Parallel event to the 54rd Biennale International Art Exhibition Venice
4 june 2011 - 27 november 2011

Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti, 
Palazzo Franchetti 
and Berengo Centre for Contemporary Art and Glass - Wake Forest University, Casa Artom

Curated by 
Bonnie Clearwater, Lidewij Edelkoort, Peter Noever and Demetrio Paparoni
Conceived by 
Adriano Berengo and produced by Venice  Projects

The exhibition represented  the second edition of Glasstress, the contemporary art exhibition in which irnportant stars on the international scene match their talents with the use of glass. The exhibition has included sculptures, installations and design objects.
The theme was the complex relationship that ties art, design and architecture together in an age thought to have moved beyond modernism.
Comparing the opinions of various curators, Glasstress addresses this issue through glass sculptures specially made by major artists on thc contemporary scene and through objects and sculptures made by designers, whose research was influenced by the  formal aspect of the use of the object.
