MARJAN UNGER TRIBUTE
Marjan Unger (1946-2018) was a well known Dutch art historian, writer, curator, teacher, design expert and a collector of jewellery but most of all a very dedicated promoter of jewellery design.
A warm, kind and humorous lady who was always curious and ready to cross boundaries. She was a reseacher, studied art history and completed her doctoral dissertation, but she also did an excellent job to place jewellery in its daily context. Her broad view on jewellery is reflected in her many publications of which the latest was called ‘Jewellery Matters’. Also the title of a successful symposium held at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam in autumn 2017 of which Marjan was one of the organisers. Marjan and her husband Gerard Unger (1942-2018), a world renowned typeface designer, donated a substantial collection of Dutch jewellery to the Rijksmuseum.
Sadly Marjan passed away last year. To honour this dear and wise friend the 18th edition of SIERAAD International Jewellery Art Fair will held a MARJAN UNGER TRIBUTE in cooperation with the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam. A special exhibition of thirteen well known jewellery designers and their specific personal design that connects them with the versatile Marjan Unger.
The participating artists are: Melvin Anderson, Gijs Bakker, Paul Derrez, Mieke Groot, Maria Hees, Felieke van der Leest, Chequita Nahar, Willem Noyons, Evert Nijland, Ruudt Peters, Marleen Rameckers, Beppe Kessler and Ravage.
The MARJAN UNGER TRIBUTE will be curated by John de Greef, a fashion writer and dear friend of Marjan. He finds it heartwarming to receive so many enthusiastic reactions from the designers and to hear about the very special place Marjan Unger had in their careers. ‘Everybody reacts with a sincere “It’s a real honour to participate!”. And the same is true for me!’
To add lustre to this edition of SAF there will be some special events and striking presentations. The 18th edition of SIERAAD Art Fair, 7-10 November 2019. LOCATION: WESTERGAS Amsterdam.
