Venice Biennale 2023

House of Glass: The Exhibition

On home ground in Venice, in a unique ‘three act’ format – ‘inspire’ (The Exhibition), ‘create’ (The Workshop), ‘share’ (The Symposium) – starting alongside the 18th Biennale Architettura and culminating with Venice Glass Week 2023, WonderGlass explores the historic grounding and contemporary opportunities for Venetian glassmaking, within the context of the region’s broader art ecology.

Devised in close collaboration with curatorial consultant Jean Blanchaert and curator Gian Camillo Custoza, HOUSE OF GLASS: IN THREE ACTS is proudly presented by WonderGlass from 18 May through 13 September 2023.

Presented at intimate scale in one of Venice’s most-renowned private palazzi, the seventeenth-century Palazzo Donà dalle Rose, THE EXHIBITION features a mix of recent and newly-commissioned works by artists, designers and architects, all selected to communicate the reflexive sensibility of glassmaking within the context of Venice – yesterday, today and tomorrow.


PUBLIC DATES: 18th May 2023 – 22th May 2023

LOCATION: Palazzo Donà dalle Rose, 5038 Fondamente Nove, 30121 Venezia
