Please join us Friday November 11 at 7pm for an artist talk with Beatrice Brovia.
Beatrice will be traveling here in support of her exhibition ‘Expenditures’ at JEWELERS’WERK in Washington, D.C. opening Nov. 5 and on view through Nov. 25. Her work is also included in CULT, the recent exhibition initiated by Current Obsession Magazine & Platform in collaboration with the Stedelijk Museum ’s-Hertogenbosch, Museum of Contemporary Art and Design in The Netherlands.
Designer Beatrice Brovia was born in Modena, Italy in 1985. She attended Politecnico di Milano, graduating in 2007, before earning her Masters in Jewelry and Corpus from Konstfack University in 2009. She opened a studio in Stockholm that same year. Brovia focuses primarily on jewelry, and finds motivation and inspiration for her designs in the medium’s ritualized and symbolic value.
In 2011, along with designer Nicolas Cheng, Brovia launched Conversation Piece, a collaborative art and design practice. Conversation Piece focuses on material culture and craftsmanship, and the partners’ work ranges from installations and interiors to conceptually-driven jewelry, furniture, and decorative arts.
Brovia’s work has been exhibited internationally since 2009 at venues such as Design Miami/Basel, the Milan Furniture Fair, Sungkok Art Museum in Seoul, and PAD Paris, among others. She lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.
