In conjunction with the Met’s current exhibition, “Max Beckmann in New York,” the Watson Library welcomes APHA-New York for a “one-night only” viewing of German Expressionist publications and other highlights of German printing, typography, and book arts from Watson’s Special Collections. Works on display will range from 16th-century artists’ manuals and books on perspective, to modern and contemporary art journals, artists’ books, exhibition catalogs, and monographs of the mid-20th/21st centuries, including by artists associated with Der Sturm, Der Blaue Reiter, and the Bauhaus.
Following the event in the Watson Library, attendees will be welcome to explore Max Beckmann in New York and other exhibitions and galleries on their own. Museum galleries remain open until 8:45 p.m. on Fridays, and all APHA members will be provided complimentary passes.
Please note that the event will commence with a brief meeting and election of new chapter officers.
