Art Jewelry in Munich

The craft fair does not take place until July. But already in March 2022 something is happening in the capital of jewelry art.

For years, Galerie Handwerk has been organizing a jewelry exhibition in the gallery’s rooms parallel to the International Crafts Fair Munich and the special show “Schmuck”. Because of the pandemic, the IHM was canceled in the past two years, and the gallery program also had to adapt again and again to the new conditions. “This year, however, we would like to revive the jewelry life in Munich in the spring, even though the craft fair has been postponed until July.”

Faces – Faces

The theme of “face” has always played a role in the author’s jewelry. In the exhibition of Galerie Handwerk different approaches of more than 50 international artists are shown. They are pieces of jewelry that are personally colored or hold up a mirror to society, alienated types and stylized countenances that look back at us as necklaces, rings or brooches. Masquerades of human behavior, caricatures or ironic, even animal heads are represented. Quite offensively, contact is made with the counterpart.
