🎬 3… 2… 1… Action! Fondazione Berengo and Berengo Studio open Glasstress 8½ in Murano! The eighth edition of the internationally acclaimed exhibition of contemporary art in glass returns to Murano where it all began, with a series of exciting new artworks debuting in the Fondazione Berengo Art Space.

Coinciding with the 60th International Art Exhibition in Venice, Glasstress returns to its original location, an old furnace on the island of Murano which was transformed into an exhibition space in 2009, together with a special project at the Tesa 99 in the Arsenale Nord. The title of the exhibition is a homage to Fellini, and his masterpiece of the same name, a film which hinges on the theme of artistic creation. Yet it is also a means of emphasising that this is the eighth edition of Glasstress at the Fondazione Berengo Art Space in Murano, which will be a special “expanded” edition, with the 1/2 indicating two never before seen installations that will be exhibited in the Tesa 99 in the Arsenale Nord by the Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen and the Austrian artist Sabine Wiedenhofer.
