Tour De Force: In Case Of Emergency Break Glass
National Art Glass Gallery: 21 January - 13 March 2011
Tour De Force on display at the National Art Glass Gallery, 2011
Tour De Force: In Case Of Emergency Break Glass is a groundbreaking exhibition that highlights the work of eight progressive Australian artists who have made work that breaches the traditional ideas, methods and materials of glass making. The exhibition brings new focus to the medium of glass, particularly the conceptual branch of the practice. Masterfully crafted and exquisitely realised, this provocative exhibition is a celebration of genuine artistic integrity - and as such is set to both challenge and inspire a new generation of studio glass artists. Curated by renowned glass rebel Megan Bottari, Tour De Force is not for the faint of heart.
