Jewelry Exhibition & Conference

“Personal Narrative Spaces”

Mission Statement

Without an audience, without the presence of spectators, these jewels would not fulfil the function for which they came into being. The viewer, then, is the ultimate artist. His sight, heart, mind – fusing with and grasping with greater or lesser understanding the intent of the creator – gives them life.Dalí

Highlighting the international platform and ensuring the outstanding quality of the exhibited objects are primary considerations.

This will be achieved through an active marketing strategy on both national and international platforms, the provision of high quality exhibition space and the professionalism of an international, expert jury.

A key objective of the exhibition is to highlight the aspect of contemporary jewelry creation that seamlessly integrates creativity and the expectations of modern design with practical wearability. To achieve this, we emphasize the establishment of a deep yet expansive connection between the pieces and the audience, bridging apparent contradictions.

The goal of the exhibition is to convey the messages embedded in the artworks in a permeating yet accessible manner, creating a more harmonious communication space between the makers, the creations, and the viewers.

The Jury

The international Jury members select the artworks to be featured in the exhibition and award prizes to jewelry pieces across three competition categories.

The call is open to all contemporary jewelry designers and artists, collectives, schools, and galleries from Hungary and abroad, regardless of age, education, and experience.

Venue

The 19th-century building of the former sawmill is one of the most interesting and special exhibition venues in Hungary. Based on the idea of painters Dezső Korniss and Pál Deim, the gallery was opened to the general public on the initiative of For Szentendre’s Art Foundation in cooperation with the Szentendre Architects’ Club in June 1999. The founders aimed to establish a modern artists’ center. The museum currently hosts temporary exhibitions.

It is the atmosphere, the diverse, special spaces, and the over one and a half decades of professional history of the ArtMill that makes it a definitive center for contemporary art not only on a local but also on an international scale. It is the third most important exhibition space in Hungary thanks to its features and its temporary exhibitions visited by a large number of people.
