Vera Molnár: Icône 2020 is an exhibition centred on a new commission, Icône 2020, founded, produced, and curated by Francesca Franco. This is Vera Molnár’s first ever glass sculpture in a career that spans over eighty years. Taking the new commission as a centre point, this exhibition explores the process that made this sculpture possible, bringing together preparatory sketches, original plotter drawings, and documentation material that reveal the complexities behind the making of Icône 2020, encouraging new thinking about sculpture and the unimaginable ramifications of computational art.
