MoMA by Night: Bauhaus 1919–1933: Workshops for Modernity tour
Wednesday, December 16, 2009, 8:30 p.m.
Join PopRally for an intimate evening of after-hours gallery talks in two of MoMA’s current exhibitions, and enjoy a cocktail reception with music by DJ Secret Squares.
Bauhaus 1919–1933: Workshops for Modernity explores the influential avant-garde school that brought together artists, architects, and designers in an extraordinary conversation about the nature of art in the modern age. The Bauhaus was the site of a dazzling array of experiments in the visual arts that have had a profound impact on our visual world.
Since the early 1990s, Gabriel Orozco (Mexican, b. 1962) has forged a career marked by constant surprise and innovation, blurring the boundaries between art and reality. Gabriel Orozco examines two decades of the artist’s career in a wide range of media, from a surgically altered Citroën car to exquisite drawings on airplane boarding passes.
PopRally is funded by the generous support of Jerry I. Speyer and Katherine Farley.
