Artesania Catalunya



Open to the Public



JOYA Barcelona Art Jewellery & Objects 2020

19 September to 29 November 2020

Since its first edition, JOYA Barcelona main goal has been to promote art jewellery, and now
more than ever, it reaffirms its commitment to promote the artists despite the current situation.

The 12th edition of JOYA will focus on the incorporation of new technologies in traditional crafts,
however, the current global pandemic situation has made us rethink our goals and commitment
to our artistic community.

This commitment had led us to reinvent ourselves in order to continue being an exhibition space
and meeting point for the artists nowadays.

The big change of this year is the format of JOYA, following the recommendations of the
Government of Spain, this year we will not hold a fair with a high concentration of public in order
to protect exhibitors and the general public from getting COVID-19. Therefore, an exhibition will
be held at the Artesania Catalunya (Banys Nous 11), of the Consortium of Commerce, Crafts and
Fashion (CCAM) of the Generalitat of Catalonia, from September 19 to November 29 following
all the corresponding sanitary measures.

Despite the new format, we have exceeded expectations; we will have more than 150 artists,
including schools, collectives and OFF JOYA events, with which we have worked throughout the
year in the production of videos, fashion editorials, previews with specialized galleries, online
sales, daily communication on social networks, closing with a worldwide auction by the
prestigious Klimt02 online platform.

As every year, we will award the best collection with the JOYA Award, previously chosen by a
specialized jury, as well as the DOR Museum Award, which will select a collection that will
become part of the museum's art jewellery collection. Galería Dterra and Ambar Magazine will
be in charge of awarding the students.
