Moholy-Nagy at the Guggenheim Museum

I pretty much swooned my way through this magnificent exhibition of over 300 things made by Moholy-Nagy during a lifetime of being an artist. The exhibition is striking in its design and installation featuring his abstract paintings from the 20's that are strong and subtle, constructions photographs, drawings, posters, covers for magazines and more. A darling of the Bauhaus he lived and worked all over the world including Chicago where he had his own school for a while. He also played around with materials that were never used for art including plexiglas that he used in sculptures and mobiles. The word unconventional is used a lot to describe him and his work. This is a show I can easily see again. It runs through sept 7th.
