Gallery Talk: An Ideal Unity: The Bauhaus & Beyond with Benjamin Benus

As director of the Bauhaus printing and advertising workshop from 1925 to 1928, the Austrian-born artist Herbert Bayer helped to shape the school’s distinctive approach to graphic design. This talk, presented in conjunction with the exhibition An Ideal Unity: The Bauhaus and Beyond, considers how Bayer, following his immigration to the United States in 1938, continued to explore and develop Bauhaus design principles within a variety of media, including book illustration, advertising, and exhibition design.

About

Benjamin Benus, an associate professor of art and design history at Loyola University in New Orleans, specializes in the history of twentieth-century art and design, with a focus on Central Europe in the years between the world wars. His research examines connections between avant-garde art, scientific illustration, and data visualization during this period. This talk will be held in NOMA’s boardroom on the second floor.

Gallery talks are casual conversations between artists, curators, and other special guests with NOMA visitors.  Louisiana residents receive free admission to NOMA on Wednesdays courtesy of The Helis Foundation.
