New Glass Now gives voice to a new generation of artists and designers who are harnessing the possibilities of glass to respond to our complex contemporary moment. Though just the tip of the iceberg, these 100 pieces are an introduction to the incredible diversity of contemporary glassmaking and thinking. From technically masterful vessels to experiments in the chemistry of glass, these works challenge the very notion of what the material of glass is and what it can do. This is the present tense of contemporary glass. This is New Glass Now.
In 2018, the Museum launched an open call for submissions to artists and designers from around the world, asking for works made in the last three years. Anyone working in glass could apply, and all — from the novice hobbyist to the most famous artists — were given equal consideration. Over 1,400 individuals and companies submitted nearly 4,000 images. To choose the works in New Glass Now, the Museum asked a panel to review the submissions and select 100 artworks representative of the diverse approaches to glassworking today. This exhibition is the result of their varied perspectives and experiences.
New Glass Now is on view at The Corning Museum of Glass through January 5, 2020.
