European Glass Context 2021 Exhibitions
2 large curated exhibitions at the Bornholm Art Museum and Grønbechs Gård will showcase the best of European glass. The exhibitions are curated with personal invitations, as well as an open call, where individual artists, artists associations, individual curators, artists, designers and crafts makers working with glass can apply for participation.
Four underlying categories will shape the exhibitions. By setting a contemporary framework for the exhibitions, we want to put together two exhibitions that will largely reflect significant and new works, as well as the innovative, activist, experimental and sustainable trends in European glass.
Site-specific installation projects or works: could be with reference to Bornholm.
UN Sustainability Goals: works based on one or more of the UN's sustainability goals.
Craft: unique master pieces and contemporary objects.
Social or political practices: works or processes originating from social or political practices.
Ca. 60 artists will be represented with major significant works. A curatorial group of 4-6 glass professionals from selected regions in Europe will make the final selection of artists representing all 31 invited European countries.
The new deadline for the Open Call is February 1st 2021.
Applications will be accepted from January 1st - February 1st 2021.
In September 2020 the curator group will select the artists that will be invited to participate, applications are not accepted for this section.

Køppe Contemporary Objects is a gallery and presentation platform for sculptural objects at the intersection of art and crafts. Køppe cooperates closely with a group of artists who share an interest in the inherent possibilities of materials and the historical qualities associated with traditional crafts and techniques. The artists share a passion for exploring the meaning of objects in relation to function and iconography. Another common feature of their work is their focus on combining tradition with interpretation and experimentation to create works that hold contemporary relevance.
Venue address: Køppe Contemporary Objects
