Last Tuesday October 12th (in a very symbolic Dia de la Raza) the exhibition Think Again: New Latin American Jewelry opened at the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC with a record inaugural attendance of 700 guests. 46 of the 85 artists whose work was presented at the exhibition attended the opening, making it again a cheerful, fun and emotive event. The response of the audience in NYC demonstrates that the arena of contemporary jewellery is ready to really incorporate cultural diversity and the work on display shows the talent, originality and intensity that converge in the work of this talented group of artists from Latin America.
The Otro Diseno Foundation is extremely greatful to the Museum of Arts and Design, its director Holly Hotchner and its jewellery curator Ursula Neuman for the enthusiasm and effort to present Think Again by the first time in the USA. But, above all, we wish to thank all the artist for their trust in this project and the amazing talent that, we hope, will reach other latitudes.
