Presented as a part of the Avery 90 series, a yearlong suite of programs celebrating the 90th anniversary of the Avery Memorial building, join Martino Stierli, Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, as he defines and examines the development of the International Style, its emphasis on open space and repetition, and its rejection of ornamentation. Stierli positions the Wadsworth’s Avery Memorial Building, the first American museum interior constructed in the International Style, within the context and trajectory of the movement. Explore the architecture and artwork on view in the Avery building before the lecture. Reservations are encouraged.
