April 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus (1919–1933), an architecture and applied art school that moved between the German cities of Weimar, Dessau, and Berlin before it was forced to close by the Nazi government. The Bauhaus cannot be summed up by any one place, style, or workshop, but its influence on arts education can still be felt today. Although often associated with its most familiar names, figures like Walter Gropius, László Moholy-Nagy, and Joseph and Anni Albers, the Bauhaus’s reputation is also indebted to the hundreds of women and men who attended the school between 1919 and 1933. This exhibition brings together prints, photographs, ceramics, furniture, and examples of graphic design from LACMA’s Robert Gore Rifkind Center for German Expressionist Studies and Departments of Decorative Arts, Modern Art, Photography, and Prints and Drawings, to consider the Bauhaus’s diverse and complicated legacy and its lasting contributions to modern art, architecture, and design.
