Tout chaud / Red-Hot

Red-Hot gathers the works of seven young contemporary artists who work in glass. Dominique Beaupré St-Pierre, Vincent Chagnon, Melanie Lambert, Marie-Pierre Daigle and William Ruppel cultivate a close link with nature, its components, its vitality and its textures; David Goranitis revisits the long tradition of glassmaking in his native Czech Republic; and Sébastien Duchange brings out the extraordinary in everyday objects – presenting us with a playful point of view.

This is not our first encounter with this medium. In the winter of 2007, we invited Master-glassmaker John Paul Robinson to curate an exhibition of contemporary glass that would challenge popular prejudices towards glass art.  This collaboration generated several other presentations of glass and since 2008, we have been hosting Espace Verre’s annual graduate exhibition. Thus, when we were invited to participate in the Montreal City of Glass: A Tale of Innovation event, organised by the Board of Montreal Museum Directors, we were very enthusiastic to introduce a series of four exhibitions dedicated to glass to our 2010 exhibition schedule.
Come discover some original new work from artists working in the creative medium of glass. Come and see them while they are Red-Hot!
