Moholy-Nagy: Future Present

Soloman R. Guggenheim, New York

NOW CLOSED

The first comprehensive retrospective of the work of László Moholy-Nagy (1895–1946) to appear in the United States in nearly 50 years, this long overdue presentation will reveal a utopian artist who believed that art could work hand-in-hand with technology for the betterment of humanity. The exhibition will present an unparalleled opportunity to examine the career of this pioneering painter, photographer, sculptor, and filmmaker as well as graphic, exhibition, and stage designer, who was also an influential teacher at the Bauhaus, a prolific writer, and later the founder of Chicago’s Institute of Design.
