Through Sunday, Oct. 25
"Modernism at Evergreen: Erno Fabry (1906-1984)”
FREE with museum admission, and on view as part of regular guided tours.
Erno Fabry was one of the most prolific tastemakers to successfully transmit modern design to the post-World War II American home; however, his work has gone largely unrecorded. Modernism at Evergreen: Erno Fabry (1906-1984) is the first exhibition devoted to the Czech-born architect and designer. This retrospective of Fabry’s career features approximately 45 never-before exhibited pieces of furniture, architectural plans, drawings, textiles, and photographs, revealing that Fabry was a powerful force in the architectural theory and practice of his era. The exhibition—on view in the museum’s North Wing Gallery as part of regular guided tours—is co-curated by Evergreen director-curator James Archer Abbott, and students enrolled in his spring 2009 Johns Hopkins undergraduate seminar, Curating Culture at Evergreen Museum & Library. It is complemented by a fully-illustrated catalogue, which will be available in the Evergreen Museum Shop.
