Discover a New Face of Contemporary Art Using Glass as a Medium
This event, initiated by ESGAA (European Studio Glass Art Association), presents the works of artists using glass as the main medium.
STRASBOURG.- For its third edition, "Strasbourg, Glass Capital" becomes the "International Glass Biennial". With more than 50 000 visitors in 2007, this event has become an unavoidable rendezvous for amateurs of glass.

While the use of the medium glass by the artists is booming, the International Glass Biennial 2009, which presents 14 exhibitions in and around the city of Strasbourg, turns determinedly to contemporary art with artists such as Yves Chaudouet, Rachel Maisonneuve or Jean-Pierre Umbdenstock.

This event, initiated by ESGAA (European Studio Glass Art Association), presents the works of artists using glass as the main medium or sometimes associated with stone, metal has or other materials.

The second big novelty of 2009 resides in the first edition of the International Strasbourg Glass Prize. This prize aims at rewarding artists working the glass themselves. It has attracted more than 90 participants from Europe, Africa, America or Asia. The work of the prize-winner, Nicolas Morin, was rewarded among 130 works received. His prize will be attributed on October 7th and he will be exhibited during the International Glass Biennale 2009.
