Bauhaus Events at Providence College, RI

A yearlong series of exhibitions, publications and commissioned installations featuring contemporary, cutting-edge artists whose practices are inspired by or respondent to the history of the Bauhaus which was so influential on modern art, architecture, craft, design and education. The intention is to encourage critical reassessment of Bauhaus ideas, especially as they relate to art histories of geographic, ethnic and gender diversity.
