They create shapes, develop concepts of artistic creation, explore glass by mixing chemistry and technology, materials and media; they are craftsmen, visual artists, designers, technicians…
At the beginning of the 21st century, after new practices appeared in the last century, making glass a material for artistic expression, glassmakers shook more than ever before the ancestral processes of glass making and the status of the craftsman .
In 2019, the Museum is dedicating an exhibition to a generation of glass artists in France, close to what glass has been since 2000, what glass is today and what glass will be, maybe, tomorrow.
The exhibition "Today and Tomorrow" presents the creations of 70 artists and designers to reflect a moment of glass in France. It brings together emerging creators with a multitude of expressions: from the design and decorative object to video / performance through sculpture and digital uses ... An exploration of the material that seems to have no limit, like an echo of the Studio Glass movement, which have develop the use of glass in art.
This diversity of approaches makes this exhibition surprising. It occupies all the spaces of the museum, thus creating aesthetic and temporal shocks, dialogues of forms and techniques.
EXHIBITION 2018 extended in 2019, FROM APRIL 1st to OCTOBER 15th
