Re-imagining 35 Centuries of Glass

Planning for the reinterpretation of an encyclopedic glass exhibition. 

The Corning Museum of Glass – the world’s preeminent institution devoted to one material: glass -- is embarking on a journey of organizational self-discovery. Re-imaging 35 Centuries of Glass is undertaking not just a re-fresh and re-arrangement of our permanent collection galleries, but rather a Museum-wide strategic initiative aimed at examining and presenting our collections in entirely new ways. Our intent is to probe other ways of knowing through interdisciplinary investigation, and other ways of representing by engaging and revealing the stories of humanity across time and the world. We aim to explore the social dynamics of glass – what’s included and what’s not – in order to reveal to our audiences the diversity of peoples who created, used, and/or exploited glass in their times and places, and whose work continues to resonate and explain our world today.
