Bard Graduate Center – Until Jul 07, 2024 New York (US)


Sonia Delaunay was one of the most influential French artists of the twentieth century. Her remarkably diverse and interconnected body of work focused on the primacy of color and a synthesis of the arts. Painter, artisan, and designer, she embraced modernity and harnessed the creative power of collaboration in the realms of fashion, textiles, interiors, books, mosaics, and tapestries. Living Art comprises more than 200 objects secured from major international lenders, reflecting Delaunay’s kaleidoscopic output through all periods of her career from the early Parisian avant-garde of the 1910s to the spirited 1970s. Exploring the materiality, making, and marketing of her work, the exhibition traces a lifetime of creative expression and presents an innovator who transcended conventional artistic boundaries and devotedly lived her art.


A vertically-oriented collage of torn and cut pieces of paper of different shapes and colors, overlapping and filling the page. There are two curving stripes on the upper left of red and black and yellow, and another curving band on the top left almost in the shape of a letter C. To its right a letter H is written in black pencil or crayon, but partially covered by a piece of light pink paper on the top of it.
