Exhibition: Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr, Jr., and Philip Johnson
Until 21st August 2016, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal, Canada
The exhibition traces the development of modern design from Bauhaus up to the influential MoMA exhibitions of the 1930s. It brings together archival documents and over seventy design objects – furniture, textiles, and industrial design products – including twenty-one from the Liliane and David M. Stewart Collection, held today by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and some Bauhaus and New Bauhaus pieces on loan from MoMA.
Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr, Jr., and Philip Johnson is organized around five major themes: Bauhaus in America; Johnson’s Apartment; Barr’s Apartment; The Exhibition Machine Art at MoMA; and The Spreading of a Modern Aesthetic in America. The exhibition combines the presentation of design objects with an original experience paying tribute to the bold spirit of the two men.
