The concept of the Jewellery Room is to bring together contemporary jewellery galleries to complete to program of the biennial and allow the public an upclose view and the possibility to buy works by some of the best of today’s artists. Lisbon has know jewellery galleries for over 30 year and has a small but faithfull and knowledgeable public, reinforced in recent years by a large number of expats who chose Portugal has their main residence. The selected number of international galleries in the Jewellery Room will be complemented two Portuguese galleries, by a book stand, an experimental project and artist talks.
GALERIA ALICE FLORIANO was inaugurated in 2015 in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Its aim is to show and promote contemporary jewellery as an artistic movement and cultural expression. Jewellery designer and gallerist Alice Floriano presents well-established artists as well as emerging talent from a worldwide setting in her gallery, thereby offering space and visibility to those at the start of their careers but with consistent, promising work. Apart from its permanent space in Porto Alegre, the gallery began in 2017/2018 to operate regularly on an itinerant basis in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and other Brazilian cities, and provide increasing opportunities for the public to access extraordinary wearable art, which is still little known in Brazil. The gallery now represents nearly fifty jewellery designers and regularly selects new names to include in its catalogue. In 2019, the gallery took part in the first Milan Jewellery Week. Throughout 2020, it has remained very active with its social and educational programmes and its participation in the Athens Jewellery Week. Alice Floriano
GALERIE BEYOND is based in Antwerp since the year 2000 and active as a gallery specialized in contemporary jewellery. The gallery represents Belgian and International artists who are committed to develop art jewellery that are mostly one of a kind and communicating the artists' inspiration or free expression.
Covid-19 has forced us to rethink our strategy and we have reorganised our art space as a work-in-process gallery. We are putting an extra focus on presentations which are ongoing and changing installations next to the more static exhibitions which we recently relaunched under the title ‘A Table for Two’, a series of mini duo expositions with work of our permanent artists. In order to connect with our customers and audience worldwide we aim to be more present in the virtual world and are regularly sending out newsletters that highlight a fine selection of the newest work in the field. Our website will gradually become an archive of the gallery and a tribute to the artists we represent. The installations and the exhibitions in the gallery are changing on a regular basis in cooperation with promising or established talent and are an inspiring selection of art jewellery, objects and visuals. Collect art jewellery and art objects with your heart in a conscious way! Karin De Buysere and René Darmon.
GALERIE DOOR founded in 2017 in Nijmegen, Netherlands, shows contemporary jewellery and fine art by (inter)national artists and designers, both young talent and graduates as well as established names such as Philip Sajet, Mielle Harvey, Idiots (Afke Golsteijn, Floris Bakker) and Typhaine le Monnier. Founder Doreen Timmers, trained as an art historian, continuously looks for experimental and conceptual art pieces. The designs and art pieces on display are exciting, a lust for the eye and a tantalizer for the brain. Some because of their directness, others through the original stories and others again for the poetry and humor they convey. What they all share, however, is their fine craftsmanship. You will discover brooches, drawings, necklaces, paintings, rings at the verge of autonomous visual art and applied art. Doreen Timmers
GALERIE SPEKTRUM was founded in 1981 by Marianne Schliwinski and Jürgen Eickhoff, as a gallery with contemporary jewellery as the main subject, but it also shows photography, drawing, sculpture, painting, installation. Spektrum is the oldest still working gallery for contemporary jewellery in Germany. Beside the «gallery-job» the gallery is since 1982 also editor, mostly for publications to contemporary jewellery.  Up to now, there has been edited more than 60 titles.
The gallery has organized and curated different itinerant exhibitions so as «Gerd Rothmann – Ohrschmuck» (1984), in Zurich (Swizerland), Darmstadt (Alemanha) and Arnhem (The Netherlands)«Affenliebe, Hexenbesenbesen und Samurai» (1986), in Belgium, The Netherland and Germany; «Was Ihr Wollt» (1993), photography and jewellery at the Badische Landesmuseum, in Karlsruhe; «Transit: 20 contemporary jewellery from Israel», Schmuckmuseum in Pforzheim, Deitsches Goldschmiedeaus, in Hanau (Germany); Villa Bengel, in Idar-Oberstein (Germany) and Bayerischer Kunstgewerbeverein, in Munich (Germany).  
GALERIE VICEVERSA is pleased to present a special selection of the works of Sophie Hanagarth (CH/FR), Terhi Tolvanen (FI/FR) and Pedro Sequeira (PT) at this Biennial of Contemporary Jewellery in Lisbon. In a world in perpetual evolution, designers marvel at an infinite universe and at the same time confront the questions of current values. A piece of jewellery, a predestined object of artistic expression, has a social dimension, which is inevitably linked to identity. The jewel, object that we wear on ourselves, with which we maintain a privileged and even intimate relationship, accompanies us in our private space as well as in public places. The multiple approaches of the different artists presented at the Viceversa gallery have in common a reflexive approach, an immersion in the present time as well as a desire to share their preoccupations while taking aesthetic decisions. For more than twenty years ilona Schwippel and Christian Balmer have been living their passion for author jewellery and creating a link between the exceptional piece and the person who finds himself in it.
STET — LIVROS & FOTOGRAFIAS is bookshop in Lisbon, specialized in photo books, artist books and author editions. This project was born as a critical platform for the debate and presentation of photo editions, promoting the circulation of Portuguese artist and importing international publishers. We have independent and classical editions, artist books, author editions, cheap and expensive, weird and special. With limited editions, new or rare ones, in book or photo print. We organize regular events, inside and outside our space (and country), from debates to book fairs or book presentations.

ANONYMOUS ART PROJECT is a collective that started in 2019 with the aim to build a field of “Art” woks in the abandoned lands of Pitões das Júnias. From there it grew into publications, music, photography, documentary and now contemporary jewellery. The jewellery project, as well as the rest, is connected with the use of simple things that are close to us and give them the recognition of precious/beautiful. We are using stones with no commercial value, caught by us in the land of this country and presenting them as precious. Our current proposal is with «birthing» stones but other will follow, the title: Jewels For Paupers.
TINCAL LAB is a contemporary jewellery work+shop space founded by Portuguese jeweller Ana Pina. It opened its doors in June 2015 on a second floor space at Rua de Cedofeita, in downtown Porto. In the end of 2018 it moved to a new home in the heart of Porto Art District: CCBombarda, shop 25. Under the motto «curating and experimenting in contemporary jewellery», Tincal lab regularly launches collaborations and events that help to promote this amazing creative area, such as workshops with invited jewellers, individual and collective exhibitions, featuring works by local and international artists. Highlight for the «Tincal lab Challenge», an annual event that since 2015 gathers exclusive works by about 50 international jewellers in a collective thematic exhibition of unique characteristics. Ana Pina
CASA FORTUNATO presents objects made beautifully, sculptures that draw the imagination and paintings that bring meaning are the natural touchstones for Casa Fortunato’s studio and something we like to foster supporting young talents as well as those legacy heroes. Decorative pieces, ceramics, jewellery, painting and sculpture are conversation-worthy and have a legacy of past and future. Items that will be collectables, just look wonderful and add that Wunderkammer aspect to the home, the hotel and to the creative office space. Take Kukas, a 93-year-old Portuguese designer who is a prolific creator and one that Casa Fortunato has long been working with. We act as her ambassador ensuring that her story continues long into the future, besides, we simply love her and her works! We work with contemporary artists shaping the art scene, and have a lineup of some amazing works of art to add substance to the four walls.
