"When art and design take on glass" exhibition at La Cité du Vin

Exhibitions - Unavoidable

  • From 15/03/2019 to 30/06/2019


Astonishing, poetical, sometimes even surprising... The glass as we rarely see it, elevated, modified and reinvented by designers and artists.

After Bistro! From Baudelaire to Picasso (2017) and Wine and Music, harmony and dissonance (2018), La Cité du Vin presents Mind-blowing! When art and design take on glass from 15 March to 30 June 2019. In a refined setting, the exhibits are sometimes functional, but more often symbolic or repurposed. Creations from Nicolas Boulard, Achille Castiglioni, Hubert Le Gall, Arik Levy, Jean-Michel Othoniel, Gaetano Pesce, or Philippe Starck rub shoulders with original works from matali crasset and the film-maker Jérôme de Gerlache, created especially for the exhibition. Mind-blowing! has been created by the Foundation for wine culture and civilisations and guest curator Bettina Tschumi.
