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.
In conjunction with the exhibition Bauhaus 1919–1933: Workshops for Modernity
