Walking treasures
Esh Gallery, Milano, Italy

ESH Gallery will explore the fascinating universe of artists' jewellery, highlighting the techniques and materials used for each creation. Jewellery in metal, glass, ceramic, with stones and natural elements, which will allow for a new interpretation of the concept of ornamentation, exploring the boundary between art and design. Gradually moving away from tradition, which in the jewellery sector is often bound to the pure search for preciousness, the spectator will find unique works of art to wear: small handmade sculptures, unique pieces with an innovative design that enclose the artist's original language in their form. In this scenario, made up of nuances far removed from the conventional shades of gold and silver, the Walking Treasures creations come to life: treasures to display on skin, symbolic elements reflecting an aesthetic research on human being.

Double yellow line: Borders
Moscow, Russia

Some artifacts from 3020 collection will take part in "Double yellow line" an international contemporary jewelry show about borders- political, geographical, cultural- promoted by 9 march project. Dotted lines of a blank map, parallels and meridians, language barriers, concrete fences, barbed wire and hedgerows: our entire world is divided by multitude of lines, both real and imaginary. Coastline separates ocean from land, borderline separates one country from the other, and the poverty line separates people from each other. Our first exhibition was dedicated to feminism – a movement that unites women of different countries, ages, races and backgrounds. For our second exhibition we chose the subject of “borders” to talk about division and disconnection, about opposing teams and uncompromising decisions – but also about self-preservation and protecting your identity from the permanent pressure of the outside world. Today, jewelry can be a symbol of belonging – to a particular class, religion, movement. But it can also serve as a sign of otherness, thus repeating the function of borders on a microlevel. We think it’s important to talk about borders – political, geographical, cultural using the language of contemporary jewelry, because we are certain that contemporary jewelry is a universal language of expression that can create meanings everyone can try on – both literally and metaphorically. The exhibition will take place from November 19th to December 15th 2021 at Winzavod Contemporary Art Center in Moscow. Check out more.

Beauty and wonder
Galerie Lalabeyou, Madrid, Spain

Galerie Lalabeyou in Madrid is going to host the third leg of the travelling exhibition Beauty and wonder curated by Luis Acosta. When we talk about beauty, we talk about perceptions of an abstract notion that corresponds to an attribute granted more than anything by a remarkable harmony that causes positive sensations at the sensory level, which is also equivalent to an aesthetic quality or value. So, we talk about a subjective experience, which can vary not only from the eye of an observer to another, but between cultures and times. The wonder, the first step towards reflection and contemplation, is linked to the discovery of something unusual or the experience of an unusual situation. We say that we are wondered when an event causes us a certain emotional impact or a sense of strangeness. In this collection of jewels, harmony and perfection that inspire admiration and delight come together. Admiration for the unexpected or unthinkable find and delight for the pleasant to the intellect or the senses. Some pieces from 3020 collection will be on display during Beauty and wonder exhibition. Check out more.

Jewelry and nature
Tincal Lab
Porto, Portugal

I take part in the Tincal lab challenge -Jewelry and nature- with two works from the new collection Morphosis. They will be on display at Tincal Lab in CCBombarda Rua Miguel Bombarda, 285, shop 25 Porto, Portugal. Contest brief: It’s not difficult to think that nature can inspire any artistic creation. Beautiful in form and rich in content, it represents an unlimited universe of fauna, flora and landscape. From the most microscopic scale to the most universal context, it includes natural phenomena unable to tame, sources of life (and death) and essential resources. Colors, materials, textures. Shapes, sounds, movements. It generally excludes the human creation and the built environment, but nowadays, it may be difficult to know a corner of the planet that has not been affected by humankind in any way. Reflect on the current situation and human vulnerability to natural causes greater than us? A challenge that demands to a look inside, as well as to the world around us. Read more here.

Artificial Intelligems @ Munich jewellery week

Some jewels from 3020 collection are involved in the Artifcial Intelligems project. Artificial Intelligems is an artistic research project exploring AI within contemporary jewellery practice. By experimenting with Machine Learning (ML) algorithms, this project investigates AI as artistic output, collaborative design tool, and exhibition format, among other. What potential as well as threats does AI offer for jewellery as a discipline and discourse? Furthermore, what roles can the domain of jewellery play in making use of and, moreover, challenging these technologies? Through an open call, more than a hundred jewellery artists and designers submitted images of their works, and nearly a thousand images are used to ‘feed’ the ML algorithm.Artificial Intelligems will be presented during Munich Jewellery Week through an online event consisting of live dreaming sessions and a series of reflective talks (11th till 14th of March).

"Napoli. Design impermanente."

Curated by Claudio Gambardella, Guida editori.

In Italy, only Milan and Turin are recognized as "design cities". But it is necessary to reason prudently, without claiming south against north, about the real role that Naples has played. This book begins to bring this theme to common attention. But there is a second question that thus arises. It is important to ask what has caused Naples, despite the series of contributions and proposals it has developed for Italian design, to always remain on the sidelines, at least partially, as a "design city". 3020 project is feautured in this publication collecting the main architecture and design produced in Naples and Campania region. Book is available here.
