Context Gallery, jewels and contemporary objects - THE STRENGTH OF THE TEXTILE

CONTEXT exhibitions

22/02/2020 a 11/05/2020



The strength of textil, is a collection of Contemporary International Jewelry in which 24 designers participate.
This exhibition is not about the textile jewelry itself, but about something that suggests it, regardless of the material and technique used. It is the ambiguous concept of the textile jewelry where the quality of the textile materials is contrasted with the hardness and coldness of the metal.
The experience of each designer leads him (sometimes unconsciously) to produce an object that is later cataloged into a discipline he had not taken into account.
It is interesting to see, within that experimentation, the application of these materials that are transformed into delicate pieces delivering a unique aesthetic to each design.


Show curated by designer Luis Acosta.
