Exciting news of ACJ's exhibition programme for the next two years.

2019 - 20 Connections/Connessioni, a touring exhibition with our Italian sister organisation AGC; 2019 a members' selling show at Gill Wing Jewellery in London.

For 2020 the Members' Exhibition theme is Glasshouses


ACJ has produced a two-country touring exhibition with AGC in Italy, opened in November 2019 at the Goldsmiths' Centre in London, travelling to Scotland next, then in June 2020 it will open in the first of two Italian venues.

Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo (AGC) was established in 2004, and (like ACJ) includes curators, educators, gallerists, collectors among its members, as well as practicing jewellers.  AGC has an excellent track record of exhibitions and events, in Italy and internationally. They regularly show at JOYA Barcelona, Schmuck Germany, and have shown in the USA and China.  See : www.agc-it.org
Their annual Gioielli in Fermento (Jewellery in Ferment) shows work from makers across the globe, selected from applications and invited artists, and the work is very fresh and exciting. See: gioiellinfermento.com   May 2019 saw the start of the 9th event in this series.

Connections/Connessioni shows the work of 50 makers, half from each organisation.
