The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents New Objectivity: Modern German Art in the Weimar Republic, 1919–1933 (October 4, 2015–January 18, 2016), the first comprehensive show in Italy and the United States to explore the themes that characterize the dominant artistic trends of the Weimar Republic. Organized in association with the Museo Correr in Venice, Italy, this exhibition features approximately 200 paintings, photographs, drawings, and prints by more than 50 artists, many of whom are little known in the United States. Key figures—Otto Dix, George Grosz, Christian Schad, August Sander, and Max Beckmann—whose heterogeneous careers are essential to understanding 20th German modernism, are presented together with lesser known artists, including Herbert Ploberger, Hans Finsler, Georg Schrimpf, Heinrich Maria Davringhausen, Carl Grossberg, and Aenne Biermann, among others. Special attention is devoted to the juxtaposition of painting and photography, offering the rare opportunity to examine both the similarities and differences between the movement’s diverse media. New Objectivity debuts at Museo Correr (May 1–August 30, 2015), where it will be on view during the Venice Biennale before traveling to LACMA in an expanded format this Fall. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated, scholarly catalogue available in both English and Italian editions.
