Autor 10 /Sala Dalles/ November 16 & 17
After five years of hard work and nine editions of creative labour, the most important event dedicated to contemporary jewellery from South-Eastern Europe is coming back with an anniversary edition, on the 16th and 17th of November, at Sala Dalles in Bucharest.
The tenth edition of Autor Contemporary Jewellery Fair highlights a new stage in our effort to introduce our event in a multicultural context: Autor has become international!
“Our spring edition was only a preview of this development, now we are confident to affirm that the contemporary jewellery universe has a lot to offer, and Autor and its gifted participant members are ready to conquer it“, says Dan Pierșinaru, the organizer of the fair.
Autor celebrates the development and the creativity in the field of contemporary jewellery by setting up an event of international standards, where both Romanian and overseas designers will exhibit their newest and most exquisite creations. Having a biannual frequency and two day duration, Autor has prepared for its visitors the following sections: Focus Designer, New Entry, International, Product Design, Recommended by…
The “Recommended by…” section is this time around supported by a very special guest: fashion designer Maria Lucia Hohan, whose creations have mesmerized the entire Hollywood. Thus, during the first day of the fair- on the 16th of November, visitors will have the opportunity to see Maria Lucia Hohan making her own selection of the exhibited jewels. Her favourite pieces will receive a visual badge attesting their selection by the famous designer.
AAA – Autor Awesome Award
During the fair, an international jury formed by experts in the visual art field will analyse the jewels and will offer the Autor Awesome Award to the de Romanian designer with the best collection or pieces. The award is a special one, and it also encourages a multicultural exchange: a three month scholarship at Le Arti Orafe, the most prestigious jewellery school in Florence.
Autor 10 gathers together 55 jewellery designers, who will exhibit their pieces in a set up realised by well-known designer Atilla Kim. The creative concepts present a high level of variety, reflecting not only their decorative function, but also the dynamics of a society and the actual trends. Therefore, one of the missions of the event is to mediate the exchange between the artists and their publics. A jewel reaches its purpose the moment when it’s being worn, and its value stems from the interpretations and discussions that the public generates around it. “Having reached our 10th edition, we can finally say that our predictions have turned out to be true: contemporary jewellery has a bright future in Romania“, says Dan Pierșinaru, founder of Autor.
