Bauhaus Now: Curator’s Tour

Celebrate the closing of Bauhaus Now with an intimate and exclusive tour led by exhibition curator Professor Andrew McNamara.

Join us for an afternoon of art, design and history as Andrew takes you through the complex and beautiful stories that built the Bauhaus legacy.

Bring to life the little-known story of how revolutionary ideas of the Weimar Republic in Germany influenced modernist art, design and architecture in Brisbane and Australia. This tour will reveal the migrant and refugee contribution to Australian life and art history in the inter-war period and post-Second World War years.
