Czech Jewelry Designers Meet NYC

exhibition

December 8, 2018 - December 16, 2018,

[2nd Floor]

Exhibition of the works of three Czech jewelers - Kristýna Malovaná, Eva Růžičková and Klára Šípková. The designers created collections specifically for the CCNY Gallery. The connecting motto of the exhibition is "Communication". Whether it's a conversation between partners, a personal interaction with the outside world or a contact between the Czech and American cultural scene, communication is a basic human need and desire. In addition, the jewelry is an interesting and prolific means of passing information. It can present the mood and taste of a wearer, often also reflecting social status and cultural knowledge. The expression of jewelry as a universal language was perfectly mastered by former US Foreign Minister Madeleine Albright, the owner of an extensive collection of brooches, which allowed her during her official and unofficial appearances to express her ideas without words. It is no coincidence that in Madam Secretary's collection one can also find a brooch by presented designer, Klára Šípková.

Free and open to the public. For more information, please visit www.czechcenter.com.
