Wed, 24.11.2010–Sun, 27.02.2011

Every three years the “Eligius“ Jewelry Award of the Federal State of Salzburg competition is held, open to entrants from all over Austria. Mainly young artists producing innovative works take part in the competition, with the selection offering an overview of today’s jewelry scene in Austria. This year for the first time, a presentation will take place in the MAK, in cooperation with the Traklhaus in Salzburg, where the objects, selected and given awards by an expert jury, will be on display before.

MAK Study Collection In the Study Collection, the MAK exhibits selected objects of its extensive collection on a permanent basis. The arrangement by materials corresponds to the specializations of the collection’s curators, while the selection is based mainly on major lines of development. Temporary exhibitions offer an opportunity to cast a spotlight on various aspects of the collection and to consider objects in the collection between the poles of applied and contemporary art.
