Visites guidées de l'exposition temporaire Arweider 03.12.2017-03.01.2018

The group exhibition Arweider at La Grande Place, musée du cristal Saint-Louis, in Saint-Louislès-Bitche (Moselle, France) is produced by the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès, as part of its continuing support for temporary exhibitions at the Foundation’s own art spaces (in Brussels, Singapore, Seoul and Tokyo) and in partnership with leading public institutions (Formes Simples with the Centre Pompidou-Metz, and L’Esprit du Bauhaus at the Arts Décoratifs, Paris).
Each year, the Foundation presents two exhibitions of contemporary art at Saint-Louis, with a focus on artisanship and/or skilled expertise. Each season of three themed exhibitions is co-produced with a leading cultural institution in the Lorraine region, in association with the cristallerie Saint-Louis and La Grande Place, musée du cristal Saint-Louis. Following the inaugural season, in partnership with the Centre Pompidou-Metz, our guest institution for 2016 and 2017
is the region’s public fund for contemporary art, 49 Nord 6 Est – Frac Lorraine, Metz. Arweider is the third show in the current season. In the land of the ‘Étoiles Terrestres’* glass and crystal-making are part of everyday life. But who are
the Arweider (Workers in Platt**), who handle the blowing tubes and transform the molten glass? For ten months, artists Anne Delrez and Julie Luzoir worked with the men and women of the crystal foundries, to create a new, participative exhibition based on their life stories. Together, they cast a subtle spotlight on the personal tastes and histories that form the lifeblood of an industry.
