The exhibits were chosen through a competition involving over 200 young glass artists (aged 18 – 40) from 22 European countries. An international competition jury consisting of museum directors, curators and glass experts from Italy, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, Spain and Finland selected 40 works representing glass art in seventeen countries.

The jury also selected 38 drawing, all of which will be on display at the Finnish Glass Museum. A further selection of ten works will be made from these drawings, to be realized in glass by the master glassmakers of Murano in the autumn of 2014. These pieces will be on display at the exhibition in Venice in the spring of 2015. In connection with the exhibition at the Finnish Glass Museum a workshop will be held at the Lasismi glass studio on 28 –29 March 2014. At this event, three young artists from France, Denmark and the Czech Republic have been invited to work together with Finnish glass artists. The public can follow the making of the pieces and the work of the artists. There will also be an opportunity for discussions with the young artists.
