Venice and American Studio Glass

Curated by Tina Oldknow and William Warmus23 March – 26 July 2020

The spring exhibition at LE STANZE DEL VETRO will be dedicated to the Studio Glass, with an extraordinary diversity of contemporary American art and design in glass.

The next spring exhibition at LE STANZE DEL VETRO, ‘Venice and American Studio Glass’, will be open from 23 March to 26 July 2020. 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.   

‘Venice and American Studio Glass’ will demonstrate the powerful, enduring and versatile legacy of Venetian glassmaking in America by exploring the impact of Venice on contemporary American art in glass.
