A widespread event involving 750 exhibitors, over 100 locations - prestigious buildings and ateliers high jewelery, goldsmith schools and workshops, fashion boutiques and design showrooms - and more than 150 events, to trace an unprecedented Milanese itinerary of the jewel.
We are talking about Milan Jewelry Week which returns to embellish - of gems but also bodies and memories, inspirations and suggestions - the streets of the Lombard capital from 20 to 23 October 2022.
Exhibitions, talks, conferences and special initiatives, including the MJW Awards, will guide the discovery of the various and unexpected facets of a world so fascinating and yet little known.
The exhibitions and locations
Five group exhibitions scheduled hosted in four locations: Palazzo Bovara, Palazzo dei Giureconsulti, La Pelota and the Galdus school.
Artistar Jewels, dedicated to body ornament, will be staged at Palazzo Bovara. Here, the creations of 230 international artists and designers will shape the suggestions deriving from the contamination between sectors (above all history, art and architecture ) and the expression of emotional states, particularly significant after the pandemic years just spent.
The Jewelry Hub, on the other hand, will welcome 115 High, Fine, Fashion and Vintage Jewelry brands in the La Pelota spaces. On display and sale are the creations of companies from around 30 countries.
Palazzo dei Giureconsulti will be the seat of two group exhibitions: The FaB and Jewelry Drops.
In the first, international artists and designers will show how projects that move from different inspirations - a childhood memory, the power of nature, the extraordinary beauty of the imperfect, experimentation - can creatively interpret each of the 4 scenarios - water, earth, fire and air - which are the guiding thread of this path.
Jewelry Drops, on the other hand, will present around 500 jewels, mainly unique pieces or limited series, made of unusual materials and, in some cases, recycled. A multimedia exhibition will illustrate the stories of the protagonists and the skilful processes that characterize their work. Among the main issues addressed, sustainability, the reference to nature and ethics, the meeting between different sectors and the exchange between tradition and innovation.
Finally, the Galdus school will be the scene of conferences and the talent show that will feature the works of the most promising students selected by the goldsmith schools participating in the event.
But not only. Other events will enliven the center of Milan: between Brera and the 5 Vie, 13 spaces, including design showrooms and art galleries, will host the creations of as many jewelry brands and designers, carefully selected and matched to the location for philosophy, product and Research.
