Bauhaus twenty-21: An Ongoing Legacy – Photographs by Gordon Watkinson will be on display at the Art Museum of The University of Memphis, September 19, 2013, through January 5, 2014. The catalogue is published by Birkhäuser Verlag, Basel.
AIA Memphis members are invited to a private reception celebrating the exhibit on Thursday, September 19 at 5pm..
Conceived as a multidisciplinary project encompassing architecture, design, and photography, Bauhaus twenty-21 not only conveys the architectural history, but also illustrates the enduring philosophies of the Bauhaus. The exhibition, by creating a visual as well as theoretical dialogue between the timeless modernism of Bauhaus architecture and the visions of contemporary practitioners, offers a unique perspective on Bauhaus design philosophy as it relates to architecture and its relevance in today’s society.
