Learning Modern
September 26, 2009 – January 9, 2010
@ Sullivan Galleries
The School of the Art Institute
33 South State Street, 7th Floor

With the world on the brink of economic and political disaster, László Moholy-Nagy and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe carried Bauhaus principles from Germany to Chicago in the late 1930s. This exhibition features projects by artists and architects, ranging in age from their 20s to 80s, who today continue a legacy of interdisciplinary innovation for better living, while exploring the central role of experiential education in the modern vision. On view are works by: BlackBox Studio/SOM, Chicago, Thom Faulders, Angela Ferreira, Andrea Fraser, Charles Harrison, Walter Hood, Ken Isaacs, Narelle Jubelin, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, Helen-Maria Nugent, Liisa Roberts, Kay Rosen, Staffan Schmidt, Jan Tichy, Arturo Vittori, Catherine Yass, and the Mark-Mark-and-Matt Collaboration.

The continued spirit of experimentation among students and faculty-for which the German Bauhaus remains a beacon-is also explored in a revolving series of “Modern Workshops” in which class investigations are presented for public view.

Modern Mondays: this series of gallery talks will be held every Monday evening at 4:30 p.m. in the Sullivan Galleries during the run of the exhibition. Espresso available courtesy of illy caffè North America, Inc. Visit www.saic.edu/exhibitions for more information.
