Oculus Book Talk Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr Jr. & Philip Johnson

« All Events

In the 1920s and 1930s, a new aesthetic emerged in the United States, based on the principles of the Bauhaus in Germany: rational, functional design devoid of ornament and without reference to historical styles. Alfred H. Barr, Jr., founding director of the Museum of Modern Art, and Philip Johnson, director of its architecture department, were the leading proponents of the modern approach. Shortly after meeting in 1929, they set out on a path that would transform the museum world and change the course of design in America.
