RHA Friends Event

Tour of Bauhaus 100: The Print Portfolios at National Gallery of Ireland
22 Nov 2019
Time: 11am

NGI Exhibition Curator, Niamh MacNally will lead the RHA Friends on a tour of this exhibition celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus and consisting of a complete set of four Bauhaus portfolios of prints on loan from the Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart.

These significant portfolios, comprising of 52 woodcuts, etchings, lithographs and linocuts, will bring a seminal achievement in Germany to the attention of an Irish audience. Through the medium of print, the exhibition also showcases 45 renowned avant-garde artists including Lyonel Feininger, Paul Klee, Franz Marc, Max Beckmann, George Grosz, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Marc Chagall, Wassily Kandinsky, Umberto Boccioni, and Natalia Goncharova.

The motto of the Bauhaus was to ‘Rethink the World’ through art and design. The prints in this centenary exhibition, printed between 1922 and 1924 at the State Bauhaus in Weimar, explore the visionary European artists associated with the Bauhaus and provide an insight into the much larger Bauhaus phenomenon.

Booking is essential for all Friends of the RHA events. To book please email Michelle Considine, Friends co-ordinator at friends@rhagallery.ie or tel: 01 661 2558.
