Giovedì 7 dicembre alle 18.00, presso D.d'ARTE a viale Giuseppe Mazzini 1 a Roma, si inaugura la mostra indossArte. Opere d'arte da indossare.
Oggetti d'artista stravaganti, eleganti, esagerati, provocatori – soprattutto gioielli, ma anche cappelli, scarpe ed altri accessori d'abbigliamento – saranno protagonisti di una mostra coinvolgente e interattiva durante il lungo fine settimana dell'Immacolata Concezione. La serata dell'inaugurazione sarà arricchita da performance live e aperitif art.
A richiesta gli accessori potranno essere indossati per il piacere di vestire un pezzo unico d'artista.

È la prima edizione di un progetto ideato da Francesca Barbi Marinetti e Lucia Collarile che indaga sul valore artistico di opere d'arte portatili e portabili. Una querelle stimolante che da sempre si pone tra arte e artigianato, tra arti maggiori e arti minori, tra materiali nobili e poveri, tra limiti e concessioni nella vestibilità e originalità creativa.
IndossArte afferma la supremazia dell'Arte su ogni ideazione e creazione. Ripensa la questione del ruolo dell'autore e dell'oggetto in quanto tale, grazie al lavoro di artisti temerari prestati alla progettazione e all'azione secondo le formule tipiche dell'artigianato e di artigiani che coraggiosamente esplorano in modo creativo settori della percezione visiva e sensoriale ascritta solitamente alla sfera dell'arte. Afferma che indossare un'opera d'arte sia un privilegio unico che consente a chi ne usufruisce di esporla sul proprio corpo, percepirla in maniera totale e multisensoriale, interpretarla, diventarne parte e quindi anche trasformarsi e trasformarne il significato.

In mostra saranno visibili e indossabili gioielli, cappelli, scarpe, abiti e accessori vari. Vi saranno opere di artisti diversi, protagonisti dell'arte contemporanea, della moda e dell'artigianato come Giulia Barela, Ludovica Cirillo in arte byLUDO, Mauro Carrazza, Gisella Gatto, Barbara Guidi, Barbara Salvucci, Elio Varuna e Elena Spirito in arte Vanzuk. Mentre gli artisti Gerry Turano, Flaminia Violati e Carlotta Schiavio in arte YaTii, hanno trasformato, con il loro intervento artistico, alcune borse della linea Fruit Bag di REGENESI – brand del lusso sostenibile, partner del progetto indossArte, che realizza oggetti di design e accessori moda attraverso la trasformazione innovativa di materiali post-consumo.
Altro importante partner del progetto è MyDay-ByDay di Laura Helena Aureli, un riferimento per il gioiello contemporaneo d'artista in l'Italia, che presenta per questa prima edizione di indossArte una selezione di opere realizzate da 18 jewel designer provenienti da tutto il mondo.

Di molti artisti saranno esposti anche altri lavori “non indossabili” ma interessanti per la comprensione, oltre che della loro arte, della creazione delle opere per indossArte.

Una valida collaborazione e contributo viene offerta da Raffaella Giuliani con Cierredata, che cura per la manifestazione il progetto grafico e la sezione shop di indossArte su ddarte.com, nonché da Tina Vannini con Il Margutta Veggy Food & Art con il suo rinomato aperitif art offerto nel corso dell'inaugurazione.

Mo+Mo
disegni e sculture di Carlo Mo gioielli della figlia Francesca

Venerdì 27 maggio alle ore 17,00, presso il Salone Teresiano della Biblioteca di Pavia, sarà inaugurata la mostra MO+MO, scultura e design a cura di Antonella Campagna e Paola Mo.
Saranno esposti quaranta disegni e studi più una serie di piccole sculture e bozzetti dello scultore Carlo Mo, insieme a una ventina di gioielli d'arte della nota designer Francesca Mo. La mostra resterà aperta fino al 4 di giugno. Orari: da lunedì a venerdì 8.30-18.30 /sabato 8.30-13.30 ingresso libero.

MO + MO è l'antica “arte di bottega” rinascimentale. Esiste uno stretto anzi strettissimo legame tra scultura, pittura e design da sempre. Spesso s'intersecano, anzi, un tempo, il confine era per nulla segnato. Ed è proprio seguendo questo filo che è nata questa mostra. Padre e figlio collaboravano, ognuno nei propri campi, alla realizzazione di oggetto nel tempo della bottega e non della loro vita. Dunque una mostra antica in uno dei luoghi d'incanto d'Italia: il Salone Teresiano custodito, come incastonato, tra le mura di una delle più antiche e prestigiose università.

È una mostra caleidoscopica dove il probabile diviene improbabile e il suo contrario. Microfusioni in acciaio delle grandi sculture di Mo in giro per il mondo vicino a orecchini fatti sabbia già esposti al Poldi Pezzoli. Disegni su carta fatta a mano accanto a pietre riparate con lamine d'oro e omini che vi si arrampicano. Piccolissimi libri che divengono gioielli e cavatappi che sono bozzetti di sculture. Un anello che ti dice “yes or no” e un San Giorgio che uccide il Drago e insieme si trasformano. Un Luna Park dell'arte giocato sul filo dell'equilibrio della forma e della poesia. E, perché no, un dialogo silenzioso tra un padre e una figlia.

