Yesterday was the opening of an exhibition with brazilian jewelry artists in the Galerie Beeld & Aambeeld in Enschede, Netherlands.
The curator, Nicole Uurbanus, born in the Netherlands but living in Brazil for a long time, had this great idea of promoting an exhibition with a selection of significant names of Brazilian Contemporary Jewelry scene. I had the pleasure to be invited to be part of it.
The exhibition will be displayed until the end of December and there are photos of some of the pieces at Klimt02
What is great about this, is the iniciative of Uurbanus. She had the idea and fought for it. With a great deal of colaboration of all artists involved (which actually was not so much work), and of course of the gallery, and so she made a great move.
I guess this is a good example to make us think that acting for a group can make things easier to happen.
I am particularly happy with this situation because it was possible to show in the same exhibition collages/drawings and jewelry. As my attitude towards jewelry is very much as an art media, it makes sense to show both together, once they belong to the same series of works.
That is also a possibility to be considered for us all jewelry creators: to involve other medias and to let our other production appear together, if they fit the concept.
And as Uurbanus example, we could start doing more of this kind of events around the world: involving a great initiative, some fedex investment and a dash of mutual collaboration.
