Exhibition Website

Sep 23 2017 - Feb 18 2018

This exhibition will feature works from Mia’s and Al and Ingrid Lenz Harrison’s collections created during the 1920s and early 1930s contemporaneously to August Sander’s People of the Twentieth Century portraits, shown in New Pictures: Omer Fast, Appendix. Primarily featuring works from Mia’s photographic collection, this exhibition will also feature prints, drawings, sculptures, and a painting created by artists in Germany during the Weimar Republic. Approximately 40 works created by artists in the Bauhaus, New Objectivity and Dada movements address the myriad shared societal concerns during this time and the artists’ search for truth in a time when the truth was being misshapen for political gain.
