In recent years, many new aspects have come to enrich artists' way of viewing glass as an art medium. Besides painstakingly designed objects, realised with the utmost precision, works with a more conceptual approach are becoming increasingly important.
With mobility taken for granted, national borders and specifics are disappearing. Europe has become the home for many artists from the US and Asia. New solutions for turning creative ideas in to reality are opening up, made possible by new production and processing techniques, the universal use of adhesives, and the utilisation of illuminating gases and LED technology. More and more painters, sculptors and concept artists are discovering glass as a material for their own work.
The exhibition of the Coburg Glass Prize, which is presented for the fourth time since 1977, aims to show current trends and orientations in modern art which use glass as their material in a comprehensive exhibition. To be seen are objects from European or in Europe living artists.
The objects will be selected by an international panel of judges and be presented from April 13th till September 14th 2014 in the galleries of the Veste Coburg and the European Museum of Modern Glass in Rödental.
The photo judging round will take place on September 13 to 15 in Coburg. This decides which of the submitted works will be entered in the exhibition and competition. Following the photo round, the selected artists will be notified within a period of two weeks.
246 artists from 36 countries have applied for the competition.
