BAUHAUS 100

June 7, 2019 – August 31, 2019

Opening Reception: Friday, June 7 5:30PM – 8PM

BMCM+AC | 120 College Street | Asheville, NC

Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the founding of the BAUHAUS, we look at the impact of this legendary and influential school of art and design. The Bauhaus closed the same year that Black Mountain College opened (1933) and had an enormous influence on the structure and ethos of BMC. This intimate exhibition will feature materials and artworks from the Bauhaus and BMC, drawing connections through education, design, and philosophy. The Bauhaus Centennial is a global celebration, commemorating this remarkable history through exhibitions and lectures as well as exploring what the Bauhaus means in contemporary society.

Shop our collection of Bauhaus publications through our online store or in our bookshop at 120 College Street.
