The Wolfsonian–Florida International University

The Wolfsonian–FIU inspires people to think about the power of art, design, and everyday objects in shaping the past, present, and future.

During the week of Design Miami/ The Wolfsonian will offer:

Postcards of the Wiener Werkstätte: Selections from the Leonard A. Lauder Collection, organized by the Neue Galerie New York, explores a selection of “artists’ postcards” from 1907 to 1919 made by the Wiener Werkstätte(Vienna Workshop), a cooperative for artists and artisans founded in 1903 by architect Josef Hoffman and designer Koloman Moser. The exhibition complements this extraordinary selection of approximately three hundred postcards with holdings from The Wolfsonian’s collection, including Wiener Werkstätte textiles, decorative arts, and printed materials.

Through new works of video, audio, photography, and text rooted in The Wolfsonian’s extensive collection of materials depicting work and working figures, Esther Shalev-Gerz: Describing Labor interrogates our relationship to the labor that forges the physical world. Internationally recognized for projects that address the most pressing challenges of collective memory, political identity, and historical space, Shalev-Gerz conceived Describing Labor following her 2011 residency at The Wolfsonian.

Also on view is Art and Design in the Modern Age: Selections from The Wolfsonian Collection.

Free admission for Design Miami/ VIP cardholders.
