Frederick Kiesler: Vision Machines

April 25 - July 28

$18

This exhibition is a concise yet rich examination of Frederick John Kiesler’s (1890–1965) experimental design practice through the activities of his Laboratory for Design Correlation at Columbia University from the late 1930s to the early 1940s.

The exhibition will highlight two of Kiesler’s most essential and ambitious projects developed at the Laboratory: the Mobile Home Library and the Vision Machine. Together these projects illustrate the fantastical scope and applications of Kiesler’s Correalism: a design approach he conceived to “express the dynamics of continual interaction between man and his natural and technological environments.” The exhibition will be on view from April 25 through July 28.
