The National College of Art and Design (NCAD) in association with the Office of Public Works announces the Ireland Glass Biennale 2023; an exhibition of work from some of the world’s most innovative glass artists, designers and craft practitioners. The Ireland Glass Biennale (IGB) exhibition will be on show in the Coach House Gallery, Dublin Castle from 28 April to 20 August 2023. Through showcasing the excellence of contemporary glass practice, the Irish Glass Biennale (IGB) aspires to further the public’s understanding of the creative potential of glass and to act as a catalyst for cultural activities which centre around glass.
Glass practitioners from Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia are among those selected by the international panel of jurors, each bringing expertise in their respective fields of glass curation, practice and education. Jurors included Kim Mawhinney, Senior Curator of Art at National Museums Northern Ireland; Katya Heller, Director at the renowned Heller Gallery in New York; Zhang Lin, Founder, Director and President of the Shanghai Museum of Glass and Karen Donnellan, artist, and educator. The exhibition is curated by Dr Caroline Madden of the National College of Art and Design, Dublin.
This exhibition is co-funded by the NCAD and Creative Europe as part of a Creative Europe project: Imagining Sustainable Glass Network Europe (ISGNE). This EU funded project includes four partners in the UK, Germany, Latvia and Ireland, and engages with thirty-three associated organisations in nineteen European countries. This ambitious five-year project has initiated a dynamic schedule of cultural events, workshops, exhibitions and publications revolving around glass and its endless possibilities within the context of intangible cultures, visual and applied arts and design.
