Josephine’s Baker Past Love Has An Exhibition

French-Swiss architect Charles-Edouard Jeanneret was one of the pioneers of what is now called modern architecture. So fond of the notion of reinvention that he renamed itself Le Corbusier. The rest is history, from his impact on cities to his romance with Josephine Baker, all of which can be examined in Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes, at New York’s Museum of Modern Art (June 15-Sept. 23). It is the museum’s first comprehensive exhibition on Le Corbusier (Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, 1887-1965).
