Partners In Design: Alfred H. Barr Jr. and Phillip Johnson
Organized by the Liliane and David M. Stewart Program for Modern Design, Montréal, in collaboration with the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr?Jr. and Philip Johnson is the first exhibition to explore a pivotal development in the evolution of American design: the collaboration between the first director of the Museum of Modern Art, Alfred Barr, who taught the first undergraduate course in modern art at Wellesley in 1926, and Philip Johnson, MoMA's first curator of architecture. Together these men endeavored to bring modernism to North America, particularly the innovative ideals of rational and functional design developed at the Bauhaus school at Dessau, Germany between World War I and II. The exhibition features furniture from Barr's and Johnson's apartments, examples of Bauhaus graphic design, and an array of objects celebrated for their design in Barr's and Johnson's influential exhibitions at MoMA.

Anni Albers Connections

In 1984, textile designer and printmaker Anni Albers published Connections--a set of nine silkscreens that evoke pivotal moments in her prolific career, by then spanning nearly six decades. Reflecting on her life as a designer, she chose motifs for the prints based on her work from particular years: two from the 1920s, when Albers was at the Bauhaus and met her life-long partner and later husband, Josef; two from the 1940s, when the couple taught at the experimental Black Mountain College in North Carolina after having fled Nazi Germany; three from the late 1950s to the early '70s, after they resettled in Orange, Connecticut, and Josef served as Yale University's chair of the Department of Design; and two from the early 1980s, after Josef 's death. This exhibition pairs the Davis Museum's exquisite example of this silkscreen portfolio--an acquisition made in the past year--with Albers' work from each era, tracing the development of her patterns from sketches on graph paper to gouache maquettes.

Cinéphile Sundays: 1966: Only Yesterday

Produced by the mythological Studio Ghibli and directed by Hayao Miyazaki’s life-long collaborator Isao Takahata, the animated feature Only Yesterday was the highest-grossing Japanese film of 1991. It tells the story of Taeko, a young woman whose summer working in the rural countryside is interspersed with memories of 1966, when she was 10 years old and suffered from an inferiority complex. Only Yesterday is a powerful drama in which the Japanese postwar boom is set against the simple, difficult life of those who have decided to resist the temptation of relocating to the city to stay in the country and live off the land.
