Talk and slide lecture by Lara Allison
Ms. Allison, an instructor at the School of the Art Institute,
will present a talk based on her dissertation on the arrival of European Modernism in America, the New Bauhaus/School of Design under the direction of László Moholy-Nagy, and the implementation of European modern, avant-garde art and design culture into American advertising.


László Moholy-Nagy, Katherine Kuh, and Man Ray at the Katherine Kuh Gallery, Chicago, 1942

Her talk will focus on gallery owner/Art Institute curator Katherine Kuh, and Walter Paepcke of Container Corp. of America, patron and board member of the Institute of Design and how these two key individuals contributed and shaped the introduction of European Modernism to Chicago.

Katherine Kuh, both in her role as a gallery owner in Chicago and as the curator of Modern Art at the Art Institute museum, was one of the primary supporters of many artists affiliated with European modernism, abstraction, and the Bauhaus.

Her gallery was one of the only in Chicago during this time that regularly exhibited the works of Alexander Archipenko, Robert Jay Wolff, Josef Albers, Wasily Kandinsky, George Keck, Paul Klee, Gyorgy Kepes, László Moholy-Nagy, and many more.



Walter Paepcke, who both as the founder and president of the Chicago-based Container Corp. of America and as a supporter and board member of the School/Institute of Design, made significant advances in the collaboration of modern artists and commercial interests.
