A/dornment is a curatorial integrated project dedicated to contemporary art jewelry.
Founded by Ilaria Ruggiero, it aims to develop the knowledge and consciousness of contemporary jewelry as artistic discipline and as ground search for technique, aesthetics and philosophy.
The main mission is to cultivate and stimulate a bigger and wider audience, by developing the knowledge and consciousness of contemporary jewelry as artistic discipline especially towards outsiders of the field and tangibly by making partnership with different organizations for the development of activities and initiatives destined to a broader public.
The letter A has symbolically privative meaning since jewelry is not (just) an embellishment, but it is treated here as artistic element.
Beyond any beauty, ornament or decoration.
The purpose of art is to compensate for our eternal imperfection
