Opening of Exhibition of Contemporary Gold and Silverware and Jewellery

Last night I attended the opening of this exhibition at the National Museum of the Decorative Arts here in Madrid, of gold and silverware and jewellery by living craftspeople from Spain and other countries. It’s one of the fringe activities for Madrid Fashion Week which is ongoing as I write.

I was glad to see the museum engaging with the contemporary crafts community and attracting people from the fashion world who may not have been there otherwise.

Organized by the Association of Contemporary Jewellery and Goldsmithing Designers (Asociación de Diseñadores de Orfebrería y Joyería Contemporánea).

Specialist jewellery publishers Grupo Duplex, have published an article about the event in Spanish, which has some interesting pictures of some of the exhibits.

The flyer is available online in English and in Spanish (PDF).

It's open Tuesday to Saturday 9:30 to 15:00, and Sundays and holidays 10:00 to 15:00. Thursday afternoons 17:00 to 20:00. Admission Free. On until 26th March 2017. It’s on the fourth (top) floor.
