Opening Reception for Paul Klee: Philosophical Vision; From Nature to Art
September 2, 2012
Join the McMullen Museum for a special evening viewing of the latest exhibition, Paul Klee: Philosophical Vision; From Nature to Art.
This exhibition is the first to focus on the relationship between philosophy and Klee’s artistic oeuvre and to reveal the broad impact the artist has had on recent philosophical thought. It demonstrates how the artist’s groundbreaking theories of nature, words, and music developed in his writings and lectures are translated into form, line, and color in his works of art. The exhibition also reveals Klee as an astute critic of modern society, especially with regard to the impact of technology and the political failures that led to the rise of Nazism in Germany.
