SYMBOLS OF TODAY : FRAGMENTS OF TOMORROW
Jewellery Art Workers (J.A.W), the Association of Greek jewelry designers, presents the Contemporary Jewelry Exhibition S Y M B O L S at the Old Retorts of the Industrial Gas Museum, at Technopolis – City of Athens.
42 Artists – Distinguished Designers participate in a dialogue around contemporary symbolism taking the form of pieces of jewelry, with the use of various materials and mediums.
These pieces of jewelry resist the ravages of time and arrive in the future as fragments carrying coded information – symbols of our times.
The past is reinterpreted, the present is recorded and the messages are carried to the future, using Inspiration as their guide and Art as their vehicle.
Art Video and Performances will be also presented and jewelry workshops and guided tours will take place during the exhibition hours.
