FADA Gallery in association with the Contemporary Jewellery Forum (https://www.facebook.com/events/175052216399222/) is proud to announce the launch of the first ever South African Contemporary Jewellery Awards Exhibition. Created to promote jewellery as an innovative and creative medium for personal expression. The aim is to provide a platform for cutting edge concepts and ideas for unique and original art jewellery. The curated exhibition will honour excellence in the field, showcasing the work of artists that realise their creative ideas and concepts from a body adornment perspective. The major driving criteria in recognising excellence are creativity and innovation; thinking through design and craft, whilst embracing advancements in technology. The work will feature in a peer reviewed catalogue, contributing to research and development, whilst stimulating cultural production in the field. Artists are encouraged to explore a diverse range of materials, techniques and processes that best express their creative ideas and concepts. The creative platform will ultimately stimulate dialogue amongst the jewellery community within South Africa in the 21st century, broadening the scope of creative output in the field/sector.
