To mark the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus, the Los Angeles Forum of Architecture and Urban Design is hosting a panel discussion about the influence of Bauhaus (whether directly or obliquely) on current leading Los Angeles creatives from a number of disciplines. The panel will take place at WUHO Gallery on Saturday, September 21st at 5pm.
Each panelist will juxtapose two images side-by-side: one from their own body of work and one produced by Bauhaus members, teachers, graduates, or practitioners. Panelists will be highlighting how the ideas, techniques, or principles embedded in the Bauhaus legacy might be seen as resonating with and informing their own work, as a way of raising issues, finding common themes, and provoking discussion on the current state of creativity in Los Angeles. The event will align with WUHO’s exhibition BAUHAUS PHOTO, which showcases photography from the Bauhaus Archive and will be concurrently on view at the WUHO Gallery.
