The 2018 edition of the International Glass Art Biennial is the largest glass exhibition in Belgium to date and welcomes 36 artists from 16 countries.
This event offers both emerging and established glass artists the opportunity to showcase their work to a wider audience, galleries, collectors,....
Since its inception seven years ago, the event has supported a cornucopia of practitioners who have progressed their careers and furthered their involvement within
the glass art world. Hosted by the Belgian Art Fondation "Kunststichting Perspektief vzw", the glass biennial is a celebration of excellence in art from across the world,
a platform for innovation and originality.
Over 283 applications (over 1300 works) were submitted this year, and the judging process was rigorous – decisions were based on skill, originality and technical ability.
Curating the exhibition of artists was hugely rewarding; during the process, there was a constant reminder of how the contemporary artist is affecting daily glass life.”
Entry 6 €. (accessible to disabled persons)
