About Josef Albers
Albers and his wife, Anni Albers (1899â€“1994), took frequent trips to Latin America, with particular interest in Mexico â€“ visiting the country more than a dozen times from the 1930s to the 1960s. Albersâ€™ fascination with the visual culture of Mexico left an indelible mark on his own artistic production and methodology, with sites like TeotihuacĂˇn, ChichĂ©n Itza, Monte AlbĂˇn, and Mitla infiltrating the visual framework of his work. Included in the exhibition are rarely seen early paintings by Albers, seminal works like Homage to the Square and Variant/Adobeseries, works on paper, and a selection of rich photographic and photocollage work, many of which have never before been on view.
The museum has free general admission from 6 to 10 p.m. every First Friday except March.
