With the exhibition Glass – A New Experience the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung, still a young foundation, inaugurates its new exhibition rooms located in a former studio of an Art Nouveau villa in München-Schwabing. It presents itself for the first time to the public as a collector of glass sculptures. About 30 of them will be shown, purchased within the last two years to set up the foundation’s collection of contemporary glass. The exhibition will be supplemented by loans from the private collection of Alexander Tutsek and his wife Dr. Eva-Maria Fahrner-Tutsek.
INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS WITH A FOCUS ON CZECH WORKS
The selection will give an overall view of the Studio Glass movement, which is still quite unknown in Germany. The exhibits have been made by artists from Western and Eastern Europe, the USA, Australia and Japan. Dale Chihuly (USA), Erwin Eisch (Germany), Stanislav Libensky & Jaroslava Brychtová (Tschechien) are among these artists. They are already considered classics in glass art. The first exhibition comprises two parts. The first part will mainly focus on Czech artists. The second part, which will be exhibited in 2005, will concentrate on works of American and Australian artists.
