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.
Exhibitions and workshops by craftsmen and artisans from Florence will be presented during Sunday 28th
ALL THE EVENTS WILL BE HOSTED IN THE “OLTRARNO FIORENTINO” AREA
