Cass Artists Make it to Munich

Cass students, alumni staff and artists in residence will be storming Schmuck at International Hanwerkmesse, one of the world’s largest jewellery shows, next month with a variety of exhibitions, talks and events.

The Walking Table from the 14th March - 20th March at Munich Fairground is a special concept exhibition of tableware created by young designers from renowned European universities. The show, curated by Alessandra Pizzini of the Silber-Sommer-Galerie features work by Cass BA (Hons) Silversmithing and Jewellery students Juliette Bigley, Suzanne Jameso and Daria Nikitna, Postgraduate student on the MA By Project Tabi Frost, Deborah Werbner of Aritsts in Residence collective, as well as PhD student Min Sun Kim.

Linked to this exhibition is a talk on the 19th March called Design talk: “Table-Things”, led by Simone ten Hompel, Jerwood- winning Silversmith and Reader at The Cass and Professor Christine Lüdeke of Pforzheim University. After the talks, there will be an open discussion about the study of things and their relation to the ritual of eating. The observation of the artefacts will serve as a basis for interpretation.

The Dialogue Collective, which consists of students, staff and alumni will present Dialogue 12: Renaissance between March 16th and 18th. For Dialogue 12: Renaissance each participant in the project was given the title ‘Renaissance’ to respond to. The individual bodies of work have come together as a whole through the combination of making and talking. The mix of more established makers with fresh exciting new talents produces the vibrant and energetic overall feel that emanates from the work. The exhibitors include three current Level 2 BA (Hons) Jewellery and Silversmithing students Sophie Hall, Maarit Liukkonen, Ana Simoes, as well as a host recent graduates and lecturers on the BA and MA course at Cass including Timothy Carson aka Timothy Information Limited.

The Renaissance show will continue it’s European tour at Legnica Jewellery Festival in Poland in May (where another current Level 2 student Aneta Wrobel will join the exhibitors) and then to the Manoir d'Ango in Normandy in July.

Nine of the Artists in Residence (AinR) group, at The Cass will exhibit at Gallery 84GHz from 15th to 18th March. The diversity within AinR will be revealed through the broad range of style, scale and mediums explored within the functional or concept led pieces exhibited. Works on display extend from intimate jewellery to catwalk pieces; from hand held objects to furniture; in both precious and non-precious materials. The exhibition features Riccardo Bovo, Isabelle Busnel, Dan Hilldrup, Mara Irsara, Elisabeth Auriol Peers, Maria Piana, Mariana Skia, Luca Eszter Romanyi, Deborah Werbner. Each of these nine artists has chosen a specific theme:

For over fifty years SCHMUCK has been the jewellery sector's premier exhibition. From among the many applications received from designers to exhibit in SCHMUCK, a single juror makes his or her own personal selection of those whose work will be presented. This juror is generally an international curator and expert in contemporary jewellery design.
