Call for applications

Glass is a complex, multi-faceted material: used in everyday life and by craftsmen, it is also present in contemporary sculptures and installations, and is increasingly appreciated by visual artists, who are fascinated by the many forms that glass can take.

Glass also fascinates because it is mysterious and bewitching: who hasn’t been lulled by the flaming red of molten glass, whether at the end of a cane or in the flame of a blowtorch? Who hasn’t wanted to understand this very special medium? Glass isn’t just a material, it’s a partner you have to work with, because it has a tendency to go it alone and a reputation for being difficult to tame.

To understand glass, you have to live it. And it is this experience of “living together” with the material that the Musée du Verre has been trying to explain to its public for almost 50 years. In 2017, the teams want to give a voice to glass artists and craftsmen. The idea of a Biennial was born, and the first edition was successfully held in May 2019. We wanted to perpetuate this success by launching the organization of the second edition. For its third edition, we wanted to give new impetus to this project. In addition to the glass weekend at the Glass Museum, now renamed Glass Days, there will also be a month-long exhibition at the Charleroi Fine Arts Museum.

There is a call for application for both events. Artists are welcome to apply for both the Glass Days and the exhibition at the Fine Arts Museum.

If you would like to take part in this event, please return your application by October, 1st, 2023.
