About the exhibition
In April 2021, the Toyama Glass Art Museum and The Corning Museum of Glass (USA), one of the world’s largest glass collections, signed an agreement to cooperate on cultural projects, beginning with this joint presentation of the exhibition “New Glass Now.”
Since 1959, when The Corning Museum of Glass opened the exhibition “Glass 1959,” it has promoted an understanding of trends in contemporary glass through initiatives ranging from the 1979 exhibition “New Glass: A Worldwide Survey,” to publication of the New Glass Review, and ongoing support for glass artists. At the same time, the Museum has acquired a superb and extensive collection of contemporary glass.
This 2022 exhibition will present, on special loan, works by more than fifty artists and collectives that were exhibited in The Corning Museum “New Glass Now” show in 2019 and subsequently added to its collection. These works, gathered from around the world through open submission and subjected to a rigorous selection process, offer new types of expression drawn from the features of glass as a material, and the diverse endeavors of artists addressing themes that encompass the conditions and challenges we face today. Don’t miss this very special opportunity to view a variety of works that brilliantly capture the state of contemporary glass today.
