Toyama Glass Art Museum (JP), International Call for Artists: 2018 Toyama International Glass Exhibition
Deadline: March 20th, 2018
Toyama City (Japan) is proud to announce the Toyama International Glass Exhibition 2018, a triennial international open-submission glass art exhibition. It is aimed at attracting the latest creations of contemporary glass art from all over the world and assessing their artistry. The submission is open to both national and international artists. The Toyama International Glass Exhibition 2018 will be held at the Toyama Glass Art Museum, which opened in 2015.
Within the field of contemporary glass art, a new movement, which viewed glass as a material with unique expressive potential, began in the Czech in the 1950s and in the United States in the 1960s. While this movement has matured over half a century, the expressive potential of glass continues to be unlimited and endures today.
Works selected for the Toyama International Glass Exhibition 2018 will demonstrate compelling ideas and unique material handlings. They will provide powerful and creative inspirations to young artists, and will showcase the continual advancement of contemporary glass art.
Eligibility: Open to all nationalities, ages, and professional levels
