POster and Rebecca2ACJ Director, Rebecca Skeels recently attended the 2018 Triple Parade event (see image). Here’s what she has to say about the event and a few pictures too.

Yet another successful Triple Parade event, opened on the 19th October 2018, organised and run by Sun Jie and the TRIPLE PARADE Biennale Organising Committee, HOW Art Museum-Design Center, College of Design and Innovation, Tongji University, Shanghai.

This is the fourth edition of Triple Parade, with the first established in 2013. This year’s theme and dialogue was across the Past, the Present, the Future. The programme included a conference, exhibition and a series of workshops and talks.

The exhibition is running until the 6th January 2018, so still time to visit and well worth it! The biggest exhibition and event so far includes over 500 jewellery pieces from makers from 34 countries and regions on display in the How Art Museum. With a variety of Association for Contemporary Jewellery members in the mix. Crossing over various parts of the four sections. 1, Intimate Encounter, 2, Like Attracts Like, 3, Arty Game and 4, Viva La Different.

The conference included presentations from curators, educators, makers, organisations and historians from around the world, creating a great debate around the past, present and future of the jewellery industry. Collaboration, supporting each other and creating a future for those learning and passionate about the industry is high on the agenda, with the Triple Parade events, Sun Jie and his team bringing together those passionate about the industry and opportunities that are to come.
