Chus Burés: A Dialogue Between Art and Design
Spanish artist-jeweler Chus Burés presents his most recent collection, “Chus x Chus,” in partnership with El Museo del Barrio, New York’s leading Latino cultural institution, as part of NYC Jewelry Week 2018.
With a professional career spanning over thirty years, in which he has collaborated with contemporary artists and leading names in both the design and fashion world, Chus Burés introduces Chus x Chus, a New-York-based brand that acts as an incubator of creativity and serves up fresh takes on classic pieces..
With the mission to educate and promote jewelry as a vehicle and expression of artistic design, from November 14 to 18, the designer will host an installation at El Museo’s La Tienda presenting a highly curated selection of artisanal jewelry works, and wearable artist’s jewelry in collaboration with modern masters.
Burés has collaborated with contemporary artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Carmen Herrera, Julio Le Parc, Miquel Barceló, and Tony Bechara, and participated in directorial projects with fashion houses such as Loewe, Agnés b., Maurizio Galante, and Akris.
His strong creative personality derives initially from time spent studying interior design at the Llotja School in Barcelona, which is where he hails from. However, from an early age he developed a passion for body language and the language of clothing, which then paved the way to designing jewelry, his artistic forte ever since. For more than 30 years, Chus has designed fashion accessories and worked with photographers, film directors and visual artists from around the world. Jewels by Chus Burés have been admired and worn by eminent personalities from the world of art and culture, musicians, politicians and other celebrities –Paul Bowles, Robert Wilson, Dore Ashton, Zaha Hadid, Pierre Restany and Geraldine Chaplin, to name but a few– and his designs form part of prominent public and private collections in Europe, the United States and Latin America.
