Marking the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus school, the Getty Research Institute exhibition “Bauhaus Beginnings,” opening June 11, considers the school’s early dedication to spiritual expression and its development of a curriculum based on the elements deemed fundamental to all forms of artistic practice. More than 250 rare objects will be on view, including woodcut prints, drawings, collages, photography, textile samples, artists’ books, student notebooks, masters’ teaching aids and notes, letters, and ephemera from the school’s founding and early years. The exhibition runs June 11 – October 13, 2019.
This exhibition will be accompanied by the online exhibition “Bauhaus: Building the New Artist,” also launching June 11, which further explores the school’s history, theoretical underpinnings, and novel pedagogy. “Building the New Artist,” features more than 50 rare objects not available in the gallery exhibition and includes three interactive activities modeled after exercises developed by Bauhaus masters—a Wassily Kandinsky color survey, a Josef Albers 3D paper cutting exercise, and a customizable experience that embodies the spirit of Oskar Schlemmer’s “Triadic Ballet.”
