Conférence annuelle GLASS

Dear ICOM GLASS Members,


The 2017 ICOM GLASS Annual Meeting will take place in Northern France (Sars-Poteries) and Belgium, from 16 to 20 October 2017.


The recently opened MusVerre in Sars-Poteries is one of the most exciting new glass museum developments in many years. The MusVerre has been exploring different ways to engage with their visitors and operates a very successful artist-in-residency programme. We will also have the opportunity to see Het Glazen Huis museum in Lommel, which opened in 2007. It will be inspiring to see and discuss these recent museum developments with their different approaches.

For this reason, the programme will have a strong emphasis on collecting and exhibiting contemporary glass, but it will also address issues about the important role museums can play in keeping alive local heritage and traditions.
