Bauhaus Now!
  • Celine Saoud

17 Aug 2019
Buxton Contemporary 26 Jul - 27 Oct 2019

One hundred years have passed since the 1919 establishment of the Bauhaus: the widely celebrated German art school dedicated to uniting fine arts, craft, design and technology. To commemorate its centenary year, Buxton Contemporary highlights the artistic influence of Bauhaus within their exhibition, Bauhaus Now!. Curated by Ann Stephen, Bauhaus Now! explores the movement's impact on the fine arts by displaying a wide range of installation, video, painting and sculpture that depict a modernised, ever-evolving and resurrected Bauhaus movement. Meticulously curated to take the audience through this Bauhaus journey, the exhibition begins with contemporary, abstract expressions of Bauhaus ideals, before ending with a tribute to classical elements of the movement.
