The Athens Jewelery Week 2017 – 7 exhibitions + Lectures + Workshops- May, 18 – May, 21 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”. Some Alliages actual permanent artists will show their last work during this event : Isabelle Busnel, Michelle Kraemer, Nicole Schuster, Viktoria Muenzker & Yiota Vogli.
