Museum Of Glass Presents Its Fifth Anniversary Exhibition

In celebration of its Fifth Anniversary, the Museum of Glass will present Mining Glass, a new exhibition that explores how the medium of glass has gained prominence in 21st century contemporary art.

Opening June 16, the exhibition will include nine large installations that will be displayed in two of the Museum’s three gallery spaces.

Mining Glass brings together eight internationally distinguished and influential contemporary artists who come from diverse cultural backgrounds and disciplines. These artists are: Wim Delvoye (Belgium), Teresita Fernández (United States), Mona Hatoum (Great Britain), Maya Lin (United States), Jean-Michel Othoniel (France), Kiki Smith (United States), Fred Wilson (United States), and the late Chen Zhen (China). While the artists of the Studio Glass movement have brought glass as a medium to the forefront of contemporary art, the artists selected for this exhibition have minimal relationship to that movement and tend to use glass differently in their work. Many have been mining glass for years for its exceptional flexibility of form and its propensity for eliciting emotional response.

“The duality of glass—precious, magical and mystical, yet common, practical and functional—makes it an attractive material for contemporary artists,” states curator Juli Cho Bailer. “The prominent use of glass in this exhibition invites the viewer to consider how the material has expanded beyond its traditional application in decorative and functional art.”
