Isokon and the Bauhaus in Britain – Exhibition at The Aram Gallery
07/03/2019 10:00 am – 30/03/2019 6:00 pm | The Aram Gallery, 110 Drury Lane, Covent Garden, London, WC2B 5SG
To celebrate the publication of Isokon and the Bauhaus in Britain by Leyla Daybelge and Magnus Englund, The Aram Gallery will be hosting an exhibition on the Isokon building and its furniture from now until 30th March 2019.
Built in 1934, the Isokon building in Hampstead, London was England’s first modernist apartment building. Clients Jack and Molly Pritchard commissioned architect Wells Coates to design the building and explore the concept of minimal living. During the mid-1930s and 1940s the flats and bar became a hub for creatives, including Bauhaus professors Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and László Moholy-Nagy. The three produced furniture, architecture and graphic art for Jack Pritchard’s Isokon design company.
The book – which features anecdotes by Aram gallery director Zeev Aram – tells the story of the Isokon, and examines the work, artistic networks and legacy of the Bauhaus artists during their time in Britain. It is illustrated with archive photography – much of which is previously unseen – as well as documents from the Pritchard family archive.
In the year of the Bauhaus centenary, the launch and display of Isokon and the Bauhaus in Britain is a timely event for The Aram Gallery.
When: Thursday 7th March to Saturday 30th March, 10am to 6pm
Where: The Aram Gallery, 110 Drury Lane, Covent Garden, London, WC2B 5SG
