10 year of AUTOR: Over 100 designers from four continents and 27 countries come to the Bucharest National Theater on April 20 and 21, with a carefully selected selection of contemporary jewelry.

AUTOR, the only contemporary art and jewelry event in South-Eastern Europe, opens its doors to TNB with an exclusive selection of contemporary and art jewelry. For ten years, AUTOR has outlined with each edition a new way of understanding and wearing a gem.

On April 20 and 21, over 100 designers from four continents and 27 countries will offer to the audiences in Bucharest the opportunity to admire and purchase a curatorial selection of contemporary and art jewelry.

AUTOR 2019 takes place in the foyer of the National Theater, between 10:00-18:00. Tickets available here.

Raluca Buzura, one of the most talented Romanian artists of contemporary jewelry and one of the most longevous presences in the history of the AUTOR fair, is FOCUS artist of the 18th anniversary edition.

With a central positioning in the new edition of the fair, in the foyer of the National Theater in Bucharest, on April 20-21, Raluca brings to the Romanian audience the collection “She”, a porcelain metaphor dedicated to femininity in all its complicated, emotional, cute and fascinating sides.

“I first came to AUTOR 10 years ago. At that time I did not have much knowledge about this field, because in artistic education in Romania, jewelry is not fully recognized as a form of art, but rather as a craft. As a consequence, there were not too many artist-jewelers, and even less off a public. I think AUTOR has played an enormous role in their development. It created the artists’ exposure possibilities and thus, in time and by work, an audience loving jewelry, “says Raluca Buzura.

This year’s selection brings to TNB, on April 20th and 21st, well-known and emerging names on four continents:

About AUTOR:

AUTOR is an exclusive scene for contemporary jewelry, concepts and encounters. It is the space where both functional and conceptual approaches to wearing jewelry can be seen and touched. In each edition we are defining “the sweet spot” where design, art and emotions meet.

The selected artists explore different themes such as wearable versus statement pieces, cultural differences and meanings, authenticity and personal filter, accepted beauty and unusual aesthetics.

As a platform, AUTOR communicates on different levels and through various media: the fair, the printed magazine, the awards and a versatile digital arena.
