Exhibition: Marcel Breuer and Postwar America

“Marcel Breuer and Postwar America”, an exhibition from the Breuer archives, is on display through March 29 in Slocum Gallery at Syracuse University School of Architecture. It features images of 120 drawings, as well as photographs, documenting 13 of Breuer’s major postwar buildings and projects. Full-scale reproductions highlight themes that characterized some of Breuer’s lesser-known major work and document his responses to the needs and opportunities of postwar American society.

The show was curated by architecture students as part of a seminar on the Bauhaus architect taught by visiting professor Barry Bergdoll, the Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art, with Jonathan Massey, Syracuse Architecture associate professor and undergraduate chair. The exhibition is the outcome of their work in the extensive Breuer archive at the Library Special Collections Research Center (SCRC). Hours M-F, 9-5. Closing reception March 22 at 5 pm.
