It is going to explore the connection between the miniature and monumental creations made by some of the most significant artists of the last two centuries, combining beautiful pieces of jewellery with an assortment of paintings and sculptures. Some of the artists whose work will be on display will include Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, Pablo Picasso, and Sophia Vari.
“A piece of ‘artist’s jewelry’, like a painting or a sculpture, is a work of art. Springing from the same creative approach, it possesses the same force, poetry and ability to provoke, sometimes even the same humor. It is only their ultimate purpose that distinguishes one from the other” Diane Venet, Artists’ Jewelry Collector.
Custot Gallery Dubai is delighted to present the first artist’s jewelry exhibition in Dubai and in the region, this coming March. Right from Alexander Calder, Pablo Picasso and Niki de Saint Phalle, through to Anish Kapoor, Marc Quinn, Ron Arad and Pablo Reinoso, many of the greatest artists and designers of the 20th and 21st centuries have presented both their thoughts and talent to jewelry. Visitors can witness bracelets, necklaces, earrings, rings, these art creations cover the entire spectrum of jewelry. Often marked as a proof of love, these exceptional artists’ jewels were originally created for their families and close ones. With a selection of unique pieces and limited editions in gold, silver and bejeweled works, the most important European and American artists will be exhibited, as well as four major artists from the Middle East: Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, Sahand Hesamiyan, Pouran Jinchi and Nadim Karam. The exhibition brings together over 80 pieces of jewelry and 20 works of art from the artists.
