CGS Conference

The in­te­ri­ors of our public and pri­vate spaces are im­por­tant to us; we shape them to af­fect our mood, our mes­sage and our iden­ti­ty. From thought pro­vok­ing in­s­tal­la­tion through the use of state­ment ar­chi­tec­tu­ral fea­tures in a build­ing, to the choos­ing of a favou­rite wine­glass for the din­n­er table, glass plays a rich and varied part in the way that we con­struct our in­side spaces – both public and pri­vate. The Con­tem­po­rary Glass So­ci­e­ty pre­sents a con­fer­ence that ex­plores the use of glass in in­te­ri­ors. It will look at an in­spir­ing range of prac­tice within con­tem­po­rary glass in­clud­ing fine art, de­sign, ar­chi­tec­tu­ral glass, in­no­va­tive us­es of new tech­nolo­gies and at the ways that glass can be used to af­fect mood through in­s­tal­la­tion and per­for­mance.

Set in the stun­n­ing art de­co De La Warr Pav­ilion at Bex­hill on Sea and in easy trav­elling dis­tance from Lon­don, par­ti­ci­pants will be able to ex­plore cutt­ing edge con­tem­po­rary glass, to re­flect on their own cre­a­tive prac­tice, and to take time to en­joy a beau­ti­ful sea­side arts venue.
