2024 ARTIST

OF THE FUTURE

At Imagine Museum, we strive to highlight the most innovative and creative contemporary glass artists. Our institution honors pioneering glass artists annually with our Artist of the Future Award.

For 2024, we have chosen two artists, one of which is British-American Glass Artist, Anthony James. Known for his monumental glass sculptures and installations, James’s approach to glass highlights the material’s versatile properties. His innovative use of light and space further elevates his work, creating immersive experiences that redefine the boundaries of contemporary art. 

 

Our second recipient is American Master Glass Artist, John Kiley. Thematically, much of Kiley’s work explores the scientific and conceptual aspects of glass. With a highly experimental approach to glass exemplified by his mastery of primary geometric forms in glass sculpture, Kiley has forever changed the landscape of contemporary glass art. 

For 2023, we have chosen two artists, one of which is the German glass artist Wilfried Grootens whose career in the glass industry spans over 50 years. His creativity and mastery of glass techniques represent contemporary glass art’s bright future.  

Our second recipient is influential Czech artist Vladimira Klumpar. Klumpar creates both small and large-scale glass sculptures that organically bend and fold in ways one would not expect from glass as a medium. Though her work is abstract, she emphasizes that all of her pieces have a philosophical subtext.
