The exhibition curated by me showcases paradigmatic jewellery creations by African artists from various regions. The selected masterpieces of ethnic and contemporary African art jewellery reflect the extraordinary cultural diversity of the continent and the simultaneity of tradition and modernity. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue.

The exhibition is complemented by some of my own works and creations of selected contemporary artists from Europe, all of which are inspired by the multifaceted African cultures.
An 8-page article about the exhibition was published in the current issue of ARTAUREA.
