We are very excited to announce a fascinating temporary exhibition at MIBA, Museu d’Idees i Invents de Barcelona (‘Museum of Ideas and Inventions of Barcelona’ in English) that is going to take place from November 2012 to May 2013. There are two reasons why we are so thrilled:
- This Steampunk Exhibition is the first Steampunk-themed expo at MIBA.
- Some of our jewelry pieces are going to be part of it.
There is no need to say that this recognition is a great satisfaction for us. Besides, we feel most honored to do our bit to spread Steampunk and to do it from Spain.

2.- About the Steampunk Exhibition at MIBA – Barcelona, Spain
As per its curator, Elisabet Roselló, the objective of this exhibition is to disseminate Steampunk and take this retrofuturism as point of departure to promote reflection about the present. Outstanding inventions of both national and international artists are going to be part of the exhibition, showing a large array of Steampunk-inspired pieces of art as demonstration of the overwhelming creative power of this artistic movement.
