Open Call for Beijing!!!

Ubi Gallery is a creative platform in Beijing, where high quality pieces of contemporary jewellery and ceramics are on display.

Ubi means ‘where’, it refers to moving and arriving, it is about asking questions.
The gallery offers a platform to those great designers and artists who through their work keep us curious.

Ubi Gallery is founded in autumn 2012 by Machtelt Schelling and is situated in the historical area of Dashilar in Beijing, located south of the Forbidden City.


Besides organizing exhibitions, Ubi Gallery is also active in organizing non-for profit events, as lectures and workshops for the design community and art academies in China.

Ubi Gallery aims to be a platform where people from the field of contemporary jewellery find a space to meet, to get to know customers, a space where they are challenged to develop their work, a place where they are proud to show their results and open to meet a community to start a dialogue.

So with this task in mind Ubi is calling for entries to:
UBI Top Young 2013
Graduation Series for Contemporary Asian Jewellery

• The exhibition is aimed specifically at graduates of contemporary jewellery, born and educated
in Asia and now (summer 2013) finishing their bachelor or master in contemporary jewellery in either
an academia in Asia or abroad
• The entry must consist of one of the current graduation pieces
• There is no application fee involved

Due to the space we can only exhibit wearable jewellery. Submissions of installations or photography will not be accepted.
The selection for the Graduation exhibition will be based on the personal choice of the owner and curator of Ubi Gallery. A personal and creative language, skilled use of material, a worked through concept – all are taken into consideration while making the selection.
The selection for the Gold, Silver and Bronze award will be done by a jury of professionals from the field of contemporary jewellery from Asia.

There will be a promotion exhibition for the top three winners at Ubi Gallery within a year after the Top
Young 2013 exhibition. For all 3 award winners the gallery will organize media events.
