Galerie Marzee

Founded in 1978 by Marie-José van den Hout, Galerie Marzee is one of the principal promoters of contemporary jewellery and silverware and is the world’s largest gallery for modern art jewellery.

Each year Galerie Marzee curates a dynamic programme of exhibitions by a selection of its artists, with the annual International Marzee Graduate Show at its heart. As well as supporting and nurturing the creativity and diversity of emerging young artists, the gallery also houses the permanent Marzee Collection, representing some of the most influential jewellery artists of the late 20th century, and work by many of its artists can be seen in museum collections around the world, including London’s Victoria & Albert Museum.
