VC will be present at the European Artistic Craft Dates next week

For the 4th consecutive year Vacheron Constantin shall sponsor various events and exhibitions taking place during the European Artistic Craft Days in Paris, London, Milano and Western Switzerland.

Here is the program:

Paris: 3-21 April

Period Romm - Palais Tokyo
  The exhibition takes its inspiration from contemporary attempts to decompartmentalise disciplines like design, visual arts, fashion, and graphic design. It aims to incite the participating artists, artisans and a scenographic architect to imagine what a Period Room of the contemporary era might look like. Their joint endeavours will give rise to a reciprocal exchange of knowledge and competencies between visual arts and applied arts.    The Period Room will bring together six collaborative efforts between artists and craftspeople, along with the participation of an architect (Elias Guenoun), a designer (Martino Gamper) and a graphic designer (Philippe Millot). The visual artists taking part were chosen by Gallien Dejean, curator of the exhibition, and include both up and coming and well-known artists on the international artistic scene. The list of artistic craftspeople was compiled by drawing upon the expertise of the French National Artistic Crafts Institute. Each collaboration is to produce a one-of-a-kind creation or a limited series. 
From April 3-5 a gemsetter will also be present at the Vacheron Constantin boutique to demonstrate his art

London 3-5 April

In London, the Manufacture has joined with Walpole, the UK’s benchmark organisation for furthering the interests of the British luxury industry, to support the exhibition project “Crafted: Makers of the Exceptional”. Focusing on the theme of excellence, it brings together works by young artistic craftspeople at the Royal Academy of Arts, Burlington Gardens. 

The exhibition will be showcasing a collection of 28 of Britain’s most talented and pioneering artisans, who will be exhibiting a selection of exceptional raw materials and desirable and valuable finished works.

From April 3-5 a master engraver will also be present to demonstrate his skills that combine intricacy, prestige and elegance; along with our newest collection of stunning open-worked timepieces.
 
Milano 1-13 April
  Under the patronage of the city of Milan, Vacheron Constantin, in partnership with the Cologni Foundation for Artistic Crafts Professions, is sponsoring a number of ateliers that will open to the public. The highlight will be an exhibition that features photographs by Tiziana and Gianni Baldizonne, « Transmettre, Percorsi di Sapere »,  exploring the transmission of the know-how around the world, at the Pinacoteca di Brera. 
Furthermore from on April 9 a master engraver shall be present at the retailer Pisa to demonstrate his craft

Geneva and Lausanne 4-5 April
  Thanks to a partnership with the City of Geneva, the public will be able to view craft demonstrations in various cultural institutions in the Canton of Geneva, as well as the main exhibition held at the Maison Tavel. For the first time, Geneva’s neighbouring Canton of Vaud will be taking part in the JEMA and will open the doors to several artisans' ateliers. 
April 4 will also see tha launch of the new exhibition to be held at the Maison vacheron Constantin "Travels and Ornaments"
