The 4th TRIPLE PARADE Biennale for Contemporary Jewellery, under the theme of "Three Times: Dialgoue Across the Past, the Present and the Future" is set to open on October 19, 2018 at the HOW Art Museum · Design Center, Shanghai. Jointly with the College of Design and Innovation, Tongji University, this biennale will present a series of exhibitions, symposiums, lectures, and workshops, along with the launch of a series of limited edition prints.

This 4th Biennale will feature, for the first time ever in Asia, a selection of nearly 500 unique artworks by nearly 300 artists hailing from 34 regions and countries. They include pieces selected through an open process of public participation that took place internationally over 18 months, as well as other pieces that were created specifically for this biennale by international masters of art and design (Section I “Intimate Encounter”), pieces presented by leading international galleries (Section II “Like Attracts Like”), those created by prominent contemporary visual artists for the first time of their artistic career (Section III “Arty Game”), and those pieces independently selected by curators from a dozen regions and countries, including the Netherlands, Italy, the UK, the USA, Australia and South Korea (Section IV “Viva La Different”).

This biennale will present to the Chinese public the cutting-edge of a diverse range of global contemporary jewellery creations, and open dialogues brimming with creativity and inspiration around the subjects of contemporary art, fashion, design and craft.

Collections of contemporary and modern jewellery are now found in nearly 60 national-level cultural and art institutions across the world, including a number of globally renowned galleries and museums. Most of these pieces of jewellery were created from the early or middle 20th century to this day. In the context of an unprecedentedly diverse outburst of concepts and approaches to art practice under the influence of postmodernism and related theories, jewellery began to be used by many artists and designers as a form of expression and a creative language, and gradually was embraced as an artistic specialty by professional artists.

Today, modern and contemporary jewellery is sought after by art connoisseurs, and has become a topic of museum research in the history of modern art theory and practice. Through thousands of years of evolution, jewellery has incorporated a plethora of meanings. Its breakthroughs at different times were fuelled by transformative designers, developments in crafts and techniques, changes in materials, or the emergence of new concepts and ideologies.
