Verre en scène

Permanent exhibition

mudac - musée de design et d’arts appliqués contemporains

mudac’s contemporary glass art collection includes over 600 pieces.

Nevertheless, the exhibition area on the museum’s top floor only allows for a tiny fraction of them to be displayed. That is why, every two months, Verre en scène presents a new art piece taken from the museum’s storage. This selection aims to be varied, dynamic and original – a novel display concept that also stems from a desire to showcase the porous boundaries between the fields of glass art, design and contemporary art. Thus, the works of international glass artists and designers and the use of various techniques and diverse creative contexts give this unique collection greater exposure. The display in darkness with focused lighting offers an opportunity for the viewer to approach these contemporary glass creations in a unique way.
