Free entrance

The exhibition, which will be active until November 28, shows very relevant pieces of 12 jewelers belonging to two generations: the pioneers Ninon Collet and Mariona Lluch, and a second generation formed by Montserrat Guardiola, Carmen Zulueta, Teresa Capella, Anna Font, Teresa Casanovas, Chelo Sastre, Margarita Kirchner, Ángeles López Antei, Marta Breis and Núria Matabosch. All of them worked in Barcelona and spread in our country the renewing airs of the ‘new jewel’, which questioned high jewelry and understood this practice as a new field of experimentation and artistic expression. Linked to this exhibition has also been published the publication "12 jewelers 1965-1990. Art, design and experimentation", produced by Sd · edicions, with texts by Pilar Vélez, jewelry historian and director of the Design Museum of Barcelona; Imma Jansana, architect and jeweler; and Mª Lluisa Samaranch, graphic designer and founder of the publishing house.

The exhibition happens at same time that 'Enjoia't and Fira Joya
