The Milan Jewelery Week program with 150 designer-artists and the Artistar Jewels competition ♦ ︎
We must congratulate Prodes, a company that organizes events of different types and its founder, Enzo Carbone. In seven years Artistar Jewels, which had started as a jewelery show-competition of avant-garde designers, has turned into a kermess up to the point of standing in a Jewelery Week (24-27 October) with many events scattered around the city.
This is not a replica of fairs dedicated to high jewelry, but the event seems to be able to attract interest and creatives from half the world.
Artistar Jewels remains at the center of the program. This is a collective exhibition of artists hosted at Palazzo Bovara (Corso di Porta Venezia 51, free admission).
Artistar Jewels is a project that has grown exponentially in recent years, gathering support from both insiders and a growing number of enthusiasts. The success of Artistar Jewels has allowed us to intercept the need to give the right emphasis to contemporary jewelery, in strong expansion in recent years, creating an entire week dedicated to it: hence the idea of launching the first in Milan Jewelry Week.
Enzo Carbone, CEO of Prodes Italia
Among the over 500 applications received from all over the world, the curators of Artistar Jewels have selected 150 artists from 40 different countries, including Taiwan, Thailand, Lebanon, Armenia, Israel and Kuwait and a strong North American presence. In particular, the U.S. New York’s Export Assistance Center contacted the Diamond District Partnership, which organized a contest to give a New York artist the chance to attend the event with the support of this New York institution. The war of duties, in short, has not yet done damage in this sector.
Artistar Jewels in addition to the exhibition and editorial part, also realizes a competition, which was created with the aim of giving greater prominence to the artists who stood out among the already deserving participants. The jury of Artistar Jewels, chaired by Elisabetta Barracchia, director of Accessory Vogue Vanity Fair. We have already mentioned in another article the designer Gianni De Benedittis, who in collaboration with Artistar Jewels established the future prizeRemoto jewels, which consists of two sums of money that will be assigned, respectively, to a participant of Artistar Jewels and to a student of one of the schools participating in the Milano Jewelry Week, which will have distinguished themselves for their excellent mastery of the goldsmith’s technique and which will have taken into account the needs and trends of the fashion system.
It should be added that the pieces on display do not often resemble traditional jewels. The techniques used range from laser cutting to lost wax, from watermark to hand finishing, through 3D printing, increasingly widespread in this sector, as well as the use of materials, from year to year more green and the result of activities of recycling and upcycling. Also this year the works will end up in a book.
