Topics

The Arts

Explore two new exhibitions of prints and photographs with curators Patrick Murphy, Lia and William Poorvu Assistant Curator of Prints and Drawings, and Anne Havinga, Estrellita and Yousuf Karsh Chair of Photography. “Radical Geometries: Bauhaus Prints, 1919–33” marks the hundredth anniversary of the founding of Germany’s influential school of art, architecture, and design with more than 60 rarely seen works on paper. Murphy discusses the work of five major Bauhaus artists—Josef Albers, Lyonel Feininger, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, and László Moholy-Nagy. In “Postwar Visions: European Photography, 1945–60,” Havinga explores mid-century photographic abstraction and its correlations across continents. These photographers sought to make expressive images by means of innovative interpretations of daily life.
