Glass: Material Matters was the first exhibition of contemporary glass organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and it included more than fifty works from LACMA’s permanent collection. This eclectic presentation was organized to reflect a spectrum of thematic, formal, and technical directions in glass primarily from the mid-1980s to the present; the works of authors such as Zaha Hadid, Norman Foster, Maya Lin, and Rem Koolhaas, who have been important innovators in glass.

This book explores the artistic use of glass across a diverse range of decorative objects, sculpture, conceptual art, and architecture. It highlights virtuoso techniques and formal innovation in works from Dale Chihuly, Vera Liskova, Larry Bell, Thomas Patti, Lino Tagliapietra, Jessica Loughlin, Christopher Wilmarth, and Toshio Iezumi that directly challenge old assumptions about "art" versus "craft," demonstrating how glass is now recognized as a legitimate primary material for artists and architects.
