Venice - Exhibition

Glasstress 2019

Fondazione Berengo Art Space

09 May 201924 Nov 2019

Organised by Fondazione Berengo, the sixth edition of “Glasstress” brings together a new line- up of leading contemporary artists from Europe, the United States, Latin America, India, and China in an ambitious exhibition exploring the endless creative possibilities of glass. To celebrate 10 years of “Glasstress” and 30 years of Berengo Studio, the exhibition goes back to its historical roots on the island of Murano. An old abandoned glass furnace is now an evocative exhibition space for striking new works and installations by returning artists Ai Weiwei, Tony Cragg and Thomas Schütte as well as first time participants Prune Nourry, José Parlá and Xavier Veilhan, amongst others.

The exhibition is closed on Wednesday.
