The Bauhaus in Bristol
14 September 2019 - 25 January 2020Free
The Ken Stradling Collection, Bristol
The Ken Stradling Collection is very pleased to be taking part in the international celebrations marking the centenary of the Bauhaus.
The Bauhaus in Bristol traces the story of the remarkable friendship between Bristol furniture manufacturer Crofton Gane and Marcel Breuer, founding member of the Bauhaus in Germany and refugee. Begun in the 1930s and lasting their whole lives, it put Bristol firmly on the Modernist map. Furniture designed by Marcel Breuer and made in Bristol for Crofton Gane will be on display in the ground floor gallery alongside archive material and a model of the Breuer designed Gane’s Pavilion.
The KSC Gallery is open Wednesdays and Saturdays from 11am – 4pm during the exhibition.
Along side the exhibition we are presenting a number of exciting events which delve further into this fascinating story. Priority booking for Friends of the KSC.
