23.11 - 15.10.2010
Now in its sixth year, the exhibition ArtOrnamento at Alternatives Gallery in Rome will present 10 ex-students from the contemporary jewellery School Alchimia in Florence, one of the leading Schools on an international level in the field. Alchimia is a starting point for innovation as well as a preserver of traditional goldsmithing techniques.
The 10 participants in this year's exhibition studied under the most important contemporary jewellery artists on an international level. The jewellery in this exhibition aims to explore the relationship between the body and the finished piece, each artist interpreting a personal idea of what jewellery is today.
This exhibition aims to show the latest research carried out in the experimental jewellery field, pieces that will show an innovative and diverse approach to the more traditional concept of what jewellery is or may be considered.
This year, for the first time, one of the pieces shown in the exhibition will be purchased by the gallery and will go to form part of the ArtOrnamento Collection. The winner will be announced in the catalogue.
