MUDAC - musée de design et d'arts appliqués contemporains

Têtes à têtes: Human Figures


This thematic exhibition deals with figuration in art glass and pays homage to the origins of the collection with a broad selection of blown glass pieces from the Venetian studio La Fucina degli Angeli and glass-paste items produced by Daum.

Around sixty pieces attest to the interest taken by glass artists in the human figure. The creators decline heads, bodies and fragments and play with styles, sometimes going as far as the most allusive abstraction. Parallel to this, a bestiary is presented in the room at the top of the mudac’s tower.
