THE VENICE GLASS WEEK is an international festival dedicated to the art of glass, with a particular focus on that of Murano. The festival involves many of the major institutions in Venice, Murano and Mestre, with the aim of revitalizing and sustaining one of the city’s most important artistic and creative activities. The festival is promoted by the Town Council of Venice, and conceived and organized by Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia, LE STANZE DEL VETRO – Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti and Consorzio Promovetro Murano.
Sini Majuri’s glass installation Iceberg will be exhibited in the Venice Glass Week HUB. The opening of the exhibition will take place on September 6th on 6.30 PM in Palazzo Franchetti. The main philosophy behind the pieces is to reflect the climate change.
Sini Majuri also has a solo exhibition in Hotel Saturnia & International. The opening of the 3D graal, Dreams drowned inside glass exhibition will be on September 7th at 6.30 PM in Hotel Saturnia, Calle Larga XXII Marzo, 2398, 30124 Venezia. Exhibition mixes together 100 years old Swedish Graal technique and modern 3D printing. It is a surreal narrative captured inside thick glass, which has details hidden in, that can only be seen from an exact angle.
