INTRO, a new contemporary jewellery gallery supported by Galerie Marzee, opens in Amsterdam
On 6 November 2019 INTRO, a unique new contemporary jewellery gallery, will open in Amsterdam. Established and supported by Galerie Marzee, INTRO will provide a space exclusively for recently graduated jewellery students from around the world to show and sell their work for a period of three years. INTRO will be curated, in three year cycles, by graduates and/or undergraduates from international schools and academies. We have asked alumni from the Jewelry + Metalsmithing faculty at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in Providence, USA, to take charge for the inaugural period.
Galerie Marzee has invited a broad selection of graduates from this year’s Marzee Graduate Show to participate in this new project, giving them the opportunity to show their graduate collection, and new work as it develops, in a space dedicated to the promotion of emerging young talent in innovative contemporary jewellery. INTRO will also present a series of smaller editions by each new artist, offering affordable pieces that reflect the mood and preoccupations of their larger body of work. The 2017 and 2018 graduates who were part of our previous Marzee for Starters project will now join INTRO for the remainder of their three year involvement.
We are very excited about this new venture and look forward to seeing how it grows and changes in the hands of young, practising artists.
Please join us for the opening of INTRO on Wednesday 6 November 2019 from 4 – 7pm
The opening exhibition will showcase work by our selection of graduates from 2019
