On the occasion of the first-ever The Venice Glass Week, AtemporaryStudio and Advantage Austria are going to bring the best glass design from Austria to Venice in an exhibition with a self-explanatory title: AUSTRIAN GLASS CORE.
Hosted at the evocative venue of Tana Art Space / Brick, an art exhibition space overlooking Fondamenta della Tana, in the area located between the Arsenale and the Giardini, from 10 September to 7 October 2017, the exhibition intends to represent the two faces of the Austrian glass design: on the one hand, the newest concepts conceived by contemporary creative minds, and on the other, the traditional icons that no longer function as mere style and design references, but are now atesting ground for new representations of tradition. AUSTRIAN GLASS CORE will exclusively premiere the latest creations by Sandra Fuchs and Eva Moosbrugger and will exhibit works by Robert Comploj, Doris Darling, those by Mark Braun, Sebastian Herkner, Stefan Sagmeister and Jessica Walsh for Lobmeyr, as well as by Lucy.D (Barbara Ambrosz), Vera Pure, Patrick Roth, Herbert Schmid, Barbara Votik, Bernd Weinmayer & Gerhard Hochmuth.
In addition, AUSTRIAN GLASS CORE was selected by Design.Ve – a platform devoted to the world of design launched in May 2016 by VeniceArtFactory – as a special event for the 2017 edition.
