New Glass 2019 – Call for Entries

Hibiki-morbido 04 by Yasuo Okuda, New Glass Review 37

The Corning Museum of Glass invites submissions to the exhibition and publication New Glass 2019, an international survey of contemporary glass celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Museum’s flagship publication, New Glass Review. Launched in 1979, 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. Selected entries will be included in both New Glass Review 40 and the exhibition New Glass 2019.

Opening in May 2019, New Glass 2019 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.

In each iteration, the exhibition documented the prevailing concerns of glassmakers and thinkers. In 1959, industrial glass reigned; the exhibition was full of elegant sets of colorless glasses, decanters, and vases. By 1979, Studio Glass had made its mark, and the submissions were full of the whimsy and experimentation that characterized the movement.

What will 2019 hold?

That depends on you! Submit your work by May 31 to help chart the course for the future of glass.
