The art of wearing art: Igor Mitoraj’s jewellery

Category:

In partnership with Atelier Mitoraj, Contini Art Gallery is proud to present for the very first time The art of wearing art: Igor Mitoraj’s jewellery at Calle Larga XXII Marzo in Venice.

Opened to public fanfare on May 19, this exhibition displays a selection of exquisite jewellery. The relationships between tradition, taste, harmony and beauty come to the forefront – the very aspects that define the artist’s work. Mitoraj pays attention to jewellery, which rather than being viewed as a mere accessory is revered as an artistic masterpiece to be worn.
