​Stockholm museums and galleries in joint venture about art jewellery this spring

Press Release   •   Feb 24, 2016 08:15 GMT

Thirty years ago, Kulturhuset staged a landmark exhibition of international art jewellery. Nationalmuseum is excited to present a sequel, but this time the exhibition is one of many. Various Stockholm museums, galleries and artist collectives are hosting parallel exhibitions of significant Swedish work. Art Jewellery 2016 is a unique snapshot of the forms of artistic expression that are part of the current dialogue. This spring, venues across Stockholm invite you to discover the strength, power and scope of contemporary art jewellery, which is so much more than just a genre.
