Stanislav Libenský Awards 2016
During September-November 2016 my work was shortlisted for the annual Libensky Awards at the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art, Prague.
The Stanislav Libenský Award (founded in 2009) is an international competitive glassmaking exhibition that every autumn in Prague presents the best work of graduates of art colleges who used glass in their degree projects. Visitors can thus see how the phenomenon of artistic glassmaking is developing on an international level through the arrival of a new generation of glassmakers. This exhibition is the only one of its kind in the world.
For young glassmakers, the annual award provides career development opportunities, while for the public it is an opportunity to see both fresh and traditional approaches to glassmaking. It is of course also a tribute to an artist and teacher who is rightly considered the greatest Czech glass artist.
