Alchimia Contemporary Jewelry School is happy to present Unveiled, a group exhibition opening at its premises on Friday July 15, 2016.

In a dramatic yet playful setting, draping the school’s characteristic renaissance features into a muted white cube space, the exhibition showcases the work of 13 international graduates of Alchimia’s 2nd year BFA program.

The artistic endeavors presented here are extremely varied in technique and form, yet certain conceptual threads can be found. Narratives dealing with memory, secrets and storytelling speak in the work of Bonnie Hsu, Marisa Leenutaphong, Margaret Munchheimer, Ziwei Yi, and Zhang Ziji; while Clara Nguyen and Daria Olejniczak weave in reflections on societal issues; whereas Anna Hui, Eleonora Natali, and Yanis Turcarelli attempt to manifest records of emotional events.

An inquiry into the interaction of form and the sensory experience constitute the basis of work by Irene Belfi and Lina Gorbach, while Vanessa Karla conducts experiments in materiality, with food as her primary element.

During the opening night food, drinks and music will be served, in cathartic celebration of the end of a successful and passionate year.
