MAD: Think Again: New Latin American Jewelry


Miguel Luciano


The Museum of Arts and Design presents the first comprehensive overview of contemporary art jewelry from Latin America to be seen in the United States. The exhibition was organized by Otro Diseño Foundation for Cultural Cooperation and Development, and curated by Valeria Vallarta Siemelink.

Mirla Fernandez and Elisa Gulminelli

Think Again showcases more than eighty works by over fifty Latin American jewelry artists/designers including Mirla Fernandes and Claudia Cucchi (Brazil); Valentina Rosenthal (Chile); Elisa Gulminelli and Francisca Kweitel (Argentina); Jorge Manilla and Alcides Fortes (Mexico); and Miguel Luciano (Puerto Rico).

Think Again: Latin American Jewelry encompasses a passion for jewelry making in South America, Mexico, and the Caribbean Islands where contemporary jewelry artists are inspired by their own cultural and artistic environment while reflecting the rapidly expanding international community of avant-garde artists. In their jewelry making, each artist/designer in the exhibition explores fresh ideas, innovative techniques and non-traditional materials. The contemporary works will be shown in context with a group of historical works primarily from Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Mexico and Cuba, to further enhance the visitor's understanding and viewing experience.

This is a diverse and inspiring show. I encourage anyone in the NYC area to visit these otherwise hard to see works.

Artist Interviews-Where are you going? Where have you been? How did you get there?

About this blog--As a recent graduate and currently in a one-year residency the question of what’s next and how to get there is always on my mind. For this blog I will be interviewing artists who have taken varying paths and pursued different careers in or out of the arts to see what they are doing now and the steps they took to get there. Special Note--I want this to be a way to share how we are all trying to figure out the paths to what’s next and where to go, not answers or things to do, but…See More
