László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946), a Hungarian-born photographer, filmmaker, painter, sculptor, printmaker, graphic designer, and stage designer, was also an influential teacher at the Bauhaus and later at the Institute of Design in Chicago. In his embrace of technology and exploration of new media, Moholy-Nagy foreshadowed many aspects of contemporary art. Dennis Jon, Associate Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, will discuss the life and work of Moholy-Nagy in the context of a forthcoming retrospective of the artist's work at the MIA.
