You’re likely familiar with Man Ray’s photography, but have you ever come across his paintings, collages or films? True, he achieved worldwide renown for his portraits of artists and his rayographs of the 1920s, produced without the use of a camera. However, Man Ray also painted, drew, designed, made films and objects, wrote, invested his talents enthusiastically in typography, book and magazine design, and pursued a career as experimental fashion photographer for Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue. An exhibition in Bank Austria Kunstforum places focus on these lesser known aspects of Ray’s oeuvre via more than 150 works – for sure an unmissable chance to marvel at the artist’s experimental and groundbreaking archive.

With sections covering art, design, fashion and the growth of consumer culture, the exhibition provides a fascinating insight into the appetite for change and a lavish feast of visual inspiration.
