A State of Matter: Online Research Events

To mark the United Nations International Year of Glass 2022, the Henry Moore Institute is currently showing A State of Matter: Modern and Contemporary Glass Sculpture, a major new exhibition exploring glass as a material for sculpture.

Join us online for a series of free talks and discussions with curator Dr Clare O'Dowd and many of the artists featured in the exhibition, as we celebrate the skill of master glassmakers and the infinitely variable material that is glass.
