Aspen Film and TACAW present BAUHAUS SPIRIT 100 YEARS OF BAUHAUS

Aspen Film and TACAW

Location: The Temporary Times: 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Celebrate the 100th anniversary of Walter Gropius’ Bauhaus with this lively and wide-ranging exploration of the movement uniting modern design, art, architecture and performing arts with communal social living to form an academic discipline and utopian way of life.

Combining free imagination and play with strict structure, Bauhaus’ members included Anni Albers, Marcel Breuer, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, László Moholy-Nagy, Oskar Schlemmer and more. The most comprehensive film on its subject to date, Bauhaus Spirit explores this influential 20th-century movement’s history, legacy, and continued relevance in an age where function and environmental sustainability have taken on new urgency.

This event is presented in partnership with Aspen Film and is part of the Bauhaus 100: Aspen celebration.

Great Ideas of Bauhaus: Print Exhibition Opening Reception

Red Brick Center for the Arts

Location: Red Brick Center for the Arts Times: 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Red Brick Center for the Arts is excited to join the Roaring Fork Valley in the international celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus.

In 2019, numerous local organizations will collaborate on events to commemorate this modernist art school, honor its impact on Aspen and reignite the creative power that began a century ago

The Red Brick Center for the Arts will feature an exhibition of posters made by artists working in the printmaking medium. The format of the exhibit will take its inspiration from the Great Ideas of Western Man, an advertising campaign for Walter Paepcke’s Container Corporation, in which artists created an ad representing a quote from famous literary works.

To reexamine the idea of the Bauhaus in a format that pays tribute to Paepcke’s vision, the Red Brick Center for the Arts will invite artists to select a quote that exemplifies Bauhaus theories and beliefs and create a visual representation of the ideas.

Opening reception with the artists, Wednesday, June 5, 5-7pm.
