The Glass of the Architects. Vienna 1900–1937

At the MAK Vienna18 January – 16 April 2017

A cooperation between the MAK and LE STANZE DEL VETRO

The exhibition “The Glass of the Architects. Vienna 1900–1937″ focuses on a fascinating chapter of Austrian handicraft: designs by young architects exercised an epochal influence on the development of art glass in Viennese Modernism. After its successful showing at LE STANZE DEL VETRO in Venice in 2016, this impressive exhibition will be presented in the MAK at the beginning of 2017. The exhibition with its 300 pieces of glassware—curated by Rainald Franz (Curator, MAK Glass and Ceramics Collection) and realized in cooperation with LE STANZE DEL VETRO—offers for the first time a comprehensive overview of the period from the final decades of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy up until the end of the First Republic.
