This year’s Artist-in-Residence programme at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass will host 13 Artists-in-Residence to experiment and research new techniques in glass.
From March through November, The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass will host 13 Artists-in-Residence to experiment and research new techniques in glass. Among them are a Korean artist who investigates sculptural expressions in cold-worked glass, an Irish artist whose background in textiles informs her current work in glass, a young Cincinnati artist who explores colour in glass and a Californian artist whose performance-based experiments in glass yield unexpected results.
For one month, each artist will have full access to The Studio’s state-of-the-art facilities, and will be supported with technical assistance, housing, a food stipend and studio space. They also will have access to the Museum’s renowned Rakow Research Library, Museum staff, and the nearly 50,000-object collection, which spans 35 centuries of glassmaking and represents the art, history, science and design of glass.
“We like to see glass used in new and innovative ways by our Artists-in-Residence and we try to choose a diversity of artists and techniques to explore the many ways glass can be used in art,” says Amy Schwartz, director of The Studio. “We are looking forward to hosting this year’s artists and providing them with time and resources at The Studio to immerse themselves in their art, as well as access to the Museum’s collection, the comprehensive Library and the community here in Corning.”
The artists will provide public lectures during their Residencies, describing their artistic inspirations and their work at The Studio. Lectures will take place in The Studio Lecture Room at 12:00 p.m. on specified dates. Registration is not required, and admission is free.
