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 applied for participation.
A curator group of 7 glass professionals made the final selection of 62 artists representing 31 European countries. Deadline is now closed and we do not accept applications.
Four underlying categories will shape the exhibitions. By setting a contemporary framework, 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.
Glass on the Edge of Craft - Challenging the Material

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.
