    06/04/2014 – 28/09/2014

    From 6 April till 28 September 2014, the glass museum GlazenHuis in Lommel presents an exhibition on contemporary artistic glass from the United Kingdom.

    The GlazenHuis organizes two to three exhibitions a year. Almost every year we develop a show focusing on one or more countries, searching for its specific identity in the field of glass and art. In this series we have compiled Katamari Glass of Sandbox (Japanese glass, 2008), Tenuous Tenacity (Canadian glass, 2009), Czech Glass, between tradition and innovation (2010) and the Glass Match: Belgium - The Netherlands (2011).

    The exhibition on UK Glass will be the 18th exhibition since the opening of the GlazenHuis in May 2007.

    For this show we have recruited 23 established and upcoming artists whose represented works are examples of excellent traditional craftsmanship or fascinating applications of new technologies, but as well artworks of exquisite, artistic and conceptual quality.

    This selection contains small and medium-sized objects, wall works, paintings, photography, video, projections and a monumental site specific installation in the tower of the museum, created by Michael Petry together with our studio team.

    Participating artists: Sarah Blood, Katharine Coleman, Erin Dickson, Katharine Dowson, Fiaz Elson, Jerome Harrington, Shelley James, Peter Layton, Julia Malle, James Maskrey, Helen Maurer, Graham Muir, Keïko Mukaïdé, Michael Petry, Liam Reeves, Michael Ruh, Jeffrey Sarmiento, Louis Thompson, Andrea Walsh, Richard Wheater, Kathryn Wightman, Emma Woffenden, Jeff Zimmer

12/10/2014 – 15/04/2015

Throughout history, concepts of body and sex have had a significant impact. From ancient idealization of the harmonious, athletic body to the 1960s "liberated" body and gender perceptions to the more recent depreciation of the "natural" body in favour of the "modified" eternally young body.

In the wake of the development of the concept of the body, and that many have come to realize that society not only shapes personality and behaviour, it also shapes the way in which the body appears, there have also been changes to the perception of gender.

 Today, traditional gender perceptions and stereotypes, including the concept of "the ideal family unit" are in transition and there is a lively debate about equal rights, women in top positions and men in more domestic roles.

But what happens to our perception of body, sex and gender when the concepts are illustrated and reinterpreted by a group of 25 international artists from 16 different countries and cultures. © glasmuseet Ebeltoft
