New Glass Now is an international survey of contemporary glass celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Museum’s flagship contemporary publication, New Glass Review. For 40 years, New Glass Review has served as an annual benchmark for contemporary glass, documenting the innovation, dexterity, and creativity of artists, designers, and architects working in this challenging material. New Glass Now also commemorates the 40th and 60th anniversaries, respectively, of two groundbreaking exhibitions in the Museum’s history: New Glass: A Worldwide Survey (1979) and Glass 1959. These landmark exhibitions documented glass on a global scale and brought unprecedented critical and popular attention to the material, its makers, and designers. Just like New Glass Review and its precursor exhibitions, New Glass Now will be curated from an open call for submissions by the Museum’s curator of modern and contemporary glass and a panel of guest curators. Selected entries will be included in both New Glass Review 40 and the exhibition New Glass Now.
