Exhibition "Touch-sensitive", Latvia

From 8 February to 21 April 2024, the Museum of Decorative Arts and Design in Riga (Skārņu iela 10) hosts a spectacular exhibition Touch-sensitive organized by the Latvian Jewellery Art Association in which the works of 23 authors are revealed in relation to the owners of jewellery, demonstrating a wide range of individual creative stylistics of different generations of artists and emphasizing the development and succession of the industry.

The idea of the exhibition is based on the stories about people, the jewellery they have chosen and the artists behind the works. The title of the project also describes the nature of jewellery – to be in contact with a human body. The exposition presents the artists’ newly-created original works, the stories about the creative experience of each designer, and the moment when the piece of jewellery finally meets its owner.
