Tony Cragg and Hye Rim Lee are to feature alongside an impressive collection of artists in the exhibition Glassfever: Contemporary Art in Glass, opening across four locations in the Netherlands on the 30th of April, running until the 25th of September, 2016.
"Glass is a versatile and complex material. It can reflect light and allow it to pass through simultaneously, it can be clear and opaque, fluid and solid. For many years, glass was only use in applied art. In glassware, jewellery and decorative objects. In autonomous modern art, glass was never considered to be a fully-fledged material like bronze, marble or steel. Not until the 1960s was glass used as a material in modern art without preconception or artistic reserve. Adriano Berengo was a pioneer in this development. For over twenty-five years, Studio Beregno has been modernizing the tradition of Murano glass art by working with renowned names and up-and-coming talent in international contemporary visual arts. The results of Berengo's passionate pioneering work are now on display as part of the GlassFever exhibition at four locations in Dordrecht."
