Vacheron Journe Artisti
Vacheron Constantin dedicated itself to the “Les Journées des Métiers d’Art” or “JEMA” for the fourth consecutive year, showcasing in Paris, London, Milan and Geneva, where four different conceptual exhibitions aimed to connect the public with the field of contemporary art and its artists.
A photographic exhibition entitled “Transmettre. Percorsi di Sapere” was held in Milan, and highlighted the traditional skills transmitted through a collection of 80 pictures taken over a threeyear period around the world. It conveyed to the audience authentic human relationships witnessed through the bond between a master and his apprentice.
In London, a talented assembly of designers and craftspeople gathered at the Royal Academy of Arts for a cocktail hosted by Vacheron Constantin, in honor of the “Crafted – Makers of the Exceptional” exhibition that would take place. Amongst the esteemed exhibitors was Method Studio, commissioned by Vacheron Constantin to handcraft a custom oak and leather watch case for their tourbillon minute repeater.
An exhibition aptly named “Period Room” was held in Paris at the Palais de Tokyo, presenting the knowledge and skills demonstrated by artists and artisans through their innovative and contemporary interdisciplinary creations.
Lastly, in Geneva, a watchmaker and engraver from the Maison were on hand to display their master skills for those visiting the “L’art et la Matière” exhibition. By demonstrating the various stages of caliber construction and dial decoration, the exhibition aimed to engage the public closer with the oftentimes, mysterious world of horology.
