Artist Oskar Schlemmer came to the Bauhaus, Germany’s legendary school of art, architecture, and design, in 1920. Schlemmer, known primarily at that time as a sculptor, embraced the multidisciplinary educational philosophy of the Bauhaus and began working in media and performance. Schlemmer truly left his mark in 1922 when he designed and executed his seminal performance, the Triadic Ballet. The exhibition and an accompanying installation of artworks in Gallery 250 are presented in commemoration of the centennial anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus. The exhibition is on view in Gallery 301 from May 31 through October 20.
