MoCP


Join us for a gallery talk dedicated to the history and legacy of the New Bauhaus school, later called the Institute of Design (ID). Founded in Chicago in 1937 by Lászlo Moholy-Nagy, the ID was one of the most important schools of design and photography in the United States during the twentieth century. Beyond the Frame artists Barbara Crane, Yasuhiro Ishimoto, Michael Abramson, Richard Nickel, and Ken Josephson all trained there.

Elizabeth Siegel is a curator of photography at the Art Institute of Chicago and author of the book, Taken by Design: Photography at the Institute of Design, 1937–1971 (Art Institute of Chicago, 2002). Clarissa Bonet is an artist featured in the exhibition, who will speak on the influence of the Institute of Design on her work and practice.

For in-person events, masks as well as proof of vaccination or proof of a negative Covid test within the last 72 hours are required for entry.
