In 2019, Die Neue Sammlung is inviting Karen Pontoppidan (born 1968), the renowned Danish jewelry artist and Professor of the Jewelry and Hollowware Class at Akademie der Bildenden Künste München, to curate the annual jewelry exhibition at Pinakothek der Moderne.
The exhibition titled SCHMUCKISMUS showcases works by 30 international jewelry artists under the Pinakothek’s glass dome. Included are works from recent years, as well as one piece by each artist designed and produced especially for the exhibition. All the objects on show share and stand out for their engagement with and exploration of social phenomena. Pontoppidan’s concept was born out of the deep conviction that the rigid political and religious “–isms” of our day require careful review.
A catalogue spanning approximately 160 pages will be issued by Arnoldsche Art Publishers on the occasion of the exhibition and will include contributions by Hanne Loreck, Angelika Nollert, and Karen Pontoppidan, with a book design by Yvonne Quirmbach. Our thanks goes to the participating jewelry artists.
