Die Sonderschau VESSELS und die Ausstellungen präsentieren zeitgenössische Positionen der internationalen Gefäßkunst und freien Kunst aus den Bereichen Keramik, Holz, Metall, Silber, Urushi, Textil und Papier. Die vielfach ausgezeichneten Werke der Künstler der Gruppe VESSELS loten bewußt die Grenzen der künstlerischen Gefäßkunst aus und schlagen so eine Brücke zur freien Kunst.

Die klare Standarchitektur gruppierte sich 2010 um das kommunikative Highlight des Standes: die VESSELS-ROAD. Diese feierte 2010 ihre gelungene Premiere als Anziehungspunkt, Blickachse und unverwechselbarer Meeting-Point des VESSELS-stands.  Außerdem publizierte die Künstlergruppe den schon bekannten 6-seitigen Flyer zur Sonderschau. Dort finden sich Adressen der beteilgten Aussteller, je eine Abbildung ihrer Werke, einen Pressetext sowie Informationen über Unterstützer und Sponsoren  (engl. / dt.).

 


The exhibitions presents different contemporary interpretations of international art vessels in ceramics, wood, metal, silver, urushi lacquer, glass, textile and paper.

 

 

Sonderschau VESSELS 2010

The much-acclaimed and innovative works by the different artists explore the limits of vessel art, thus approaching the realm of free art. Each in their own manner, the artists explore the world in which they live. Their experiments are not without a purpose: they strive to find new paths and find answers to unusual creative or artistic issues. Most are ahead of their time.

Initiated in 2004 by Henriette and Martin Tomasi in the West of Munich, the forum is today located in the idyllic town of Kronberg im Taunus, which was formerly the home of the European artist group “Kronberger Malerkolonie”. The group VESSELS  has grown to 36 artists. The English word “VESSELS” has been the group’s logo from the beginning.

The group made its first appearance in 2004 in the internet. The homepage www.vessels.de was installed on 25 July 2004 and provided information about the artists, their intentions and works.

 

 

 

The group had its first appearance at an art fair in 2008 at the Grassimesse at the Grassimuseum for Applied Arts in Leipzig. Three flyers were published for this show presenting the artists and their ideas.

 

 

The first VESSELS SPECIAL EXHIBITION 2009 presented 14 international, much-acclaimed artists on a stand of 120 square metres at the new art fair in Karlsruhe. The homepage linked with this first project and a flyer provided all the relevant information about the group.

 

In 2010 VESSELS presented itself on a 400 sq.m stand. The VESSELS group produced a flyer for 2010 with general information about the special exhibition. 7000 invitations, all individually designed to reflect the different artists, were sent out to attract interested visitors. The latest achievement  was the launching of the “VESSELS EDITION”, a publication series featuring annual presentations of artists. The first catalogue in this series will be the catalogue of the “Special Exhibition VESSELS 2010”.

 

Another premiere was the “VESSELS ROAD”, a path leading through the entire exhibition highlighting the exhibiting artist’s masterpieces.
