THE MARZEE INTERNATIONAL GRADUATE SHOW
The Marzee International Graduate Show is undoubtedly the highlight of our exhibition calendar and with it we aim to endorse the work of a new generation of jewellery artists; to increase their exposure to the wider public and to encourage a dialogue between makers and their wearers.
The first Marzee Graduate Show took place in 1986 and since then has grown from a modest exhibition, showing work by a small number of students from the Dutch schools – the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, the Academie Beeldende Kunsten in Maastricht and ArtEz Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Arnhem – to an event unparalleled in size and scope. Since 1995, the show has included students from a growing number of international schools and academies, providing a fascinating insight into the ideas and preoccupations that motivate young artists from around the world.
Every year we award the Marzee Graduate Prize to a number of the most promising graduates in recognition of their outstanding work. The prizewinners are offered a week-long residency at the Ravary estate in Belgium and the work created is then exhibited during the following year’s Graduate Show.
