From Venice to Boca Raton: 2021 U.S. debut of Glasstress

Boca Raton Museum of Art

Some of the world’s leading contemporary artists were invited to breathe new life into centuries-old glassmaking in Venice, Italy for the 2021 edition of Glasstrees, which will be on view at the Boca Raton Museum of Art through Sept. 5.

Among the  34 artists working with the maestros of glassblowing at the legendary Berengo Studio were Ai Weiwei, Fred Wilson, Joyce J. Scott, Jimmie Durham, Ugo Rondinone, Fiona Banner, Vik Muniz, Monica Bonvicini, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Laure Prouvost, Renate Bertlmann, Thomas Schütte, Loris Gréaud, and Erwin Wurm.

Most of these works in glass have never been seen elsewhere and were handpicked by Kathleen Goncharov, the museum’s senior curator who traveled to Italy in 2019. More in link.
