Glass art exhibition Shaping will be opened by the Romanian Cultural Institute in Budapest at their headquarters at Izsó utca 5 on Tuesday, 13 September 2022 at 6:00 p.m. The opening speech will be delivered by MOME General Vice Rector Pál Koós. 

The exhibition is the result of a collaboration between the Art and Design University of Cluj-Napoca (UAD), the Bucharest National University of Arts (UNARTE) and Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME) and is curated by Alexandra Mureșan (UAD), Ioana Stelea (UNARTE), BarbaraSzőke (MOME) and curator assistant Iulia Iacob (UAD). 

The exhibition is part of an art project by the RKI in Budapest designed to promote the collaboration between Hungarian and Romanian visual artists and higher education institutions. The first step in this effort was the textile art exhibition Master and pupil in 2021. This year has been declared International Year of Glass by the UN, giving an impetus to reinforcing relationships within the art world in this area and bringing glass as an artistic material and source of inspiration into focus. Properties like transparency/translucency, fragility, malleability and recyclability can combine to convey a vision for a more sincere, more nurturing, deliberate, responsible and sustainable world. The exhibition is intended as a celebration of glass art and the associated creativity and technical prowess, as well as the relationship between cultures and communities, and presents the works of acclaimed artists/teachers and students in a consistent and coherent context. 

The Shaping exhibition will conclude on Saturday, 8 October 2022 at 5:00 p.m. with glass artist LucaDimény’s interactive workshop, presenting the entire process of making glass beads  and demonstrating flameworking. 

After the exhibition, the displayed items will be moved to the UNA Gallery in Bucharest and the UAD Gallery in Cluj-Napoca with support from and the involvement of the Liszt Ferenc Institute in Bucharest.
