“GLASSTRESS. WINDOW TO THE FUTURE” IN THE HERMITAGE
In 2009 the Berengo Studio launched the Glasstress project. During all these years more than 300 artists, designers, architects and painters from all around the world have embodied their own highly diverse conceptions in glass with help of Murano glassblowers. For more than a decade the project has been a partner of Venice Biennale and presented unique craftsmanship in exhibitions all over the globe.
The exhibition (open till October, 31) features more than 500 works created in glass by contemporary artists on the Venetian island of Murano. The list of participants includes such famous figures as Ai Weiwei, Renate Bertlmann, Koen Vanmechelen, Michael Joo, Joseph Kosuth, Petah Coyne, Mat Collishaw and Laure Prouvost.
