Promoting Contemporary Art Jewelry since 2009

The Munich Jewelry Week 2019 is about to start with more than one hundred exhibitions and parallel events (lectures, fair, etc…) all across the city. For me, and I suppose for some of you too, it will not be easy to make the right choice, especially if we have a short stay in the Bavarian capital. Official program in hands, not obvious to guess the best exhibitions to see. Here below our selection, a must be seen, from confirmed artists to brand new talents. Enjoy !


Information Point, LOVAAS, Fürstenstraße 6. Wed-Sat 10:00-18:00. Special events: Wed 16:00-18:30 ‘Magical Recall’ ritual.

Fri 12:00-14:00 ’26 Ottos’ discussion. 14:00-16:00 ‘Accessibility in Contemporary Jewelry Academia’ round table.

RCA’s hub breaks free from the constraints of white-walled gallery traditions, rejecting the formal exhibition tropes and tired questions that inevitable come with every MJW. Aren’t you sick of that stuff by now? Taking a wholistic look and tackling varied facets of the field and beyond, we will be facilitating participatory programming with themes that run the gamut from accessibility of academia, to tactility and touch in the context of a gallery space, to pagan rituals, and a reading group on being and selfhood. There will also be a breakfast, a sale, and a film screening that doubles as nap time and MJW respite. Isn’t it time for a change?

The group of 12 authors has chosen, once again, to follow the path of “infuences”. The theme last year was working on how the environment affects one´s work, this year develops towards the more emotional sphere of the individual. Exploring passion in uences our imagination. Each author searches for his way to convey the idea of passion through his work. Choice of subject matter, materials, colors and of forms connects the expression and personal character of each artist. Traditions, innovations, cultures and origins all impact the creation of works.

It was 5 years ago that Annea Lounatvuori and Christine Jalio first appeared at Munich Jewellery Week with Hatara, which makes this year a special anniversary for us. Hatara has certainly grown over this time, from originally 2 to the 8 artists that make up Hatara today. We are: Christine Jalio, Annea Lounatvuori, Helmi Lindblom, Melina Lindroos, Wiebke Pandikow, Ginta Grube, Jelizaveta Suska and Malene Kastalje. This special anniversary called for a special project. How to connect 8 people with so many different styles? How to show change over time, time perception, which has been our ongoing theme from the start? We decided to do a little experiment which we call `the travelling jewellery piece`. All of us -smaller and bigger groups, have worked together on several jewellery pieces. In this experiment: One of us would start a piece, then send it off to the next artist, who would add to it and edit it, and then send it off again, to be added to and edited on further. It was a refreshing experience, but it wasn’t easy and working with these pieces has forced everyone to look at our creative process in a new light. We won’t promise that all of these pieces are good or even make sense, but we can assure you, they are interesting in their craziness. Come have a look at our hybrids, our chimeras, our beloved mutts! Aside from the joined pieces every artist will also present their current work alongside the travelling pieces.

17H00-21H00 Le bijou still a risky business. Institut Français 1st floor, Kaulbachstraße 13. Opening: Thu 14.03. 17:00-21:00. Regular hours: Wed 14:00-19:00, Thu 11:00-21:00Fri-Sun 11:00–19:00. >>34
Le bijou still a risky business (Jewellery – still a risky business) is a contemporary jewellery exhibition brought together by a team of students from ENSA Limoges (National School of Art). The event will take place in the Institut Français of München, from March 13th to 17th, 2019, on the occasion of the ” Schmuck, Munich jewellery week “. Le bijou still a risky business refers to Paul Derrez’ exhibition named ” Risky Business ” which he presented in his own gallery – Gallery Ra – in 1996. Indeed, Paul Derrez show his own pieces, taking on – artistically speaking – his homosexuality. Twenty-three years later, the taboo of sex is no more convened, but both the sensitive matter of the price of a piece of art – through the exhibition En quête du juste prix (Looking for the right price) – and the way jewellery is thought in Art Schools – with the POPshow exhibition -, which are both reunited under the name of: Le bijou still a risky business.
