Contemporary Jewellery in Context – a Handshake blueprint

The Dowse Art Museum, Lower Hutt (NZ), 5.8.–3.12.2017

To ‘reflect’ can mean both to mirror or to cast back and respond. In this exhibition, 12 jewellers who are a part of the Handshake project have been invited to draw connections between the term ‘reflect’ and the self-reflexive nature of contemporary jewellery, which both mimics and counteracts its traditional and commercial counterparts.


If you would like to get to know more about the unique mentoring programme that is Handshake, have a look at our catalogue.

Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum, Munich, 14.7.–19.11.2017

Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum honours German master ceramicist Beate Kuhn (1927–2015) with a grand exhibition.

The generous gift of architect Klaus Freiberger contains about 190 pieces which will be shown in the rotunda of the Pinakothek der Moderne.


After having Beate Kuhn as a guest of our very first weekend art gallery, Arnoldsche ist proud to publish an extensive catalogue on the occasion of the exhibition.

Von Spitzweg zu Sisi

Stadtmuseum Ingolstadt (DE), until 26.11.2017

In the Biedermeier scenes and idylls of the early works by Carl Spitzweg (1808–1885), odd misfits, soldiers, monks and maids are all featured in the middle-class provincial milieu of the time. Informed by a free painting style, however, the landscapes of his late works anticipate Impressionism.

The Stadtmuseum Ingolstadt shows paintings and drawings by Carl Spitzweg as well as wonderful arts-and-crafts objects from the Historicist Collection Werner Friedrich Ott – also lavishly illustration in our publication.
