New Glass Review

New Glass Review

New Glass Review, a flagship publication of The Corning Museum of Glass, is an international survey of contemporary glass. 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.

Inspired by two landmark exhibitions – New Glass: A Worldwide Survey (1979) and Glass 1959New Glass Review has documented glass on a global scale and brought unprecedented critical and popular attention to the material, its makers, and designers. Both the 1959 and 1979 exhibitions 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.

The Corning Museum of Glass is looking forward to 2019 when we will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the publication with an exhibition and publication. Entries selected for New Glass Review 40 will also be featured in the exhibition New Glass 2019, opening in May 2019.
