International Year of Glass: Through the Looking Glass
Date: 26 – 28 Oct 2022 | Time: 9am – 6pm
Through the Looking Glass is an exhibition featuring 18 glass artists from Singapore presenting almost 60 artworks across a wide range of glassmaking techniques. Organised by the Singapore Glass Association, this exhibition is put together to celebrate the once-in-a-lifetime International Year of Glass 2022 in Singapore, and in the hope of inspiring others through the creative expression of glass, a medium that is typically perceived as purely a functional medium.
This is the second time since 1993 that a glass art exhibition of this scale is organised, showcasing both pioneer artists who have been creating glass artworks for almost 40 years, and aspiring ones who are fresh in their career. Artworks span murals, installations and sculptures created using traditional techniques such as stained glass, blown glass, engraving, to modern techniques such as printing and lamination.
The artworks also tell stories of tension, breakthrough and harmony as part of our human experience, and what sustainable life looks like through the lens of our local artists.
