Exhibition

GlassFever Contemporary art in glass

For a long time glass art was mainly considered decorative art. That has changed. Glass Fever shows how contemporary independent artists express their ideas in glasss.

 

For 25 years Adriano Berengo has been a passionate promoter of the use of glass in the visual arts. In his glass factory on Murano in Venice, established artists and emerging talents from around the world work together with the maestros of the glass furnaces. Berengo wants to bring contemporary art in glass as an autonomous art form to the highest podium, next to painting and sculpture.

 

Glass Fever shows the results of Berengo's mission in four special locations in Dordrecht: the Dordrechts Museum, DordtYart, Huis Van Gijn and the Dordts Patriciërshuis. There will be over 80 works of glass art and installations by some 60 artists including Tony Cragg, Tracy Emin, Jan Fabre, Kiki Kogelnik, , ORLAN, Mimmo Paladino, Javier Pérez, Jaume Plensa, Shan Shan Sheng, Wael Shawky, Koen Vanmechelen, Joanna Vasconcelos, Fred Wilson and Erwin Wurm.

COLLABORATION BETWEEN THE MAESTRO AND THE ARTIST

"Artists are focused on themselves, on their own ideas. The maestro is just as focused on himself; he is the professional who knows all about glass. Without him, it cannot exist. The artist often only sees the end result before him, but the master knows the steps that lead up to that result. The artist wants to intervene in the working process, but the master wants to do his job and let the process take its course. I have brought together these two strong personalities. This often leads to misunderstandings and sometimes conflicts. When these are overcome, something beautiful is created."

GLASSFEVER IN DORDRECHT

Culinary Venice in Dordrecht

Venice is not only known for Venetian glass but also for its Italian cuisine. The restaurants in Dordrecht’s city centre were inspired to offer something special during Glass Fever. Whether you go on foot or by water to the various exhibition locations, the route will take you past a variety of restaurants, wine bars, pizzerias, ice cream shops and tearooms which are participating in Glass Fever. You can try everything from a Glass Fever burger to ice cream and even Venetian coffee from Goppion. Try the world-famous Aperol or a lunch inspired by the AWAKENER/LIFEBANK installation at DordtYart. The participating restaurants and their special offers can be found here.

 

MORE TO EXPERIENCE

During Glass Fever numerous activities have been organized. There are lectures by participating artists, guided tours and workshops in four locations. In the summer you can enjoy Italian films in the garden of the Dordrechts Museum. Would you like to learn the art of glass blowing? You can take a course at DordtYart.
