We know the people of Jaipur has an undeniable love for art and fashion, and we believe JAS serves the right purpose by showcasing the talent of Jaipurites to the world, all while giving the people of Jaipur a chance to experience jewellery differently. The choice of items and the amount of inspiration is going to be simply iconic, this is an exclusive chance for Jaipurites to experience jewellery, art, and fashion, from all over the city. Rather than going in a shop with limited designs and a particular design language, you get to experience and explore everything under one roof, and this is what makes JASa one of a kind opportunity.

The Jewellers Association started in 1927 with 37 members as an effort to bring together the jewellers of Jaipur, currently, there are over 3000 members of the Jewellery Association. The show is aimed at providing the jewellery enthusiasts and jewellery lovers a platform for converging, planting and exchanging new ideas, all while drawing inspiration from others.

Earlier, the contemporary art exhibitions and shows have remained limited to metro cities— may be because a majority of contemporary artists and buyers are based there. To cater to that, these metro cities have a strong infrastructure of art galleries and institutions. But over the past few years, Rajasthan’s capital- Jaipur has seen a major uplift in terms of art and art exhibitions. The contemporary art is steadily getting the good response in the city and hence the heritage city is now offering some really interesting infrastructures for contemporary art exhibitions.

Jawahar Kala Kendra

After its marvelous facelift in 2016, the Jawahar Kala Kendra (JKK) has become the favorite of contemporary artists in the city. It has lined up exciting programmes on its calendar for the same.

The autonomous set-up of Jawahar Kala Kendra now exhibits fascinating art shows for the connoisseurs of the city. The institution has set the bar high with monumental retrospectives of senior artists like Himmat Shah, titled The Euphoria Of Being (December 2017), which included works from the collection of Kiran Nadar Museum of Art (KNMA) in Jaipur. “His works reference Rajasthan, his lineage.

Another promising set- up for contemporary art exhibition is the Gyan Museum in Jaipur.  It is a private initiative launched in 2016. The late collector and gemologist Gyan Chand began his journey of collecting antiquities with two silver hookah mouthpieces, gifted by his father when he was 16. The museum now treasures more than 2,500 objects. In a striking building, which was designed by French designer Paul Mathieu, the collection is on display with an aim to inspire dialogue.
