Participam Aurea Praga, Inês Sobreira e Teresa Dantas | Membros PIN
Inaugura a 15 de Abril às 17.30h
@ Mindshake House
Rua da Motas nº 102 (casa azul), Porto

"Este ano, o aniversário do Leonardo é no sábado de Aleluia, em que se prepara a celebração da Páscoa.
Assim, sendo o ovo um símbolo do nascimento e utilizando o pensamento combinatório, lançamos-vos um desafio: 
O que será “o ovo do Leonardo” para cada artista?
Será de madeira, cortiça, tecido ou barro? Um símbolo da criatividade e inovação? Uma imagem monalísica? Um aparelho leonardino?
O ovo do Leonardo será aquilo que queiram que ele seja!".

A exposição estará patente até 21 de Abril de 2017

Exposição "De nada"
De Ana Fernandes | Membro PIN
@ Árvore - Cooperativa de Actividades Artísticas

Exposição "O mais profundo é a pele"
A exposição estará patente até 25 de Junho de 2017

Participa Olga Noronha | Membro PIN
@ Palácio Pombal | MUDE Fora de Portas

"A exposição nasce da coleção de pele humana tatuada, datada de 1910-40, tutelada pelo Instituto de Medicina Legal e Ciências Forenses (IMLCF). Do ponto de vista expositivo pretende efetuar-se uma abordagem s artística e sociológica. 
Ao contrário de coleções congéneres, de outros países, o espólio do IML está consolidada por uma abundante documentação (desenhos e retrato sociocultural de cada individuo), a incluir na exposição.
Esta exposição recupera os ambientes vividos nos bairros típicos de Lisboa no limiar do século XX onde se entrecruzam a marginalidade, a prostituição e o fado; contribuindo, assim, para aprofundar o conhecimento sobre a cidade. 
Ao mesmo tempo, indaga sobre as eventuais características de desenho da tatuagem portuguesa".

Schmucksymposium Zimmerhof 2017
Data limite: 1 de Maio de 2017

Contemporary Jewellery Symposium
25 a 28 de Maio de 2017

"concept of the 49th Schmucksymposium in Zimmerhof 2017
by: Pieter Elbers, Rutger Emmelkamp en Merijn Bolink


"Take your protein pills and put your helmet on" 
What more do we need than this directive from Ground Control to Major Tom in David Bowie's 'Space Oddity'? Carbohydrates, fat, proteins, vitamins, minerals and water are all we need to survive. Apart from situations that force us to look upon nutrition like that, we tend to search for better, new, different, exciting and the unknown. The kitchen is filled with cookbooks. New ingredients and combinations are explored. Popular cooking programs on TV, restaurants are booked a year ahead, the chef has become a star.
Our minds want to be stimulated as much as our taste buds do. But what feeds us as makers, designers and artists? Why do we go to our studio every day to make what we make? To draw, hammer and paint, produce, transform and shape? What arethe sources we work from? What inspires us? What fires us up and gets us going? And how does this become visible? A lot of information about artists can be found on Internet including images of their work. In this year’s edition of the Zimmerhof Symposium we asked the speakers therefore to not only show their work, but mainly to shed a light on their sources, their inspiration, and what feeds them in their artist practice.
For four days we will dive into the different aspects of the meaning of 'Nourishment'. So there will be great food! As well for thought...
This might be the last chance to experience the Zimmerhof Symposium at the fantastic location as you know it. 
As always the Zimmerhof Symposium will be a great opportunity to meet people, get informed, discuss and to have a good time".




