"Marcel Breuer and Postwar America" by Jonathan Massey

| Apr 05, 2011

The Slocum Gallery at Syracuse Architecture recently hosted "Marcel Breuer and Postwar America," an exhibition of drawings and photographs from the archive of this key modernist. The show was curated by students in a seminar I taught last fall with Barry Bergdoll, the Phillip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art and former SAH President. The class was linked to a digital humanities initiative through which Syracuse University is creating a digital edition of part of the Breuer archive. The show has closed, but it is documented in an online gallery at the Design Observer website.
