CATALOGUE PROJECT FOR SCHMUCK JEWELRY WEEK OF MUNICH 2024
SUBMIT YOUR WORK UNTIL 31 JANUARY 2024!
( EXTENDED DEADLINE )
SMCK MAGAZINE's next issue, titled Schmuck On The Go! will come out end of February 2024, ahead of Schmuck / Jewelry Week of Munich 2024. The digital issue will be free to download, and will be distributed through SMCK Magazine's subscribers' base and network that include art editors, critics and fashion journalists, curators, museums’ and foundations’ decision makers, art experts and VIPs, designers, artists, crafters, schools, institutions and academics, grant committee members, and gallerists.
Schmuck On The Go! presents, next to its exceptional journalistic content, a professionally curated, designed, and edited catalogue featuring contemporary jewelry’s major trends. Institutions such as Danner Foundation, Grassi Design Museum, Jakob Bengel Foundation, Deutsches Germanisches Museum etc will be featured in the catalogue.
JEWELRY IS A BRIDGE
The goal of the catalogue is to make the international public aware of contemporary jewelry's creative, society changing and business potential by presenting the best in the field.
The catalogue’s title is "Jewelry Is A Bridge". It is divided into the following three chapters:
// Life Milestones
// Social Values
The three separate chapters reflect and explain jewelry’s rich cultural and spiritual history. The chapters facilitate readers and experts to gain insight in the makers’ work and to picture it in the context of jewelry’s conceptual, economic or emotional role in human societies.
Works by thirty selected jewelry artists will be presented in the catalogue, and the social media. The artists' participation in exhibitions during Schmuck 2024 or in other 2024 scheduled jewelry events will also be mentioned in the catalogue, and these details will serve as a 2024 Jewelry Calendar to keep an eye on.
Individual artists, as well as organizations (schools, foundations, artist residencies, biennials or galleries) may apply to be included in the Jewelry Is A Bridge catalogue.
The catalogue serves as a bibliography reference, while it enriches the artist's or organization's portfolio. Jewelry Is A Bridge adds context and content to the artist's work, and promotes it in a way no standard advertisement can do.
