The Biennale for Crafts & Design 2017
tactile qualities, conceptual provocations and outstanding craftsmanship
A total of 27 projects have been selected among the 146 applicants for this year’s Biennale exhibition, which is on show from 5 through 27 May at the Copenhagen art gallery ‘Museumsbygningen’. In putting together the exhibition, the jury relied on this year’s Biennale theme ‘Liquid Life’ as the unifying concept in a multifaceted and nuanced story about contemporary craft and design.
The opening day of the Biennale, 4 May 2017, is a day of celebration for the professional craftmakers and designers, with the awarding of the Biennale Prize as an important highlight. The award comes with a prize sum of DKK 100,000 donated by the private foundation Grosserer L. F. Foghts Fond.
