Otto Nebel and His Contemporaries
― Chagall, Kandinsky, Klee

Sat. October 7 - Sun. December 17, 2017
* 10/17 & 11/14 closed

It all began at Bauhaus!

The painter Otto Nebel (1892–1973), who spent his artistic career in Switzerland and Germany, met Kandinsky, Klee and others at Bauhaus during a stay in Weimar in the mid-1920s, and forged long-lasting friendships with them. This year, Bunkamura is holding the first-ever retrospective of Nebel’s work in Japan, with full backing from the Otto Nebel Foundation in Bern. The exhibition traces the themes central to Nebel’s oeuvre—architecture, drama, music, the abstract, the Middle East and so on—supplementing the artist’s own works with those of his contemporaries such as Klee, Kandinsky and Chagall. The aim is to shed light on the process by which Nebel sought to establish his own brand of art, incorporating and experimenting with style after style. With a view to the approaching centenary of Bauhaus’s foundation in 2019, this retrospective showcases Nebel’s underappreciated artistic achievements, beginning with the painter’s early experiences at Bauhaus, and following along his career that was devoted to exploration of materials and textures.
