AGC - JJDA PROJECT
“DIALOGHI” 対話 ITALY – JAPAN
Curated: AGC Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo Italy
JJDA Japan Jewellery Designers Association
This project began to develop in December 2012, in Tokyo, during the meeting of the two Chairperson of AGC E JJDA who, by mutual agreement, decided to initiate the enterprise in 2015, the year that marks the 50th anniversary of JJDA and the 10th anniversary since the foundation of AGC.
So "Dialogues" among the members of the two associations began with each artist sending his counterpart an image related to the artistic culture of his/her own country, as inspiration material for the creation of a piece of jewelry, establishing that, at the end of the exhibition, the participants would donate the piece to the Japanese/Italian colleague and vice-versa.
The exhibition at the Italian Institute of Culture in Tokyo, from 3rd to 11th July 2015, was made possible thanks to the cooperation of many friends and members of the two associations, and above all, to the hospitality of the Director of the Italian Cultural Institute, Mr. Giorgio Amitrano.
The exhibition will take place in:
