(Euronews) Contemporary craft biennial De Mains De Maîtres has opened its doors in Luxembourg.
A major exhibition dedicated to artisans and art creators — from concrete sculptors to fashion designers, glassmakers, painters and more — has been held for a second time in Luxembourg.
Taking place in Luxembourg City at the spectacular Arbed castle, a former steelmaking HQ, over 60 Luxembourgish and 30 international artists were invited to feature their creations at “De Mains de Maîtres”, which was attended by the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Luxembourg.
The biennial event aims to offer the widest representation of arts and crafts, putting the nation’s contemporary craftsmanship in the spotlight.
The theme this year was “Gestures and Wonders”.
“What we are looking for in this exhibition is diverse materials, so felt, glass, concrete, steel. That’s what’s exciting and what gives us emotion,” says Jean-Marc Dimanche, who curated the art showcase.
