it’s a book
April 22, 2015
Lower East designed the book for the exhibition “DG15 – 40 Years of Contemporary Glass in Denmark”. The museum wanted the book to mirror the exhibition idea – to both tell the story about Danish glass during the last 40 years and to show the direction of Danish glass today through a varied combination of text, historical photos and artworks from all the artists represented in the exhibition combined in new ways. The result is a beautiful, modern book, with soft cover and printet on a delikate matte paper.
A little more info on the exhibition from the museum website: “The exhibition is composed of two parallel shows – a curated show illustrating the historical development of Danish glass and a censored show, which will take stock of the Danish glass scene anno 2015. This exhibition is a follow-up to the two previous exhibitions presented in 1994 and 2004, showing the status of Danish glass at that point of time.” More information on www.glasmuseet.dk.
