A century after its founding, scholars and the art-and-design interested public associate the Bauhaus with modernist architecture, avant-garde design and abstract painting by artists such as Kandinsky, Klee, or Moholy-Nagy. Until recently, mainstream accounts of the school have most often failed to acknowledge the significance of Bauhaus women’s work either on its own or in relation to its impact on the institution. In this talk, Elizabeth Otto, PhD, Associate Professor of Art History and Visual Studies, University of Buffalo College of Arts and Sciences and Ailsa Mellon Bruce Senior Fellow, 2019 – 2020, The Center for Advanced Studies in the Visual Arts, National Gallery of Art, will focus on the vibrant artistic contributions made by female Bauhäusler throughout the fourteen-year existence of this early 20th century movement.

Free to Members, W&M Students, Faculty, and Staff. Non-Members: $5
