关于我们 ABOUT MUSEUM

跨越藩篱|与全球玻璃艺术对话


在前工业向后工业时代的转型中,上海作为中国玻璃工业最为发达的地区之一,率先完成了对工业旧址的改造,并在位于某某区某某路123号玻璃仪器一厂的原址上,建成了工业设计色彩浓厚的玻璃博物馆。这一举动,意味着文化艺术将在工业的土壤上复兴、再生。


自2011年建成开馆以来,玻璃博物馆在几年间不断为公众奉献着精彩纷呈的展览,从一年一度的中国古玻璃特展,到吸收全球顶尖玻璃设计品的Keep It Glassy特展,来自美国、英国、意大利、德国、荷兰、土耳其、澳大利亚、墨西哥、肯尼亚、日本、韩国等共23国的艺术家与设计师参与博物馆各类展览项目和公众活动。玻璃设计与艺术正跨越空间和语言文化的藩篱,将各式跨型态的玻璃设计与艺术藏品共享于众。


Since opening its doors in 2011, the  Museum of Glass has presented a variety of top international exhibitions and events, including yearly ancient glass exhibitions and ‘Keep It Glassy’, an exhibition that engages artists and designers from countries such as the USA, UK, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Turkey, Australia, Mexico, Kenya, Japan and South Korea. These high-end glass designs and glass art pieces transform geographical hurdles and break down cultural barriers to bring cutting-edge ideas and work to the public.

During  transformation into the post-industrial era – the city which has a long developed glass manufacturing business took the lead in remodelling these old industrial buildings. The Glassware Factory was turned into the  Museum of Glass, with many of its original remnants still visible. The revival demonstrates how art and culture can be fostered from old, and often forgotten industrial landscapes.
