Danish and international glass art has been developing prolifically in recent years, as can be experienced in numerous exhibitions around the world. Danish glass artists have in recent years gained firm foothold on the international glass scene and Hempel Glassmuseum would like to respond by inviting international artists to exhibit in the museum.
In the summer of 2012 the biennale for contemporary glass and ceramics 'European Glass Context 2012' was successfully organized on the island of Bornholm. Two large-scale exhibitions showed the best of contemporary European glass. With assistance of the biennale curator, glass artist Susanne Jøker Johnsen, Hempel Glassmuseum has put together an exhibition with seven of the participating artists, whose work reflects nature as inspiration. The selected works show a full range of techniques and styles made by seven acclaimed artists from Slovenia, Denmark, Norway, Estonia, Ireland and Iceland.
