LONDON.- Halcyon Gallery will open its new gallery on New Bond Street on 5 December 2011, with an inaugural exhibition by Dale Chihuly. The artist comments, “Returning to London to show this important collection of work is truly exciting. The inaugural exhibition at Halcyon Gallery, in such an incredible building, presents the ideal space to show this work – I’m pushing the boundaries of the medium as far as they can go in terms of scale and new techniques all the time.”
The timing of this exhibition is significant for Chihuly, as 2012 will mark fifty years of the International Studio Glass Movement. Chihuly is a founding member and leading protagonist of the Movement, which started from humble beginnings in America in 1962.Since the early days, Chihuly has done more to revolutionise how glass is perceived as an art form worldwide, than any other artist working with the medium.
