Reflex Bauhaus. 40 Objects–5 Conversations marks the hundredth anniversary of the Bauhaus, featuring important Bauhaus objects in dialog with contemporary art. In 1925, the year Die Neue Sammlung was established, the Bauhaus left Weimar for Dessau. Die Neue Sammlung was one of the first museums to acquire contemporary Bauhaus works that are today considered icons of modern design. Pieces from this period include textiles by Anni Albers and Gunta Stölzl, toys by Alma Buscher and Ludwig Hirschfeld-Mack, and works in metal by Otto Rittweger and Wilhelm Wagenfeld. Further acquisitions were made until recently, adding important works to the collection of historical objects, many of which are on view for first time.

Weaving beyond the Bauhaus traces the diffusion of Bauhaus artists, or Bauhäusler, such as Anni Albers and Marli Ehrman, and their reciprocal relationships with fellow artists and students across America. Through their ties to arts education institutions, including Black Mountain College, the Institute of Design, the Illinois Institute of Technology, and Yale University, these artists shared their knowledge and experiences with contemporary and successive generations of artists, including Sheila Hicks, Else Regensteiner, Ethel Stein, Lenore Tawney, and Claire Zeisler, shaping the landscape of American art in the process.

Bauhaus Transfers: Albers/Rauschenberg explores the relationship between the two artists, the dissemination of Bauhaus ideas, and the legacy of the Bauhaus in America. Albers, a student and then instructor at the Bauhaus, fled Nazi Germany for the United States after the school was forced to close in 1933. Albers took a post as head of Black Mountain College, a new art school in North Carolina, and became a formative educator for many artists. Robert Rauschenberg attended Black Mountain in 1948–49 and considered Albers "the most important teacher" he ever had.

In a Cloud, in a Wall, in a Chair: Six Modernists in Mexico at Midcentury brings together for the first time an exceptional body of art and design by Clara Porset, Lola Álvarez Bravo, Cynthia Sargent, Anni Albers, Ruth Asawa, and Sheila Hicks, who were each encouraged to develop work that was a reflection of and contributed greatly to the rich artistic landscape of Mexico at this time. Through furniture, drawings, textiles, sculptures, and photomontages, some rarely exhibited before or brought together in this way, this exhibition is a unique opportunity to further understand the fertile artistic environment of Mexico during this period.

Points de Rencontres is the result of the first season of the Centre Pompidou's Accelerations Endowment Fund. The exhibition presents seven works destined to enter the collection of the Pompidou, made by seven artists in residence in partner companies.

Emotion is a common theme, from laughter to tears, from love to hate.
