Ojalá Project - Exhibition
November 19th - November 24th, 2016
La Madii, El Salvador 4742, 1414 Buenos Aires, Argentina
Ojalá Project (Buenos Aires) to be held during the first Bienal Latinoamericana de Joyería Contemporánea "Puentes" (Latin American Biennial of Contemporary Jewellery "Bridges") organized by Joyeros Argentinos and the Museo de Arte Popular José Hernández.
During the summer I was handed a mysterious canvas bag by my friend, Raissa Bump (check out her work, it's fantastic!). As it turns out, quite a few of these bags have changed hands over the last two years as part of the Ojalá Project. Within each bag were the beginnings of what would later become a jewelry piece. Each piece was passed to a new artist who would then add their touch to it and pass it on to the next person. The resulting pieces are a mix of aesthetics, artists, cultures, countries, and materials... each one unique to the hands it passed through.

Maria Clara Art Point, Brussels, Belgium
About the gallery:
"A Cultural oasis in the heart of the Brussels’ European area.
A stone throw’s away from Belliard street; a source of well-being and inspiration. Original ‘works of art’ are presented
to the visitor in the context of a working artist’s studio set in a typically "Bruxellois" ground floor interior. As we move through the sequence of rooms, one could stumble upon the artist at work or even art students, or admire creations
such as paintings, photographs, jewellery, lamps, sculptures, ceramics…from artists all nationalities taken together.
In transition, why not take a little pause in the cozy lounge where one can leaf through art books, sip a cup of tea in a jazzy atmosphere…"
