This exhibition is a retrospective as well as a prelude to a large solo exhibition of artwork by Meitner in 2023.
Richard Meitner (US/NL) is an icon. For many decades he has covered the boundaries of glass art under a layer of paint, a film of photo transfers or a crust of glass grains. He complements them with found objects, textiles or colourful sequins. Without many words, but with expressive images, always renewing and recognizable. The largest collector of Meitner's artwork is Dr. D. Schrijvers who owns more than 70 objects by this exceptional artist. For some years now GlazenHuis has been managing this collection together with the Designmuseum Gent.
