GAS MURANO 2018. The glass route
After Norfolk, Virginia in 2017, and before St Petersburg in 2019, this year’s venue for the 47th annual edition of the international conference of the Glass Art Society (GAS) is Murano. Over one hundred glass artists from all over the world will meet on the Venetian island to exchange ideas, share insights and engage in workshops on the history and current state of glassmaking. The topic of the conference offers the opportunity to promote an exhibition at the Museo del Vetro di Murano with the works of selected international artists
present in this occasion. The exhibition is curated by Tina Oldknow, former curator of modern and contemporary glass at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York. Il percorso di vetro is intended in a literal and symbolic sense and can be a metaphor for many things: it is an approach,a direction, a means and a path of investigation: a vehicle for discovery. The pioneers of this journey are the artists on show who, from the masters of the mid-twentieth century to new talents,have contributed significantly to the development
of glass as a creative tool.
