Over the last thirty years\, t he field of contemporary jewellery has been evolving at an extremely rapid pace. While still largely unknown to the general public\, this relatively n ew field has been growing on the fringes of traditional jewellery\, drawing emerging artists whose innovative approaches contribute to enhancing the p ractice as well as its international exposure.


This special exhibition\, entitled Dialogue\, brings tog ether the work of 22 young designers from Germany\, Australia\, Denmark\, t he United States\, Japan\, the Netherlands\, Sweden and Canada. The range o f this creative offering provides a glimpse of the great artistic and expre ssive potential of the field of contemporary jewellery. The collection expl ores the art of shaping materials\, highlights the materials used\, demonst rates originality and experimentation\, reflects the spirit of the times an d a global vision\, but also calls into question the craft and the intrinsi c value of jewellery. The exhibition’s title is an expression of the artist ’s dialogue with the material and the concept\, the work and the viewer.
