Collect brings together 40 galleries from the UK, USA, South Korea, Japan, France, Norway, Italy, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden. It offers visitors and collectors a multidisciplinary overview of the people, processes, materials and ideas defining international craft in 2018.
from this year’s press release:”Always a fascinating area of discovery for established collectors and newcomers alike,
contemporary art jewellery continues to evolve as a platform for challenging material values and to
explore intriguing concepts. From the Netherlands, Galerie Marzee has devoted 40 years to
celebrating jewellery’s dimension as an art form – its annual Marzee International Graduation Show
has impacted the careers of artists throughout the world. This year, Marzee’s selection includes
work by the German artist Dorothea Prühl, whose sculptural jewellery pieces exemplify her
philosophy that an artwork needs no meaning outside itself, while the UK’s Gallery S O features
artists including wearable pieces by Switzerland’s irrepressibly playful David Bielander and UKbased
Paralympic medal designer (and recent Woman’s Hour Craft Prize finalist) Lin Cheung.
Appearing for the first time, The Goldsmiths’ Fair presents 15 British artists at the forefront of
modern gold- and silversmithing.”

CODA Museum in Apeldoorn will show the exhibition Marzee for Starters at CODA Museum from the 8th of November 2017 until the 14th of January 2018. Immediately after entering this leading museum in the field of jewellery, this exhibition will show an overview of a great variety of works by recently graduated jewellery artists from the most renowned schools and academies across the world. This means that design and process are as varied as there are selected works.
Galerie Marzee initiated the Marzee for Starters project to promote artists who participated in Marzee’s Annual International Graduate Show. The exhibition in CODA Museum will feature works of artists that graduated in 2016 and 2017.
