SIERAAD Art Fair (SAF) is a 4-day fair in Amsterdam, which will host a selection of international jewellery designers. SAF is the only platform in the Netherlands where professional contemporary jewellery designers from home and abroad sell their work directly and in person. To add lustre to this edition of SAF there will be some special events and striking presentations.
UNPRECEDENTED SPLENDOUR at SIERAAD.
SIERAAD Art Fair will celebrate its 15th anniversary in November with an exceptional exhibition. The fair will feature a special selection from the largest ethnological jewellery collection in Holland. It is the outcome of an inspiring collaboration with the Amsterdam Tropenmuseum, the Ethnological Rijksmuseum in Leiden and the Africa Museum in Berg en Dal. At a fair where the visitor is surrounded by prominent international contemporary design, occasionally featuring very futuristic touches, this anniversary they choose to go back to the roots: to the ethnology of jewellery. Ethnological jewellery originates from and is connected with all possible milestones in life, with traditions, ancestor worship and the use as amulet, talisman and medicine. Jewellery is the bearer of symbols and wearable stories with a fascinating symbolic language.

FIRST ANTHOLOGY OF CODA’S JEWELLERY COLLECTION IN RENEWED EXHIBITION SPACE
In 2015 CODA Museum received a generous gift of € 255,000 from the BankGiro Lotterij for the renewal of the jewellery display gallery and to broaden the collection with fashion jewellery. In October of the same year the transference of the State jewellery collection took place. In recent months new display cases have been installed and lighting has been optimised. Thus, a refurbished exhibition space has been realised. CODA Museum presents the jewellery collection and the jewellery from the State collection in anthologies that will be reconstituted and revised every three months. The first anthology, on show from 12 June until 11 September, is accompanied by the presentation of Redefining Jewellery, a publication about CODA’s Jewellery collection.
CODA Museum has two collections to which artworks have been added for over 100 years: a historical collection and a collection of modern art. One of the most distinguishing components of the modern art collection is the selection of contemporary jewellery. This collection of approximately 6500 pieces has its origin in the sixties of the last century and will continue to grow in coming years through purchases, donations and legacies. It now is the largest museum collection of contemporary jewellery in the Netherlands. Due to the excellent quality of the Dutch academies many objects of Dutch makers are included. Yet, also the work of artists from other European countries, America and Asia is part of the CODA collection. The collection however focuses on the works of artists from Northern Europe.
The opening of the first anthology in the new and refurbished exhibition space will be combined with the presentation of Redefining Jewellery, a publication compiled by CODA director Carin Reinders. Redefining Jewellery focuses on the jewellery collection of CODA, it’s history, current state of affairs, development and future collection policy. Redefining Jewellery offers ample space to images of the featured objects and includes a register of all artist and an English translation.
