HDI Exhibition Pick: “Moholy-Nagy: Future Present” at the Guggenheim
So many great exhibits here in New York and so little time, but we didn’t want to miss the comprehensive retrospective of the work of László Moholy-Nagy (1895–1946) to appear in the United States in nearly fifty years at the Guggenheim. Moholy-Nagy was an influential teacher at the Bauhaus and later the founder of Chicago’s Institute of Design. This retrospective presents an overview of his work, a tour de force with 300 works in a variety of media, collages, paintings, ephemera, films, photographs and photograms, sculpture… Moholy-Nagy experimented with industrial materials, he worked with light, transparency and movement and was at the forefront of abstraction. This exhibition shows his influence on how we view the world today and it is interesting to see how advanced the vision of Moholy-Nagy was and how relevant his art was in the ever changing and evolving technological world today. Don’t miss out on this retrospective, on view until September 7th, 2016.
