REVIEW – Bauhaus Now!
In review of Bauhaus Now! in The Age, Ray Edgar writes:
“Messy, hallucinogenic and phantasmagorical are not words we associate with the Bauhaus. However in a new exhibition to mark the movement’s centenary there are none of the sleek functional industrial design products synonymous with the Bauhaus’ ongoing legacy; nor images of gleaming glass and steel towers that encapsulate its 20th century modernity. Instead the works on display at Buxton Contemporary’s main gallery are a provocative interpretation of the famous art and design school’s ideas and teachings.”
