Modernism Shows & Events

  • Celebrating the women who particpated as artists and students during the short but influential Bauhaus period, this on-going show has already focused on textile designer Benita Koche-Otte and painter Lou Scheper-Berkenkamp. Next up is weaver and photographer Gertrud Aindt, whose folio of self-portraits preceded Cindy Sherman by fifty years.  Find more information @ bauhaus.de/museum

  • Only a show about small things could have this many big names. Described as "intimate, whimsical, wearable sculpture", the exhibit showcases over 100 pieces of jewelry created by artists and commissioned or purchased for the collection of curator.... Artist-creators include Louise Nevelson, Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, Anish Kapor,Roy Lichtenstein, Michele Oka Doner and many, many more of today's best- and little-known artists.

  • This on-going retrospective highlights Eileen Gray's deserved recognition as a truly singular master of 20th Century design and architecture. Balancing a poetic understanding of objects and space with a profound grasp of both the possibilities and requirements of materials and engineering, Gray produced a body of work that is simply astounding.

  • EXHIBITION AT THE FIU-WOLFSONIAN MUSEUM IN MIAMI BEACH
    NOT TO BE MISSED IF YOU'RE IN THE AREA!!!
    Designers were called upon to create interiors, furniture, and appliances that would save time and money, and that could be easily cleaned. Advertisers promoted these new products with images and slogans that held out the promise of a healthier home and pledged to make the drudgery of household chores a thing of the past. Many of these same ideas continue to interest us today.
