Herbert Bayer: An Introduction
A landmark exhibition celebrating Herbert Bayer’s artwork and legacy.
On view through April 2023
The inaugural exhibition, Herbert Bayer: An Introduction, curated by Bayer expert Bernard Jazzar, is the first major US exhibition since 1973 to present so full a range of the artist’s work from the late 1910s to the mid-1980s. The survey exhibition provides a contemporary reexamination of Bayer’s career, focusing on his role as a fine artist. With over 150 pieces arranged across 13 galleries, Bayer’s artworks are presented chronologically, from his teenage sketches to paintings from his final decade in Montecito, California. The exhibition includes dozens of rarely-exhibited drawings, gouaches, and watercolors as well as tapestry, sculpture, publications, works on paper, ephemera, and historical photographs.