A presentare la mostra: Mino Milani, l'architetto Filippo Tartaglia e il gallerista Michele Subert.

Opens on Thursday, October 26, 7 p.m.
Pretty on Pink — Éminences Grises in Jewellery
Grey is conspicuously unobtrusive. Different mindsets are manifested in this

colour spectrum: refined understatement in diamond jewellery, or dispassio-
nate sobriety and rationality in Art Deco jewellery or in pieces designed in

the tradition of the Bauhaus. Like no other colour, grey represents the mo-
dern era, whose most characteristic materials, i.e. concrete and steel, are

also grey. In particular contemporary jewellery artists have meanwhile tur-
ned their attention to this colour spectrum, which is in stark contrast to

pink. With its vibrant chromatic depth, the latter immediately demands our
attention. In the hue of Tyrian purple, it once demonstrated both secular
and ecclesiastical power, and in contemporary fashion, pink has even been
used intentionally to shock. Effectively contrasting the jewellery creations
on display, this colour will be highlighting them quite »indiscreetly«.

CORPO, MOVIMENTO, STRUTTURA. IL GIOIELLO CONTEMPORANEO E LA SUA COSTRUZIONE
A cura di Domitilla Dardi

Connessioni, rapporti, equilibri di pesi e volumi: un lessico comune condiviso da gioiello e architettura
Un gioiello è un oggetto che si presta a molte letture e la prima è tradizionalmente quella estetica, che riguarda tanto la bellezza dell'opera in sé quanto l'idea del bello che un monile riesce a veicolare e trasmettere. Accanto a questo piano esiste una ricerca strutturale del gioiello in cui a valere è la complessità della struttura e quindi l'idea e la forma. Qui il disegno trova molti punti in comune con l'architettura: sebbene con finalità e scale diverse, gioiello e architettura si relazionano entrambe con il corpo in movimento, al quale rispondono con una struttura in grado di “abitarlo” o di fargli abitare uno spazio.
La mostra racconta questo legame tra piccola e grande scala indagando, in maniera inedita, alcune particolarità del mondo del gioiello contemporaneo messe in evidenza nelle opere di grandi maestri internazionali: Babetto, Bielander, Britton, Cecchi, Chang, Sajet.
I gioielli vengono presentati sempre insieme ai disegni preparatori in modo da sottolineare il processo di costruzione del lavoro progettuale e l'esecuzione di pezzi unici e serie limitate, completamente differente dalla gioielleria industriale. Accanto a questi è esposta una selezione di modelli di architettura provenienti dalle collezioni del MAXXI Architettura che reagiscono con il gioiello come pure suggestioni strutturali, seguendo le declinazioni formali e i registri espressivi dei designer.

Dopo la positiva esperienza del primo anno, ESH Gallery dedica l'ultima mostra del 2017 alle creazioni di artisti e designer del gioiello che attraverso il loro lavoro indagano i concetti assoluti di spazio e natura, temi di riferimento nella ricerca estetica della galleria.

Un'occasione imperdibile per vedere esposta una selezione unica di gioielli contemporanei pensata per tutte le età e senza barriere di prezzo: opere d'arte, piccole sculture da indossare tutti i giorni o per eventi speciali, scelte per la loro estetica e lavorazione. Saranno proposte, infatti, creazioni dall'inequivocabile valore e significato artistico, in cui centrale sarà il valore aggiunto del fatto a mano e l'attenzione ai materiali utilizzati.

Grazie ad una particolare affinità con le arti decorative, il desiderio di ESH Gallery è, infatti, da sempre lavorare con artisti che si esprimono muovendosi verso l'indistinguibile confine tra art e craft, dando particolare rilievo ai materiali, come il vetro, la ceramica, il metallo e i materiali di natura organica, in una commistione tra ricerca contemporanea e background tradizionale.

East Meets West — Exquisite Treasures from the Aga Khan Collection

Since classical antiquity, the mutual fascination between the Orient and
the Occident has repeatedly brought about new art forms. In the Art Deco

period, for example, exotic ornamental designs and calligraphies from Chi-
na, Japan or the Middle East lent themselves perfectly to fulfilling people's

desire for decorative and unusual luxury. Also, the 1920s were characterized
by technological progress and rapid societal changes, both of which were

reflected in the jewellery and the arts of that era in the shape of exuber-
antly exotic ornamentation and colours, wedded to clear-cut shapes and

austere materials. The vanity and cigarette cases, clocks and watches, plus
the pieces of jewellery, from the Prince and Princess Sadruddin Aga Khan
Collection bear eloquent witness to this. The collection originated when,

one Christmas, the Prince gave his wife a superbly ornamented case by Car-
tier as a gift. This was the beginning of what evolved into a comprehensive

collection comprising creations by Van Cleef & Arpels, Bulgari, Boucheron,

Lacloche Frères and the selfsame Cartier company, all of which evoke associ-
ations with glamorous dinner parties in exotically decorated apartments or

smoky night clubs.
A magnificent book about the collection was published in New York in 2017
under the title of »Jeweled Splendors of the Art Deco Era. The Prince and
Princess Dadruddin Aga Khan Collection«.

