Name-dropping marathon with nonagenarian artist and designer Barbara Stauffacher Solomon, a.k.a. Bobbie
Man Ray, Steve McQueen, Henry Miller, Luchita Hurtado, Armin Hoffman, Sibyl Moholy-Nagy, Vito Acconci…over the course of a career spanning eight decades, Barbara Stauffacher Solomon has rubbed shoulders with some of the legendary figures of 21st Century art and design. For the next instalment in our regular series of talks, join the pioneering nonagenarian artist, designer and writer for a ‘name-dropping marathon’ in conversation with Curator Matylda Krzykowski and von Bartha’s Director Stefan. Get your dose of oral history as Solomon shares her experiences meeting, working, and socialising with the great and good of the art and design world. Based in San Francisco, Solomon is best known as a leading figure in the large-scale architectural ‘supergraphics’ movement, in particular her work at Sea Ranch, a private estate with a utopian vision in Sonoma County, California. GROP, an exhibition of over 40 drawings and paintings by the artist from the 1980s to 2021 is currently on show at von Bartha’s Basel space.