26th Legnica International Jewellery Competition IDENTITY
Data limite: 5 de Abril de 2017

"References to important phenomena that shape the present are a lasting  tradition of Legnica Jewellery Festival SILVER. Proposing topics for future competitions we have been trying to follow current civilisational changes and thus inspire artist-goldsmiths, designers and makers of unique jewellery to overpass the schemes and search for individual interpretations.
As it happens, recently, there has not probably been an issue that would not be politically marked – and usually in a negative context. Social processes and their rapid re-evaluations that we are witnessing are described in a language of extreme emotions and not of facts; and ‘post-truth’ becomes the word of the year.  As a result existing criteria for ordering the individual / community relation more and more often force us to make world view declarations. At the same time the very identity of an individual acquires an almost exclusively virtual quality and becomes the subject of self-creation, manipulation and even identity theft.
Designer jewellery, that has always been treated as a  personal amulet, a symbol, a determinant of individual identity, today is subject to the same mechanisms of ruthless marketing as any product, service, emotion or experience. Therefore new questions  arise  with respect to the item / user relation both in the real and virtual context so ruthlessly shaped by the economy of profit.
Are material amulets still needed to manifest our identity?
Have former functions of jewellery been indivertibly taken over by electronic accessories?
Will the personal item made of precious materials get indivertibly replaced by the Big Data algorithm, which is able to make our personality profile on the basis of just 50 traces that we unwittingly leave on the Internet?".

So Fresh + So Clean Call for Entry: 2017
Data limite: 5 de Junho de 2017

Fresh: Work that’s happening now, challenging how we define the field of metalsmithing and jewelry

Clean: Objectively looking at where our studio practices intersect with environmental concerns and human health.

"This exhibition has two goals: we are searching for the most innovative jewelry and metalsmithing work made within the past 2 years, while creating a platform for an honest dialogue about the what it means to be an Ethical Metalsmith. Students who apply to the exhibition are eligible for the Annual Emerging Artist Award. This award will be given to a student who embraces the greater mission of the Ethical Metalsmiths organization and shows exceptional drive or innovative thinking in their approach to the field of jewelry and metalsmithing in their practice.

We understand a completely sustainable practice is a farfetched notion.  However, becoming aware of the ways our practices impact environmental and human health is the first step in the right direction and adds an important layer to the creative decision making of artists. Becoming a member of Ethical Metalsmiths is one small step that places you within this essential dialogue.

Through the lens of sustainability – what it means to “do the right thing” – the Ethical Metalsmith Student Committee challenges you to investigate your studio, processes, methods, and personal goals. Consider the small everyday actions that may be overlooked (like riding your bike to the studio, or making reusable studio rags from old clothes). What are some of the things happening in your shared studio that regard environmental or personal health? What are some considerations for setting up your own studio? What are some concerns you have regarding metalsmithing processes that you would like to see further researched, or changed? Are there processes or materials you avoid for ethical reasons? Tell us about it, ask questions, and then show us the work you are making!".

Data limite: 30 de Junho de 2017

Theme: A jewel of a Lake 

"The Lake Garda has always been the object of artistic contemplation. Since antiquity it left a striking impression on some of the most important figures of the cultural world: from Catullo to Dante, from Goethe to Gabriele D'Annunzio, from Klimt to Maria Callas. 
Its intense and bright colors, its wide horizon delimited by the peaks of the Alpine mountains, its clear light and the uniqueness of its natural flora, are all distinctive traits which can be appreciated through a multisensorial experience. 
Drawing inspiration from the verses of Virgil or from other famous personalities who were fascinated by the Lake Garda, the authors are asked to design a piece of jewelry which resembles the beauty of this territory". 


The Journal of Jewellery Research
Call for papers

Data limite: 30 de Junho de 2017

"We welcome papers that investigate jewellery design, theory and the contexts in which it operates. We support jewellery related research into materials, techniques, methodologies, social practice, concepts and aesthetics".

For young applied arts

Data limite: 28 de Julho de 2017



Data limite: o mais tardar 2 meses antes da data de início da residência.

"A special characteristic of Arc is the wonderful landscape that surrounds it. As walking can be conducive to the discursive process, we want to regularly invite two persons (artists or other practitioners) for shorter residencies, to take long walks in the beautiful green surroundings together. The idea is to give people time to enter into a longer dialogue in another rhythm and collaborative mode".


Residencias R.A.R.O
Data limite: Durante todo o ano.

"R.A.R.O. arises from an interest in creating opportunities for dissemination, exchange and creation where artists find a common place for production and artistic development.

