(FULL) Hnoss 25 år – Jubilee seminar (in english)

The seminar forms together with the Jubilee exhibition a celebration of 25 years with Hnoss. The seminar focuses on international jewellery artists presenting their work processes, with the artist talks framed by a discussion on the major changes that have occurred in ­the jewellery field since Hnoss started in 1997. The lecturers all take part in the Jubilee Exhibitions in Hnoss’ old venue at Konstepidemin.

The moderator’s reflections and the round up panel discussion will focus on distinct shifts in the world of jewellery during the last decades such as the rise of the Internet and the emergence of digital communication platforms, the increasing influence of Asian artists on the international scene and the growing importance of women as artists, educators and gallery owners. The discussion will also highlight the fact that at the same time as craft theory has strengthened its position within the educational system, the jewellery field has in recent years seen a renewed interest in exquisite craft skills.

Organized by Hnoss Initiative in collaboration with Iaspis. The seminar is in English.

About Galleri Hnoss

Galleri Hnoss opened in the fall of 1997 and displayed international jewellery art, arranged seminars, residencies and worshops for fourteen years. The gallery was managed by a group of jewellery artist at Konstepidemin in Gothenburg. In the 2011 the gallery closed but the group continued under the name Hnoss Initiative. Since then exhibitions, seminars and workshops have been organised together with other galleries and artspaces in Sweden and abroad.

Hnoss now celebrates 25 years by reappearing as a gallery at the original venue at Konstepidemin.
