Lino Tagliapietra. Glasswork

Ph. Russel Johnson

Inaugural project of the new “InGalleria” exhibition space at Punta Conterie is “Lino Tagliapietra. Glasswork” from 8 September to 31 December 2019. The Maestro’s first solo exhibition in his homeland. Installations and previously unseen works will see the return of the extraordinary artistic vision and creative capacity of the most important glass artist known throughout the world. Blown glass shapes by the Maestro will draw, in a chromatic crescendo, a sinuous path through the magic of glass and the extraordinary spaces of the new Murano hub.

Considered one of the greatest interpreters of glass art in the world, Lino Tagliapietra will exhibit in Murano for the first time a selection of works – partly from his historic archive, partly made expressly for this exhibition – in a journey that has been planned to retrace some of the Maestro’s artistic history.

Curated by Alessandro Vecchiato as the inaugural project of the new exhibition space InGalleria at Punta Conterie, Lino Tagliapietra. Glasswork promises to be a unique exhibition of its kind in which the blown glass shapes from the Maestro explode as true works of art, in a chromatic kaleidoscope that seem to defy the force of gravity. Experience, technique, investigation, experimentation, all become the ABC of Lino Tagliapietra’s creative vocabulary, a tribute to the history of Murano and at the same time evidence of the expressive freedom gained in over forty years of work.
