Bauhaus Chicago: Design in the City

In 1938 the Bauhaus was reborn in Chicago at the Institute of Design and the Illinois Institute of Technology through programs led by émigré educators László Moholy-Nagy and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. This exhibition showcases the broad range of work by students and faculty—from jewelry, photography, and textiles to furniture and monumental sculpture—as complex translations of the German school’s avant-garde ideals to the urban spaces, materials, and industries of the American Midwest.