2017 Beijing International Jewelry Art

Exhibition

I. Overview

Culture is the soul of a country and a nationality. The past five years have seen rapid
development of China's cultural undertakings and culture industry: more and more
Chinese stories have received great claim from the people across the world, more and
more Chinese writers and artists have won international grand prizes, and Chinese
culture has become a brilliant emblem of China that is rising in the world arena. Thanks
to strong confidence in culture and open-door policy of innovative and shared cultural
development, China's cultural construction is bursting with vitality, and a path is paved
for Chinese stories to spread to the world. The theme of the 2017 Beijing International
Jewelry Art Exhibition is “parallel”; and the exhibition is intended to interchange and
integrate Oriental and Western artistic creation concepts and under pluralistic
environment, to communicate cultural trend, to gather domestic & foreign experts,
scholars and elites in the foreign jewelry industry to discuss the internationalization of
jewelry design education and the jewelry design industry, to promote exchange of
design ideas between China and other countries, and to facilitate cultural creation and
cultural development by practice and exchange.

Entries are invited for the inaugural open international exhibition 'Response to Place', which will be the centrepiece of a dynamic new bi-annual event - the Craft Biennale Scotland.

The first Craft Biennale Scotland will launch in Edinburgh, Scotland's capital city and renowned world leader in international arts festivals, with a major exhibition at the prestigious City Art Centre in 2018.

The exhibition will be selected by four international curators: Grace Cochrane (Australia), Hyeyoung Cho (South Korea), Lars Sture (Norway) and Maeve Toal (Scotland).

The vision for Craft Biennale Scotland is to create an exciting new platform for discovering and presenting the very best international craft, showing ambitious works by leading and emerging artists, and to provide an experimental space for imaginative new ways to experience and enjoy craft as a fascinating, thought provoking and inspirational art form.

The exhibition will enable artists to have their work recognised for excellence within an international context. It will be attended by Scottish, UK and international audiences, and will offer an exciting platform for discussion and critical debate.

In order to best represent the broad diversity of terms used by those working in craft around the world, all exhibitors will be termed 'artists'. This approach allows us to welcome entries from crafts practitioners, makers, designers, designer-makers, craft artists, material based artists, and those whose work is affiliated to specific disciplines such as jewellery, metalwork, ceramics, furniture, weaving, textile art, costume, millinery, glass, mosaic etc.


Artistic Concept: 'Response to Place'

Artists are invited to submit work that responds to a place where they live, remember or imagine, or that contributes to individual identity or nationality, and ways in which we create and express our 'place' in the world.

Responses may be overlapping and multi-faceted, and might for example, include visual or other sensory responses to their environment; local materials and indigenous craft practices; cultural and ceremonial traditions; experiences related to migration, political or social upheaval; local and social history; geography; archaeology or how particular forms have developed through interaction with materials or have been designed to perform a particular function.

The exhibition will celebrate the values of crafts practice in the 21st century by bringing together work from around the world, that expresses imaginative contemporary ideas through an understanding of materials, skills and traditions, while at times drawing on references to art, design and industry, and old and new technologies.

We welcome inspirational works which aim to challenge perceptions of craft, whether through scale, technique, design, interpretation of materials or display, including installations and the incorporation of multi-media.


Selection and Exhibition

The selection of work for the exhibition will be made by a panel of four international curators:

Grace Cochrane is an independent curator, writer and historian of contemporary art and design. Based in Australia, she worked at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney from 1988 to 2005, latterly as Senior Curator of Australian Decorative Arts and Design, and is the author of 'The Crafts Movement in Australia: A History', published by NSW University Press, 1992.

Hyeyoung Cho is Art Director of Korean Craft & Design Foundation and Korean Representative, Tresor Contemporary Craft, Basel, Switzerland. She has curated numerous projects worldwide including the Cheongju International Craft Biennale 2015.

Lars Sture is Curator for Norwegian Crafts where he is responsible for the international exhibitions programmes. As a freelance curator and artist for more than 25 years, he has organised a broad range of exhibitions both in Norway, Iceland and Internationally.

Maeve Toal is Curator: Exhibitions at the City Art Centre, Edinburgh, responsible for a wide range of exhibitions, largely in partnership with contemporary artists, makers and leading cultural organisations. She was a panel member on the Edinburgh Visual Arts and Crafts Awards Scheme from 2004 to 2012.


The selection panel will consider the conceptual, visual and physical quality of the work submitted, alongside written responses to the theme. They will then make a collective evaluation of selected works by identifying both divergent and common interpretations of 'Response to Place'. This will inform how the exhibition is curated and how the different threads are presented within the exhibition.
