This exhibition-event presents the fruit of a collaboration between 14 companies from Murano and 8 street artists, who were invited to realize a series of murals inside the Effetre Murano furnace. The common thread of this dialogue is colour, a distinctive feature of the unique pieces that the glass masters have produced, inspired by the works of the artists involved in the project. In Murano Glass Street Art two worlds which appear distant from each other, but united by creativity, craftsmanship, dexterity, gestures and executive ability, meet each other: the meeting between Murano masters and street artists is an unprecedented comparison between the centuries-old traditions of Murano and the most contemporary of art forms.
Tuesday 10th September at 6pm: live performances of street art and Murano artistic glass working (by invitation only).
