Exhibition Curator T. Paul Young of the Bauhaus Chicago Foundation, and John Corbett of Corbett vs. Dempsey Gallery will discuss the artists and artworks of UIMA’s current exhibition, “CUBISM COLLAGE CYBERGRAMS CONCRETE: 4 Artists from Moholy-Nagy’s School.”
This exhibition is rooted in the founding of the New Bauhaus which formally opened its doors in 1937 at the renovated Marshall Field mansion on the near south side of Chicago. This new school, directed by former Bauhaus Master László Moholy-Nagy, began a powerful and dynamic new chapter within Chicago’s art, design and educational community. The four gifted artists exhibited here, Alexander Corazzo, Gretchen Schoeninger Corazzo, Robert Nickle and Tadao Takano, are among many from Moholy-Nagy’s school whose work has received only rare exposure to a broad public audience.
This event is free and open to the public.
