Final Exhibition – Murano Glass Museum – 18.4.2015 – 7.6.2015
From 18 April to 7 June 2015, the Murano Glass Museum will hold the final exhibition of European Glass Experience, curated by Museo del Vetro Director, Chiara Squarcina. This exhibition is the summation of previous venues, and exhibits all sketches and artworks included in this European Union-sponosred project.
In Venice, the 40 artworks previously exhibited in Finland, Spain and Portugal, and the sketches selected by the scientific committee, will be shown to the public. This final exhibition also includes the realization of ca. 20 sketches by the glass maestros of the Consorzio Promovetro of Murano. These companies carry the Vetro Artistico® Murano trademark, and guarantee a Venetian artisanal production and excellence. These new and unreleased artworks represent the essence of EGE project itself: glass craftsmen and glass artists working together, and creating something unique.
EGE is born from the collaboration between the City of Venice, Consorzio Promovetro Murano and the Fondazione Musei Civici of Venice, and it is coordinated by Cornelia Lauf.
Many are the European countries represented, with artworks coming from Austria, Czech Republic, Finland, France, UK, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Germany, Hungary, but also international countries, like Argentina, Israel and Turkey.
