The Otro Diseno Foundation for Cultural Cooperation and Development in partnership with the Prins Claus and Mondrian Fonds announce the
Gray Area Mexico 2010
project to take place between April 12th and 16th 2010 in Mexico City.

Gray Area will be a five day symposium and associated exhibitions focused on artistic and scholastic encounters between Europe and Latin America, as well as on intra-Latin American exchanges, addressing and reformulating the ideological and practical construction of contemporary jewellery, examining its current state of development in both continents, and respectively exploring and proposing the present and future exchange between Latin American and European individuals and networks. This symposium aims to promote understanding and appreciation of the diverse ways to view, experience, and create jewellery, to encourage cultural exchange among jewellery makers in Latin America and Europe and to combine forces to expand the audience and market for this exciting discipline.

Gray Area will bring together approximately forty speakers from Latin American and European countries. The multidisciplinary panel includes jewellery makers, graduate students, art critics, art historians, gallery managers, collectors, and speakers from other disciplines relevant to topics to be addresses. They have been invited on the basis of their affinities, but also on the tensions between their discourses and practices in order to create a stimulating and challenging discussion that leads to the exchange of ideas and the proposal of future joint projects.

A total of 2 workshops, 8 exhibitions and an array of social events will develop within the frame of the Gray Area Symposium. The main exhibition of the Gray Area, with the title Walking the Gray Area: a Dialogue on Global Monility, Identities and Contemporary Jewellery  and featuring the work of 40 international artists like Celio Braga, Sebastian Buescher, and Karin Seufert will be on show at Galerias Emilia Cohen and Atelier K18 in Mexico City from April 16th to March 15th 2010.

Gray Area, First Iinternational Encounter Of Contemporary Jewellery
Latin America - Europa


Although the mastership of Latin American goldsmiths has been well known throughout the world, there is a facet of Latin American jewellery making that has barely reached beyond its continental boundaries: a new generation of jewellery makers from Latin America is interested in observing and relating to jewellery outside its conventional frame. Somehow, jewellery makers from Latin America have not yet gained access to the international arena of contemporary jewellery, which seems to be lead by an eminently western discourse. The new Latin American Jewellery is the sensible and varied product of a unique historical process and it is able to reflect the region's dynamic mix of cultures and its socio-political realities, as well as the heritage of ancestral goldsmithing techniques and the abundance of materials that exist in an incredibly vast and diverse continent. The fresh, intense, creative and very personal work of these jewellery makers represent and nurture the culture they live in, and it can only contribute to enrich and diversify the international landscape of contemporary jewellery

On the other hand, jewellery makers, curators, collectors, art historians and contemporary art museums through Europe, recognize the cultural role of contemporary jewellery as a medium for analysis, experimentation, individual expression and cultural communication.

With its indisputable ability to provoke, critique, record, transmit, and generate meanings, qualities, and ideas, contemporary jewellery is able to engage individuals in a deep and personal way, and it can also forge common bonds among groups. By allowing for a wide variety of individual responses, contemporary jewellery produces a different kind of collective, asking people to reinvent their world to accommodate these new creations. However, these are all notions that have not yet reached the Latin American audience in a consistent, collective way.

Both our continents are missing the opportunity of an enriching experience.
