Florence Jewellery Week
24-28 of May, 2017
Connecting worlds. Artistic research, crafts, design, new technologies.
Dialogue and the confrontation between tradition and contemporary research
in jewellery are the focus of the FJW 2017 project.
The exhibitions and all other moments of the event will place the emphasis on the interactions between tradition and artistic research, manual skills and new technologies, and between the different meanings and symbolical values that jewellery can take on in different cultural and geographical environments. The project includes exhibitions by contemporary artists from various countries, lectures and presentations, workshops led by invited artists/lecturers/curators.
