This exhibition draws on the renowned glass collections of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague from the latter half of the 20th century and the early 21st century, showcasing a specific component of the collections: art glass. Selected works from various decades are accompanied by a chronological account of their significance that includes quotations from famous glass artists. The exhibition illustrates how these exclusive works propelled the development of art glass internationally. All the works on show here have their own histories, some extending over decades. Yet these works are timeless and remain aesthetically modern, inventive in their conception and trailblazing in their execution and the technologies used.

The exhibition’s architecture has been designed by the architect Jiří Novotný, who took inspiration from crystals and the urban environment. Visitors walking through the Cubist forms of his imaginary city with its eight pyramids will gradually discover the more than 120 works and art objects on display. The oldest objects are from 1940s while the newest are much more recent.

The exhibition includes also an exhibition dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the birth of Stanislav Libenský Via Lucis.
