Lino Tagliapietra: Between Seattle and Murano

September 20 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

On Thursday, September 20, Rago Auctions hosts editor, curator and author Andrew Page as he delivers a presentation titled, “Lino Tagliapietra: Between Seattle and Murano.”

Lino Tagliapietra earned the title of “Maestro” in his native Murano at the age of 21. In 1979, he traveled from the Venetian island of Murano, where he was born, to the Pilchuck Glass School in Seattle, Washington, where he shared closely-guarded glassblowing techniques with an audience of eager American students. This presentation will explore this cultural exchange and will demonstrate how Tagliapietra’s division of time between his homes in Seattle and Murano can be seen as the twin poles of his career as an artist.

Editor-in-chief of Glass: The UrbanGlass Art Quarterly since 2004, Andrew Page has continued the magazine’s 40-year legacy of serious discourse about art made from glass. He hosted public conversations with Lino Tagliapietra at the 2013 and 2016 Sculptural Objects Functional Art fairs in Chicago. At the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Mr. Page was co-curator of the 2017 exhibition “Lino Tagliapietra: Paintings in Glass.” He is a frequent contributor to book projects and his essay on the history of contemporary sculpture and installations in the material of glass was included in the book Contemporary Glass (Black Dog Press, 2008).

The auction house opens on Thursday, September 20 at noon. A wine and cheese reception begins at 5 pm. The presentation will begin at 6 pm.

If you are unable to R.S.V.P. in advance, please join us anyway! All are welcome.
