On the day after SIERAAD, Monday November 11th, the first SIERAAD SYMPOSIUM will be held. When such a strong delegation comes to Holland from the USA, it is worth the effort to combine their presentations at SIERAAD with a special symposium, where artists can go more deeply into their work and techniques. One artist will do this by means of an extensive powerpoint, others (among whom Julian Moore) will give a fantastic lesson in her way of working. More to come but you can put Monday the 11th in your schedule! More information: http://www.sieraadartfair.com/cms/editie-2011/

NTJ 2014 CONFRONTATIONS New Traditional Jewellery, International design contest and (travelling) exhibition
NTJ’s raison d’être:
“All human joys and burdens have been materialized in jewellery,” according to art historian Marjan Unger. Jewellery marks every crossroads in our life, every highlight and every loss. If jewellery accompanies us every step of the way, how can we use it to improve our quality of life?
The technical jury of New Traditional Jewellery (NTJ) has selected the theme “CONFRONTATIONS” for the 2014 design contest and exhibition.
Confrontations may carry different meanings: on a grand scale (climate changes, distribution of wealth, waste management, for example) or in a private inner dialogue: there is a lot we are confronted with. Confrontations are often hard to ignore and force you to have an opinion. Some of them may even be life-changing.
Confrontations also mean coming to grips with problematic situations, tackling a problem head-on (taking the bull by the horns) and facing the music. It’s a word commonly used in sports, politics, psychology and war.
This is by no means a complete inventory of the ways ‘CONFRONTATIONS’ can be understood. We are just scratching the surface; it’s up to you to confront us with your interpretation. What is confronting to you? What is it you want to confront us with? So here’s the challenge: translate your take on ‘CONFRONTATIONS’ into jewellery design.
As in all prior editions of New Traditional Jewellery, we ask contemporary professional jewellery designers to base their design on an inspirational source. This source of inspiration can range from ethnographic jewellery to personal history or current events and trends with relevance to CONFRONTATIONS.
On behalf of the technical jury, the executive committee of the jury wishes all participants much inspiration and success!
Astrid Berens, Director SIERAAD Art Fair & Isabella van den Bos, chairwoman of Foundation Art in Business.