This type of organization of itinerant residencies manages to generate an original and unique artistic space and creates opportunities for artists to carry out their projects".

Cristina Filipe é artista, curadora, professora e investigadora do CITAR/EA-UCP. Estudou em Portugal, Holanda e Inglaterra, tendo ensinado e exposto internacionalmente. Este livro preencherá certamente uma lacuna na história joalharia contemporânea internacional".




Arnoldsche Art Publishers 
Jewellery - Objects - Sculpture

"Scandinavian studio jewellery is simply unimaginable without Tone Vigeland (b. 1938) and her work. Her distinctive objects flatter the human body, captivate through their dimensions and volume, and yet are assembled from a variety of the tiniest hand-crafted components: tubes of silver wire, precisely cut plates, spheres and eyelets, all in small scale, are invisibly interconnected, and Vigeland’s use of heavily oxidised, almost iron-black silver and steel is a typical feature. The result: art on the human body – highly aesthetic, perfectly executed and always wearable. Around 150 jewellery objects from 1958 to 2010 document the pioneering creative work by Tone Vigeland and are complemented with a selection of objects and sculptures from 1998 to the present day, which can now be seen in an exhibition and publication for the very first time".

David Bielander | Twenty Years. 2016-1996

"The Swiss artist David Bielander (b. 1968) is one of the most significant proponents of contemporary art jewellery in the world. With him, nothing is what it seems: corrugated cardboard is actually silver or gold, Wiener sausages are a chair in a coffee house, shapely lips are made of rubber. This ambiguity distinguishes his work as much as his exceptional knowledge of materials and artisanal skill. With twenty years of work, the publication offers the first, comprehensive review of the multi-award-winning artist, who with his conceptual reflection and power of imagination creates works full of wit and sensuality.

With contributions by Helen Britton, Rutger Emmelkamp, Maria Cristina Bergesio, Julia Wild, Gijs Bakker, Marjan Unger, Bernhard Schobinger, Benno Hungerbühler, Florian Hufnagl, Jochen Bitzer, Toni Greenbaum, Raphael Bielander, Tim Krohn, Jorunn Veiteberg and Karl Fritsch".

Documents on Contemporary Crafts No. 4 | André Gali (ed.) | Norwegian Crafts

"Art collectors and collections make up an important part of the contemporary arts and crafts infrastructure. Not only do museums and art collectors improve an artist’s financial situation by buying their work; just as important is the symbolic meaning of the collection. To be included in the ‘right’ collection or museum can give the artist a high level of recognition; at the same time the purchase secures the work a place in a system whose aim is to preserve the work for the future. Collecting is a selection process which has economic, social, political and art historical implications and consequences for the artist, the art scene and the public.

In On Collecting the authors look at collecting from public, private and personal perspectives to shed light on some of the structures that are responsible for how artworks become ‘collectable’ and thus available to the public in museums and public spaces".

Tanel Veenre
Jewellery Diary 2009–2015

‘Experiences must be translated into an intelligible form. That’s why I create art – mainly jewellery. And that’s why I communicate … mainly with words. This book offers no explanations or accompanying texts for the artwork; the pictures and words have ended up together by a strange coincidence that ties them together in my personality.’
(Tanel Veenre)

"The work of the Estonian jewellery artist Tanel Veenre comes alive in its fullest extent in the current artist’s book. Between dramatic objects and mellow-sensual jewellery unfold thoughts, ideas and questions, which are framed by sequences of pictures showing the sources of his inspiration: photographs of Nordic landscapes, of best friends, of church vaults, erotic forms and the workshop in which the fantastical and poetic pieces are created by his very hand. With the ‘portrait photos’ of the hands of sixty-four particularly esteemed artist colleagues, his own picture series is dedicated to hands, the most valuable tool of a jewellery artist.

With this ‘artist’s diary’, Tanel Veenre gives an insight into his world – intimate and sincere thoughts on the ideas and concepts behind his creativity. As a rather abstract thinker, these concentrate less on the detail than the big picture behind it: Why and how is man able to create art? Where does the beginning, where does the end of art lie? Where does nothing end and where does everything begin?".
