Must See: Bauhaus at MoMA NY – 11/8/09 – 1/25/10

For those of you who can appreciate modern design, you’ll want to catch the new Bauhaus exhibit at the MoMA NY starting in two days! The Bauhaus was the famous and influential school of avant-garde art that was founded in 1919 and shut down by the Nazis in 1933. The school brought together artists, architects, and designers in an extraordinary conversation about the nature of art in the age of technology. Aiming to rethink the very form of modern life, the Bauhaus became one of the most influential currents in Modernist architecture and modern design and had a profound influence upon subjects like art, architecture, graphic design, interior design, industrial design, and typography. What are some of the lessons that have carried on from that time and place? Form follows function, a religious devotion to simplicity and how one can dissolve the boundaries between art, craft, and design. Via Moma: “The exhibition gathers over four hundred works that reflect the broad range of the school's productions, including industrial design, furniture, architecture, graphics, photography, textiles, ceramics, theater design, painting, and sculpture, many of which have never before been exhibited in the United States.” I may have to make a special trip out to NY just to see this.
