Sixth Annual Dulcy Miller Lecture

Barry Bergdoll, the Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at New York’s Museum of Modern (MoMA), will present “Fabricating the Bauhaus:
Historiography and Replicability,” as the sixth annual Dulcy B. Miller Lecture in Art and Art History.

The event will be hosted by the Smith College Museum of Art, on Thursday, November 20, at 7:30 p.m. in Weinstein Auditorium, Wright Hall. A reception will be held in Wright Hall immediately following the lecture, which is free and open to all; no reservations are necessary.

Bergdoll is also professor of modern architectural history at Columbia University. His interests center on modern architectural history with a particular emphasis on France and Germany since 1800. Bergdoll has organized, curated, and consulted on many landmark exhibitions of 19th- and 20th-century architecture, including “Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling” at MoMA (2008); “Mies in Berlin” at MoMA (2001), with Terence Riley; and “Breuer in Minnesota” at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (2002). He is author or editor of numerous publications, including Mies in Berlin, winner of the 2002 Philip Johnson Award of the Society of Architectural Historians and AICA Best Exhibition Award (2002); and an edited volume, Fragments: Architecture and the Unfinished (London, 2006). He served as President of the Society of Architectural Historians from 2006 to 2008.

The Miller Lecture series was established at the Smith College Museum of Art in memory of Dulcy Blume Miller, class of 1946. The fund enables the Museum to bring a leading artist or art historian to campus each year to give a public lecture and to take part in class sessions. This year’s lecture is presented in conjunction with “Bauhaus Modern,” on view at Smith College Museum of Art through December 7, 2008.
