Apply for Corning’s New Glass Review 44
Applications are now open for glass artists to enter their work for the prestigious New Glass Review 44 – the flagship annual publication of The Corning Museum of Glass in the US. Anyone from a beginning student to an established artist can submit.
Most years, around 1,000 submissions are received from artists, designers and organisations in more than 50 countries. These submissions are reviewed by a panel of curators, scholars, and artists, led by Corning’s curator of post war and contemporary glass, or a guest curator. Untimately, 100 images are selected for publication.
New Glass Review grew out of a ground-breaking 1975 meeting with early leaders in studio glass who saw that this thriving field required a place of encounter, a place to discover the work of other artists, designers, collectors, museums and enthusiasts. Four years later, after the exhibition ‘New Glass: A Worldwide Survey’ brought studio glass to people across the US and Europe, New Glass Review was founded.
According to Corning what appears in New Glass Review is not what is ‘best’ in glass in a given year. Instead, it is a collection of works, chosen by individuals from across the world of glass, arranged to spark new ways to see and think about this material and the people who use it expressively.
Alongside the 100 selected images, the magazine includes essays from the selectors, a feature on the Museum’s Rakow Commission recipient, plus a review of recent acquisitions by museums worldwide.
Submitted work must have been made over the past year. The submission deadline is 3 January 2024.
