The State University of New York at New Paltz

THE METAL PROGRAM AT THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK AT NEW PALTZ IN COOPERATION WITH DIE NEUE SAMMLUNG – THE INTERNATIONAL DESIGN MUSEUM MUNICH

Designed in response to the physical space that houses the exhibition, in Staring is an exercise in looking, finding, seeing and knowing.
This gallery, informally referred to as ‘under the stairs’, is an interstitial space – formed by the galleries that surround it. It is a negative of a positive, the leftover from a functional form. It lies in-between, forming the way one considers what lies on the other side of the concrete divide, what is revealed and what is hidden. As the risers and runners of multiple staircases surround the viewer, form becomes rhythmic, linear texture, closing in underfoot and overhead. In this space one is simultaneously astonished, disoriented, and mystified. While not originally conceived as an exhibition space, through imaginative thinking it became so.
As a marginal space it is not confined by traditional boundaries or conceptions. This notion of working the margin is akin to the creative strategies taught at New Paltz. Students are expected to engage the traditions of jewelry and hollowware, working within the field’s “architecture”, but not to mimic it; in dialogue through making they question function, value, and relevance to our somatic, conceptual and incorporeal experience. We look backward and forward at the same time, challenging and promoting the practice of making.
Provoked by the space itself, we ask the viewer to consider what it means to be ‘under the stairs’. In a domestic setting it is a space to keep things that are only used occasionally, or perhaps forgotten. It is a psychic space, the space of the Odradek, a space where fear of the unknown is manifested. Within this space discoveries are made, surprises can be found, and occasionally we lose even ourselves.

DIE NEUE SAMMLUNG

Talk on 16 March, 11 Uhr : Pravu Mazumdar: Understanding Surfaces. On Jewellery and Identity.
Pinakothek der Moderne. www.die-neue-sammlung.de

Human surfaces are hybrid objects involving biological and cultural elements like dress, makeup, jewellery, gait, skin, posture, voice. Contemporary societies manifest not only surfaces of products, but also human surfaces functioning as ‘packaging’ and emitting discourses on interiority that place humans within limits and define their individuality.
However, the surfaces are not only readable. They are also produced on a daily basis, not only by the individuals themselves or the global beauty industry at large, but also a whole political machinery of identity, gleaning certain constant, measurable and recognisable traits of individuality from the surface discourses, documenting them in passports and identity cards and locking in modern individuals within the shell of their identity. Modern jewellery – in its contemporary, critical manifestations and its inherent tendency of breaching tradition – can break open the shell of identity and involve individuals in an open play of enhancement and change of masks. It can indeed be understood as a means of counteracting the pressure towards identity in daily life in modern societies.
Such ideas will be presented with examples and images from the area of contemporary jewellery art.

Otto Künzli. The Exhibition

Die Neue SammlungThe International Design Museum Munich

Otto Kunzli  

Born 1948 in Zurich, Switzerland, Otto Künzli is widely considered to be “one of the most intelligent makers in the jewelry world and also one of the most sceptical.” (Ralph Turner).
He has revolutionized modern jewelry art. In the 45-odd years in which he has been addressing the topic of jewelry, Otto Künzli has carved out for himself a quite unique position of far-reaching international influence not only as an artist and a pioneer, but also as an author and mentor. Otto Künzli’s works are based on complex reflection, conceptual and visual imagination. The result: objects with a clear, minimalist appearance, captivatingly crafted to perfection, and highly visible – jewelry that adorns and at the same time possesses an autonomous aesthetic status of its own.
The exhibition of Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich –  will premier in the Schaustelle of Pinakothek der Moderne, and is being realized in close cooperation with the artist. It includes around 150-200 objects and groups of objects from the artist’s various creative phases. This not only includes the jewelry items but also interdisciplinary conceptual works in the areas of photography and installation. By looking back, providing future perspectives and considering where jewelry stands today, the exhibition is essentially the first retrospective of Otto Künzli’s highly diverse work.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a comprehensive monograph. Ed. Florian Hufnagl, Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich. With contributions by Jacqueline Burckhardt, senior editor Parkett, Zurich/New York, Prof. Walter Grasskamp, Academy of Fine Arts Munich, Dr. Pravu Matzumdar, philosopher, among others. Ca. 680 pages. German edition / English edition. Arnoldsche Art Publishers. Design: Frederik Linke.
Further exhibition stops are planned, including the MUDAC Musée de design et d’arts appliqués contemporains, Lausanne (2014); Metropolitan Teien Art Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (2015).

SCHMUCK 2012 – « Ädellab – The State of Things » – Die Neue Sammlung /The International Design Museum, Munich (DE) – 17 Mars-29 Avril 2012

Ädellab – The State of Things. Konstfack Stockholm. Schmuck.
Die Neue Sammlung

The starting point is the human body which is construed as the link between the person’s outer and inner worlds – this concept defines the design approach taken at Ädellab, the Dept. of Jewelry at the Konstfack Stockholm, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design. On the basis of the existing Dept. of Metals, Ädellab was founded in 2004 by Dutch jewelry artist Ruudt Peters and has since 2006 been emphatically influenced by Danish jewelry artist Karen Pontoppidan, who is head of Ädellab by now. The department¿s methodology cuts across both geographical borders and artistic ideas. Ädellab has made a name for itself with a decidedly contemporary approach that explores the possibilities afforded by the medium of jewelry as an important and independent form of expression today. A persons own ideas, observations, fascinations and obsessions can just as much be lent form as can emotions, issues of identity or interpersonal debate.

Karen Pontoppidan comments: ‘The final-year projects undertaken by exam students are not a matter of fulfilling an educational task, but demonstrate the individual need for expression that spawns creation. The artistic expression and therefore the work of the graduates cannot therefore be understood only in terms of intrinsic logic or the wish to understand the existence of the state of things. The work was created because an artist, a human being with experiences, feelings, dreams and failures, wanted the pieces to be.
Exhibition curated by Karen Pontoppidan

 » Ädellab – The State of Things, works by students from Konstfack Stockholm.  This show was set up using red ropes that snaked down a hallway to the back and all became tangled together in one giant ball under a white neon sign. Each rope had the work of one artist so the viewer had to follow the rope along to discover them. There was a great variety and experimentation of materials in these works, I believe there were some made from dried sweet potatoes. »
