Joana Vasconcelos takes place in the group exhibition Glasstress 2019, curated by Vik Muniz and Joen Vanmechelen, at Fondazione Berengo Art Space, Venice, Italy.
The sixth edition of Glasstress brings together a new lineup of leading contemporary artists from Europe, the United States, Latin America, India, and China in an ambitious exhibition exploring the endless creative possibilities of glass. To celebrate 10 years of Glasstress and 30 years of Berengo Studio, the exhibition goes back to its historical roots on the island of Murano. An old abandoned glass furnace is now an evocative exhibition space for striking new works and installations by returning artists as well as first time participants. In another section, highlights from the past ten years will go on display. A special project by Robert Wilson, curated by Jean Blanchaert, will also feature as part of the exhibition.
