20 July – 1 December 2019
Print Gallery | Admission free
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus, the Gallery is borrowing a complete set of four Bauhaus portfolios of prints from the Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart.
These significant portfolios, comprising 52 woodcuts, etchings, lithographs and linocuts, will bring a seminal achievement in Germany to the attention of an Irish audience. Through the medium of print, this exhibition also provides us with an opportunity to showcase 45 renowned avant-garde artists including Lyonel Feininger, Paul Klee, Franz Marc, Max Beckmann, George Grosz, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Marc Chagall, Wassily Kandinsky, Umberto Boccioni, and Natalia Goncharova.
The motto of the Bauhaus was to ‘Rethink the World’ through art and design. The prints in this centenary exhibition, printed between 1922 and 1924 at the State Bauhaus in Weimar, explore the visionary European artists associated with the Bauhaus and provide an insight into the much larger Bauhaus phenomenon.
An exhibition in cooperation with the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart
