Women and the Bauhaus: Weaving/Anni Albers
Wednesday, November 18, 2009, 6:30 p.m.
Theater 3 (The Celeste Bartos Theater), mezzanine, The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building
The Modern Women’s Project presents a series of four discussions on female members of the Bauhaus whose important contributions have often been overlooked in earlier histories of the school. Tonight’s program, the first in the series, features Nicholas Fox Weber, Executive Director, The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, as he spotlights Anni Albers’s works and experience at the Bauhaus, including her pivotal role in the weaving workshop. Either Leah Dickerman, Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture, and co-organizer of Bauhaus 1919–1933: Workshops for Modernity, or Adrian Sudhalter, Assistant Research Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture, will moderate the conversation. Following the program, Mr. Weber signs copies of his new book The Bauhaus Group: Six Masters of Modernism (Knopf).
In conjunction with the exhibition Bauhaus 1919–1933: Workshops for Modernity
Tickets ($10; members $8; students, seniors, and staff of other museums $5) can be purchased online or at the lobby information desk and the film desk.
