The following information is from Ted Noten:



Last Sunday, November 23d, Ted Noten was awarded with the Francoise van den Bosch Award, an international prize for jewellery makers. The prize consist of €5000,- and a purchase by the foundation.


We have combined the award ceremony with a catwalk presentation for the opening of a solo-exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum's-Hertogenbosch.

Ted explicitly did not want to show his works in glass boxes on socles, and he has always wanted to organize a catwalk show with professional models. We have collaborated with the Amsterdam Fashion Institute in organizing this event and have attracted many professionals that have (partly) donated their services. During the show, 12 models wore 12 pieces from Ted’s oeuvre.


After all models returned and placed their items on wooden circles on stage, the lights went off and 9 working men entered the room with perspex covers. All works were covered, lights went on again and there was the expo that stands for 6 weeks (until January 11th).

The works in the show were made in the period from 1995-2008.

On January 11th, a symposium will be held with the title Out of the Box, talks by Susan Pietzsch (D), James Beighton (UK) and Gert Staal (NL)

From February, the catwalk installation will stand in Belgium for the Hasselt Triennial for Fashion, Design and Art, alongside Inez van Lamsweerde/Vinoodh Matadin.
