2 – 30 Jun 2011
The Glass Department at the VŠUP (College of Applied Arts), headed by Academic Sculptor Rony Plesl, will present their latest output at an exhibition tailored to the premises of the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art. The exhibition will comprise design series made in collaboration with leading Czech glass producers and will be accompanied by a catalogue, a kind of the department’s manifesto.
“Transparency Nation“ – transparent, simple, straightforward, pure, uncorrupted, pervasive, translucent, permeating, visible, well-arranged… These synonyms illustrate the exhibition concept; at the same time, they also paraphrase the direction which the Glass Department of the VŠUP has chosen. The department has embarked on the path of creative design, with ventures into conceptual art from whence one can move to any art discipline."
