To support Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr, Jr., and Philip Johnson, an exhibition that focuses on how the Museum of Modern Art’s first Director, Alfred Barr, and curator of architecture, Philip Johnson, introduced modern design to North America. The exhibition traces the development of modern design from its origins at the Bauhaus, in Dessau, Germany, to Barr and Johnson’s experiments in their homes to MoMA’s exhibitions in the 1930s and beyond. It travels to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Davis Museum at Wellesley College.
