Exhibition UN-GLASS opened in SHMOG
December 19, 2019
On December 7, 2019, conceptual exhibition UN-GLASS was unveiled on Level 2, Design Wing. The exhibition is curated and designed by Tilman Thürmer, Design Director of Shanghai Museum of Glass.
Followed by the exhibition BRKN, Keep It Glassy 3 that probes the “broken” of glass, Keep It Glassy 4 “UN-GLASS” aims to present an exhibition that erases the existence of glass. Fourteen sets of exhibits both spectacle and interactive, invite the audience to immerse in a world “without glass”.
As Thürmer states in the preface, “The impact and meanings that glass brought to humans have stretched far beyond its materiality. Glass changes the way we see the world and ourselves. This unique vision that goes both inwards and outwards has motivated us to reflect on ourselves as well as inspired us to explore the uncharted territories.”
Since its establishment in 2011, Shanghai Museum of Glass has constantly dedicated for presenting the infinite possibilities of glass. This mind-open conceptual exhibition provides an opportunity to rediscover the ubiquity of glass in modern society. The exhibition will open until March 29, 2020.
