The Bauhaus existed for only 14 years in Germany, but for 100 years its ideas have now been passed on and its products relaunched, imitated and further developed. Marking the centenary of the Bauhaus’s founding, the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung’s exhibition at the Ber-linische Galerie is presenting famous, familiar and forgotten Bauhaus originals and recounting the history behind the objects.

Patril k vedúcim osobnostiam postmodernej generácie, ktorá okolo polovice osemdesiatych rokov 20. storočia vystúpila s programom neoexpresívnej maľby inšpirovanej talianskou transavantgardou a nemeckým hnutím Neue Wilde. Výbušným temperamentom, razantnou a odvážnou metaforou ironizoval ikonografické symboly končiacej éry socializmu. Na jeho súčasných rozmerných maliarskych plátnach „barokovo-secesného” a pop-artového strihu založených na veľkoryso plošnom farebnom a kresbovom rozvrhu sa krížia rozmanité aktuálne a historické podnety. Je príkladom autora, ktorý síce prevažne maľuje, ale občas si odskočí aj k sochárstvu.

Wu Tsang’s solo exhibition There is no nonviolent way to look at somebody presents films in dialogue with her sculptural practice, working with the interaction of glass, light and text, and including a new stained glass commission conceived for the Gropius Bau.

This exhibition was inspired by images taken through the Hubble Telescope. Their indescribable beauty astounded Lerner and drove her to try to capture space in the monoprint medium. She was also inspired by the desert sky in Southern California, and she has dedicated herself to capturing the clouds, the moon, and the sunsets. Pure, and beyond the touch of man, Lerner believes outer space is a gift to our world. This will be Lerner’s first exhibition in Washington, DC.

This exhibition traces the evolution of the DC-based WD Printmaking workshop, which began with Percy and Alice Martin’s opening their Adams Morgan home as a collaborative artists’ studio fifty years ago. The aim was to create a place where all artists (not necessarily trained in printmaking) could come together to explore the printmaking craft and create original prints. Emphasis was placed on experimentation and innovation. The studio was open to the artists twenty-four hours a day. The workshop moved with Martin and his family into the basement of their home on Lamont Street in Mount Pleasant. Alice Martin recalls the time when the WD Workshop ran classes, presented demonstrations, and held regularly scheduled critique sessions. Artists were coming and going during all hours of the day and night. Participating WD artists achieved successful printmaking careers working in diverse styles. Featuring historical and recent work by members of the workshop.

Moves like Walter: New Curators Open the Corcoran Legacy Collection is a product of Director and Curator Jack Rasmussen’s spring course on curatorial practice. Upon receipt of the Corcoran Collection, graduate students in art history, arts management, and studio art have curated a playful and provocative interpretation of the 9,000-piece gift. The exhibition is inspired by Walter Hopps, briefly the Director of the Corcoran and an erratic but seminal American curator of contemporary art. The curators have divided their responses into five sub-groups, Boundless: Existing Within Ambiguous Space, The Road Home, The Selfless Spirit: Nature vs. Nurture and the Effects of Motherhood in the Corcoran Collection, American Legacy: Reconsidering Non-Western Subjects in the Corcoran Collection, and Redefining the Gaze: Shifting the Power.

Using the medium of drawing to varied and distinctive effect, Rogers, Sures, and Watkin trace human connections to the natural world—across time and varied landscapes. The three artists work from both a consciousness of drawing’s ties to illustration and evidence; and, the medium’s unique ability to transmit the artist’s “hand” and personal response to their subject. From the deserts of Kenya, forests of the Midwest, to the Potomac watershed, these artists are deeply attuned to the mutually affecting relationship between the anthropological and natural worlds.

Peter Wächtler, born in Hannover, Germany, in 1979, lives and works in Berlin. He writes texts, produces films, draws, paints pictures, and makes sculptures and objects. The human figure is central to all of his work. It appears in various forms, attitudes, poses, and interactions, just as it does in real life.
