Vue de l'exposition au Museu del Disseny

The jewelry collections of the mudac in Barcelona

By Editor 17 December 2015

From 1 to 18 october 2015, the mudac is the guest of the brand new Museu des Disseny of Barcelona, on the occasion of JOYA 2015, an annual event dedicated to contemporary jewelry. The collections of contemporary jewelry of the mudac and the Confederation (on deposit at the museum) consist of nearly 280 works, dating from 1962 to 2013, from 37 creators, mostly Swiss. They offer an astonishing reflection of the evolution of a highly active field. Based on the catalogue Bijoux en jeu published in 2014, the exhibition will thematically develop the sectors related to jewelry: social identity, ornementation, forms, techniques and materials.
