The Coburg Prize for Contemporary Glass 2014

From April 13 – September 14, 2014


The Kunstsammlungen of the Veste Coburg are organizing in 2014 for the fourth time after 1977, 1985 and 2006 the Coburg prize for Contemporary Glass – a European competition for modern glass. Three main prizes and a number of special prizes will be awarded by the international panel of judges, the first prize being € 15,000, the second prize € 10,000 and the third prize € 5,000. There will also be a Public Prize.
The exhibition will be held in the historic galleries of the Veste Coburg and at the European Museum of Modern Glass in Rödental.
The funding of the budget will be supported by public foundations, municipal corporations and private sponsors.

Objectives
In recent years, many new aspects have come to enrich the artists’ way of viewing glass as an art medium. Besides painstakingly designed objects, realised with the utmost precision, works with a more conceptual approach are becoming increasingly important. With mobility taken for granted, national borders and specifics are disappearing. Europe has become the home for many artists from the US and Asia. New solutions for turning creative ideas into reality are opening up, made possible by new production and processing techniques, the universal use of adhesives, and the utilisation of illuminating gases and LED technology. More and more painters, sculptors and concept artists are discovering glass as a material for their own work. Light and transparency, for which glass is ideally suitable, are more topical than ever. The Coburg Glass Prize 2014 aims to show current trends and orientations in modern art which use glass as their material in a comprehensive European exhibition.

Exhibition
The selected objects will be presented from April 13 – September 14, 2014, in the galleries of the Veste Coburg and the European Museum of Modern Glass in Rödental. The official awards ceremony will be held on April 12, 2014, in Coburg. A catalogue will be published to accompany the exhibition.

Judging panel
In the first round, all the applicants and submitted objects will be assessed from digital images by an international panel of judges to select art works for the exhibition. In the second round, the same panel of judges will announce the prize winners among the works which by then will have been delivered. The judging panel includes Sven Hauschke, Kunstsammlungen der Veste Coburg, Milan Hlaveš, Museum of Decorative Arts, Prague, Susanne Jøker-Johnsen, Copenhagen; Peter Layton, London, Jutta-Annette Page, Toledo Museum of Art, Toledo/Ohio, Anne Vanlatum, Musée-Atelier du Verre, Sars-Poteries and non-voting member Klaus Weschenfelder, Kunstsammlungen der Veste Coburg.

Terms and conditions of participation
The Coburg Prize for Contemporary Glass is open to artists born in Europe or living in Europe who work with glass. Submissions may be made by professional artists in the form of vessels, sculptures, objects, installations or stained glass. All the art works must have been made in 2012 or 2013.
