Albers And Moholy-Nagy: From The Bauhaus To The New World
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Whitney Museum of American Art  •  Ongoing
 

This thought-provoking exhibition is an opportunity to rediscover two pioneers of Modernism: German-born Josef Albers (1888 - 1976) and Hungarian-born László Moholy-Nagy (1895 - 1946).

Spanning four decades, the exhibition takes as its starting point the early 1920s, when Albers and Moholy independently developed a rigorously abstract language. Of particular focus is the creative explosion of the Bauhaus years, when both artists moved freely between media and disciplines. It follows their separate paths through to their emigration to the US in the 1930s.

The artworks on view, including painting, sculpture, photography, film, and design objects, highlight each artist's most important and innovative work. A catalogue edited by Achim Borchardt-Hume accompanies the exhibition.
