The National College of Art and Design (NCAD) announces the Ireland Glass Biennale 2019; a juried exhibition of work from some of the world’s most innovative glass artists, designers and craft practitioners. Through showcasing the excellence of contemporary glass practice, the Irish Glass Biennale(IGB) aspires to further the public’s understanding of the creative potential of glass and to act as a catalyst for cultural activities which centre around glass.
The IGB was curated through an open-call process and direct invitation. The final selection was made by a panel of three expert jurors:
– Reino Liefkes, Senior Curator and Head of Ceramics and Glass, Victoria & Albert Museum, London, England
– Diane C. Wright, Curator of Glass and Decorative Arts at the Toledo Museum of Art, Ohio, United States
– Paula Stokes, Artist and Co-Founder of the METHOD gallery, Seattle, United States
The Ireland Glass Biennale 2019, will be hosted by the Office of Public works in the Coach House Gallery, Dublin Castle Gardens. The exhibition will be open 10am – 5pm daily from 24 October 2019 until 7 January 2020. Admission to the exhibition will be free.
IGB is co-funded by the NCAD and Creative Europe as part of a Creative Europe project: Imagining Sustainable Glass Network Europe (ISGNE). This EU funded project includes four partners in the UK, Germany, Latvia and Ireland, and engages with 33 associated organisations in nineteen European countries. This ambitious four year project, culminating in 2021, has initiated a dynamic schedule of cultural events, workshops, exhibitions and publications revolving around glass and its endless possibilities within the context of intangible cultures, design, visual and applied arts.
