We’re delighted that several pieces made and developed at Berengo Studio have been selected to feature in this year’s stunning New Glass Now, the survey of contemporary glass art presented by the Corning Museum of Glass, one of the most important museums of glass in the world.
Thousands of submissions were curated by an international panel to produce the exhibition which features work from more than 25 countries by hundreds of artists. All the works featured were produced in the last three years for this third exhibition of the series which dates back to 1959, meaning Corning are celebrating forty years of New Glass Now.
It’s a real honour that we have a selection of pieces within this immensely important survey of contemporary glass art. From Abdulnasser Gharem’s politically stirring glass Stamp (Moujaz) and Erwin Wurm’s comical glass water-bottle Mutter which stands on its own two feet, to Monica Bonvicini’s violent contortion of glass belts for Bonded. The works made at Berengo Studio are in excellent company too: our very own Glasstress alumni Dustin Yellin can also be found at the exhibition among others, proof that there are links to Murano all over this international edition if you know where to look.
