le corbusier: an atlas of modern landscapes
museum of modern art, new york
on now through september 23rd, 2013

 

 

for the first time in its history, the museum of modern art presents a comprehensive exhibition on the work of le corbusier (charles-édouard jeanneret, french, born switzerland, 1887–1965), encompassing his work as architect, interior designer, artist, city planner, writer, and photographer. le corbusier: an atlas of modern landscapes reveals the ways in which le corbusier observed and imagined landscapes throughout his career, using all the artistic mediums and techniques at his disposal, from early watercolors of italy, greece, and turkey, to sketches of india, and from photographs of his formative journeys to architectural models of his large-scale projects. all of these dimensions of his artistic process, including major paintings and four reconstructed interiors, are presented in the largest exhibition ever produced in new york of le corbusier’s protean and influential oeuvre. le corbusier: an atlas of modern landscapes draws on moma’s own collection, and substantially on exclusive loans from the paris-based le corbusier foundation. MoMA is the only u.s. venue for the exhibition, which will travel to fundació “la caixa” in barcelona (january 28–may 11, 2014), and to fundació “la caixa” in madrid (june 11–october 13, 2014).
