Glass: Material Matters

Art of the Americas Building, Level 2
April 30, 2006–December 10, 2006

Glass: Material Matters is the first exhibition of contemporary glass organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and incorporates more than fifty works from LACMA’s permanent collection. This eclectic presentation is organized to reflect a spectrum of thematic, formal, and technical directions in glass primarily from the mid-1980s to the present; the works of such artists as Zaha Hadid, Norman Foster, Maya Lin, and Rem Koolhaas, who have been important innovators in glass. This show with its diversity of subjects will underscore LACMA's commitment to the collection and display of contemporary works in glass.

This exhibition was organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and was made possible by Daniel Greenberg and Susan Steinhauser.

It was supported in part by the Glass Alliance of Los Angeles. Additional support has been provided by Ruth C. Greenberg, Roberta and Melvin Olshansky, Cynthia and Jeffrey Manocherian, the Jon and Mary Shirley Foundation, Dale and Doug Anderson, Andy and Charles Bronfman, Salli and Bernie Harris, Ellie and Mark Lainer, and Dr. Susan Krevoy and Leo Spiwak.

Curators: Howard Fox, Contemporary Art; Sarah Nichols, Guest Curator.
