ATHENS JEWELRY WEEK 2017 / art - jewelry: intersecting spaces

Contemporary jewelry meets the Athenian audience / @ Benaki Museum

Contemporary jewelry meets the Athenian audience in a 4-day art event with international participations.

For a second year in a row, Athens Jewelry Week opens its doors. The objective of this new and dynamic institution is to present to the Greek audience the diversity of contemporary art jewelry, as it has been evolving in Greece and abroad.

AJW 2017 covers four days of exhibitions, lectures and workshops, highlighting contemporary jewelry creators, their art and their authentic work.

The central exhibition entitled Art + Jewelry: Intersecting Spaces aims to present the exceptional work of 48 selected artists. The influential German jewelry maker Peter Bauhuis, invited as a guest artist, will honor the event with his presence, by exhibiting his work in the main exhibition hall and by opening the lectures program.

AJW 2017 also includes 5 group exhibitions that will take places in various venues around Athens, lectures and seminars. The closing of the event will be marked by the awards ceremony. Awards will be given by international institutions/entities that are active in the contemporary jewelry field.
