Venice and American Studio Glass
Stanze del Vetro 2020-03-29 through 2020-07-26
The exhibition Venice and American Studio Glass gathers together outstanding examples of contemporary art, craft, and design in glass by American artists. Organized by the Stanze del Vetro in Venice, Italy, this exhibition is the first to closely examine the impact of traditional Venetian glassworking techniques and the Venetian aesthetic on American studio glass made from the 1960s to the present. Venice and American Studio Glass explores the impact of Venetian traditions on contemporary American art in glass, the impact of American artists on Venice, and how American and Venetian artists renewed the creativity and vibrancy of a historic glass language. The exhibition is curated for the Stanze del Vetro by Tina Oldknow and William Warmus, both former curators of contemporary glass at The Corning Museum of Glass. The exhibition is accompanied by a richly illustrated catalogue with a critical essay by William Warmus, a historical essay by Tina Oldknow, and other important perspectives by Venetian glass historian Rosa Barovier Mentasti, American glass historian Howard Lockwood, and American artist and independent curator Kim Harty. Two exhibition artists who have been highly influential in the development of American studio glass are James Carpenter, who is designing the catalogue, and Dan Dailey, who is designing the exhibition at the Stanze del Vetro in Venice.
