On Tuesday, February 25th, Mark Peiser will deliver a lecture titled "Reinventing the Wheel: And Then Some," at the Bard Graduate Center in New York City. As part of the "Paul and Irene Hollister Lectures on Glass" series, the eminent glass artist will discuss the evolution of the medium using the history of his own work as an example. As Peiser told Glass in an interview from 2010, his approach approach to the material is heavily influenced by his graduate studies at the Institute of Design in Chicago, where the importance of process and "honesty" were emphasized. A focus on the transparency (in both a literal and figurative sense) of glass can be seen across his wide and diverse oeuvre.
Glass: The UrbanGlass Quarterly, a glossy art magazine published four times a year by UrbanGlass has provided a critical context to the most important artwork being done in the medium of glass for 35 years.
