Nominees for the Coburg Prize for Contemporary Glass 2022
Around 400 artists from all over the world send their application to take part in The Coburg Prize for Contemporary Glass 2022. In total, the seven-member jury examined over 700 objects for the accompanying exhibition and, in a multi-stage process, selected around 100 works by 89 artists. These will be exhibited from April 10th to September 25th 2022 at the Veste Coburg and in the European Museum for Modern Glass in Rödental. The winners will be announced on April 9th 2022.
The Coburg Prize for Contemporary Glass 2022 will present a Europe-wide overview of current trends and developments in contemporary glass art. The range of techniques used and the artistic design is wide, as is the variety of artistic statements. Many works are dedicated to socially relevant issues or address sustainability and climate change.
The competition is organised in cooperation with the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung, Munich, and is funded by Oberfrankenstiftung, the City of Coburg, SÜC Coburg, Denk Keramische Werkstätten and the Barbara Achilles-Stiftung.
