For six days from 6 to 11 November 2018, 160 Austrian and international jewellery makers will present their work at 35 locations across Vienna. In only three years, the platform WIENER SCHMUCKTAGE evolved into an international festival of contemporary jewellery in Vienna.
In 2018, the pieces on display will range from innovative author jewellery, upcycled and recycled designs to jewellery made of paper, Corian®, porcelain and horn. Moreover, the festival will show sculpture, video and performance work as well as presentations of current jewellery collections using traditional gold- and silversmiths’ techniques.
KICK-OFF WITH OPEN CALL 2018 – PRESENTATION IN THE MAK COLUMNED MAIN HALL
The WIENER SCHMUCKTAGE invites jewellery artists to participate in the OPEN CALL 2018. For the third year in a row, ten select pieces of jewellery will be presented at the KICK-OFF event in cooperation with the MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art and will be shown for the entire duration of the WIENER SCHMUCKTAGE 2018 in the MAK Columned Main Hall.
The WIENER SCHMUCKTAGE invites the public to the KICK-OFF on Tuesday, 6 November 2018 at 7.30 pm. The event is intended as a networking occasion, where jewellery lovers, programme partners and experts are welcome to get together and wear their favourite jewellery.
INTELLECT, FEELTOUCH, EMOTION, SENSUALITY
The WIENER SCHMUCKTAGE intensifies public engagement with contemporary jewellery production and awakens their desire to wear jewellery. The compelling specially developed event concept sensitizes the public’s intellect, sense of touch, emotions and sensuality in equal measure.
In the framework of solo and group exhibitions, workshops (SCHMUCK.FÜHLEN), motto breakfasts with jewellery makers (SCHMUCK.SCHMECKEN) and themed-guided tours of studios, galleries, jeweller’s shops as well as museum collections (SCHMUCK.MACHEN), contemporary jewellery making is transformed into a unique experience.
The SCHMUCK.NACHT will take place on Wednesday, 7 November 2018 from 2 to 10 p.m.
This year’s lecture series SCHMUCK.DISKURSIV in the MAK FORUM on Sunday, 11 November 2018 from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., discusses the innovative approach of new materials and technologies.
