The Coburg Prize for Contemporary Glass in April 2014
Co-organizer

The Coburg Glass Prize 2014 aims to show current trends and orientations
in modern art which use glass as their material in a comprehensive European exhibition.This important event is widely promoted by the Alexander Tutsek Foundation as co-organizer. Selected by an international jury the objects will be presented from April 13 – September 14, 2014, in the galleries of the Veste Coburg and the European Museum of Modern Glass in Rödental. The official awards ceremony will be held on April 12, 2014, in Coburg. A catalogue will be published to accompany the exhibition.

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. New solutions for turning creative ideas into 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.
