Heller Gallery is pleased to present Metamorphosis, the gallery’s first solo exhibition introducing new work by Swedish artist Malin Pierre. Pierre is part of a new group of women artists working with glass in Sweden, whose feminist lens permeates their work. The luscious curves of her vessel-based pieces, some of which are inherently anthropomorphic and suggestive of the female figure, are always juxtaposed with the fragility of glass.
Heller Gallery will open its doors to an exhibition by the octogenarian Italian maestro Lino Tagliapietra, who announced his retirement from the furnace last month. The exhibition, on view from October 8 – November 6, 2021, focuses on prime examples of new and archived works and honors the unprecedented 75 years Tagliapietra, who just celebrated his 87th birthday, has spent practicing his art. The exhibition is curated by Douglas Heller, one of the leading authorities on contemporary glass.
