Lovers from Prague: Czech Jewellery

6 October – 30 December 2010

Lovers from Prague: Czech Jewellery is the first major exhibition in Korea to explore the significance of Czech jewellery as one of the important European design movements of the 20th century.

The 100 works of jewellery featured in the exhibition include the famous Czech garnet jewellery and the iconic works by Svatopluk Kasaly, Eva Eisler, Pavel Opocensky, Stanislava Grebenickova and Petr Dvorak.

The exhibition presents the two tendencies that are taking place in the Czech jewellery scene. The historical traditions of Bohemian garnet jewellery are carried on by Granat Turnov and the syndicate’s creations are appreciated by lovers of Bohemian garnet from all over the world. From the 1960s there has been a new breed of Czech artists testing the boundaries of art and challenging the public with their revolutionary concepts of jewellery. The jewellery created by these artists demonstrates their commitment to artistic freedom and expansion of expression.

Lovers from Prague: Czech Jewellery is organized by the World Jewellery Museum and the Embassy of the Czech Republic to the Republic of Korea.
