The concept of the Jewelery Room is to bring together contemporary jewelry galleries, completing the Biennale's exhibition program and allowing the public to see up close and purchase pieces by some of the best contemporary artists. Lisbon has had contemporary jewelry galleries for over thirty years and a small but loyal and knowledgeable audience, increased in recent years by the numerous foreigners who have made Portugal their permanent residence. A chosen group of international galleries will be accompanied by a Portuguese gallery, based in Porto, which travels to Lisbon for this purpose, as well as a “meeting and information point” for the Biennale and book sales run by PIN.


opened in 2015, with the purpose of disseminating and promoting contemporary jewelry as an artistic movement and cultural expression, in the city of Porto Alegre, Brazil. Jewelry artist and gallerist Alice Floriano presents established artists and new talents from the world stage, thus giving space and visibility to those who are at the beginning of their career, but already present consistent and promising work. From 2017/2018, in addition to the permanent gallery in Porto Alegre, it began to operate on an occasional and itinerant basis in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and other Brazilian cities, expanding opportunities for public access to this extraordinary portable art. still little widespread in Brazil. The gallery currently represents around fifty jewelry artists and regularly selects new names to join its catalogue. In 2019, the gallery participated in the first edition of Milan Jewelry Week. Throughout 2020, it was active, incorporating social and educational actions into its activities, and participated in Athens Jewelry Week. Alice Floriano


— specialized in contemporary jewelry — has been based in Antwerp since 2000 and represents Belgian and international artists committed to developing artistic jewelry based on unique pieces and communicating the artist's inspiration or free expression. Covid-19 forced us to rethink our strategy and we reorganized our space as a gallery-in-development. We are focused on presentations that are installations in process and mutation, alongside more static exhibitions such as those we recently relaunched under the title «Table for Two», a series of small duo exhibitions featuring work by our permanent artists. To maintain connections with customers and our audience around the world, we want to be more present in the virtual world and we send regular newsletters that present a careful selection of the most recent work. Our website is gradually becoming an archive of the gallery and a tribute to the artists it represents. The installations and exhibitions in the gallery change regularly in cooperation with up-and-coming and established talents and are an inspiring selection of artistic jewellery, objects and images. Collect artistic jewelry and artistic objects with your heart and consciously! Karin De Buysere and René Darmont.


is a contemporary jewelry studio and store founded by Portuguese jeweler Ana Pina. It opened its doors in June 2015, on a second floor on Rua de Cedofeita, in downtown Porto. At the end of 2018, it found a new home in the heart of the Arts Quarter: CCBombarda, store 25. Under the motto “curation and experimentation in contemporary jewelry” collaborations and events are regularly launched that help promote and boost this rich creative area, such as workshops with guest jewelers, individual and collective exhibitions, by local and international artists. Highlight is the «Desafio Tincal lab», an annual event that, since 2015, brings together exclusive works from around fifty international jewelers in a collective thematic exhibition with unique characteristics.

The Galerie Handwerk is a cultural institution run by the Handwerkskammer für München und Oberbayern (Chamber of Crafts Munich and Upper Bavaria). A showcase of Bavarian commerce and crafts, the gallery is dedicated to conveying to the general public an idea of ​​the excellent skills of today's artisans and the contribution they make to society.

Galerie Handwerk, which was initially founded as a private gallery in 1968, has exhibited almost 400 exhibitions to date, becoming well-known both in Germany and internationally.

Organizing seven exhibitions a year, Galerie Handwerk gives crafts a highly visible presence on the Munich scene. The themes of the exhibition reflect all the diverse functions of crafts in culture and society. They range from applied art and crafts, through trades and architecture, through the maintenance of protected monuments, to design teaching and training curricula in the trades. Presentations cover traditional, classical and avant-garde approaches. And they extend beyond regional developments to encompass those occurring nationally and internationally. As this implies, the gallery makes a significant contribution to the dissemination and advancement of crafts throughout the world.

In addition to exhibitions, Galerie Handwerk offers a wide program of educational events. These include specialist lecture series held at the Handwerkskammer, workshops on current exhibition themes and guided tours for school and craft classes. The gallery's efforts to document the cultural achievements of artisans at the highest level are reflected in a series of catalog publications dedicated to selected exhibition themes. Over the years, Galerie Handwerk has developed an increasingly diverse exhibition design that has sparked the public's interest in contemporary crafts and an appreciation of its cultural achievements.


The Quittenbaum Gallery is a topic very close to my heart. We exhibit non-figurative artworks by young international and German artists who aim to deal with special materials or conceptually generated aesthetic concepts. Art and studio jewelry is an important pillar of the gallery's program. Since 2020, Nadine Becker and Claudia Quittenbaum have curated exhibitions during Munich Jewelry Week on protagonists of the contemporary jewelry movement, including Hermann Jünger, Manfred Bischoff, Helga Zahn, Herman Hermsen, as well as Margit Hart and Fritz Maierhofer. We are delighted to have been invited to the Lisbon Contemporary Jewelery Biennial and we took this opportunity to present a series of conceptual jewelery works by Margit Hart, Rike Bartels, Manfred Bischoff, Zhipeng Wang and Nikita Kavryzhkin.
