Friday, September 26th, 3 pm.
Visit to double exhibition: “Le stanze del vetro – Mondrian Glass Tea House” and “Tomaso Buzzi at Venini” – Island of San Giorgio Maggiore
The Meeting Point is at 2.40 pm at S. Giorgio boat stop.
LE STANZE DEL VETRO is a long term initiative devoted to the study of the art of glassmaking in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The project marks the opening of a new permanent exhibition space in San Giorgio Island designed to host a series of shows featuring international artists, both contemporary and historical, who have used glass during their careers as a mean of expression and medium for researching their own personal aesthetics.
The “Glass Tea House Mondrian”, by the artist Hiroshi Sugimoto, is an exhibition organized by Le stanze del vetro and inspired by pre-modern abstraction.
The exhibition “Tomaso Buzzi at Venini” reconstructs, through a selection of glass objects and original drawings, the collaboration between the leading exponent of the so-called Novecento Milanese Tomaso Buzzi and the Venini glassworks.
Free admission to both exhibitions. Please confirm your participation no later than Wednesday 24, 12 am.
