Bayer exhibition in Linz, Austria

In this exhibition, the Lentos Kunstmuseum in Linz, Austria, puts its Bayer Archive and Collection center stage. The Bayer Center is thrilled to share the exhibit Herbert & Joella Bayer: Joining Forces in the Service of Art, curated by Elisabeth Nowak-Thaller, which opened on September 30, 2022.

The exhibition includes more than 200 works drawn from the Lentos museum’s Bayer archive, among the most comprehensive in Europe. Nowak-Thaller focuses on Bayer’s accomplishments as a commercial designer in Germany and the United States while recognizing Joella Bayer’s often-overlooked contributions to Bayer’s creative successes.

The Exhibition is scheduled to run through January 8, 2023. The museum hosted a symposium on October 7, at which Bernard Jazzar, curator of the Bayer Center’s “Herbert Bayer: An Introduction”, was the featured speaker.
