Venice and American Studio Glass, will be open from 5 September 2020 to 10 January 2021, at Le Stanze del Vetro. This exhibition is curated by Tina Oldknow and William Warmus, former curators of modern and contemporary glass at The Corning Museum of Glass in New York.
Gathering together 155 outstanding glass vessels, sculptures and installations created by 60 American and Venetian artists, this exhibition will be the first to closely examine the influences of traditional Venetian glass-working techniques, as well as the Venetian aesthetic, on American Studio Glass made from the 1960s to the present.
Two artists represented by the Caterina Tognon gallery will be involved in the exhibition, as pioneers of the American Studio Glass: Richard Marquis and Toots Zynsky
