The exhibition “Josef and Anni and Ruth and Ray” presents work that Anni and Josef Albers, Ruth Asawa, and Ray Johnson did while they were all at Black Mountain College, each working in her or his singular way but with a related playfulness and love of experimentation. Nicholas Fox Weber, who knew three of the four artists, is leading a guided tour on October 28, at 11 AM. RSVP to Hannah Chinn at hchinn@davidzwirner.com.

“Anni Albers: Notebook 1970–1980” is a beautiful facsimile showing the pencil drawings the artist made for prints. Her visual thinking—so original, and rational and playful at the same time—comes to life in these pages.

We are thrilled to announce the major monographic exhibition “Anni Albers: Touching Vision” is now on view at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. The exhibition brings together more than twenty of Albers’s weavings and wallhangings, as well as textile samples, yard materials, prints, jewelry, and drawings from over the course of her 60+ year career. Paying special attention to the connections between different periods and series, and emphasizing recurrent motifs and ideas in contrast with experimental creations, the exhibition reflects the strength of an artist whose thinking, humane and essential, had a direct influence on her time as well as on future generations of artists. We are grateful to our partners at the Guggenheim Bilbao and will be posting more images soon. In the meantime, here is “Sheep May Safely Graze” from 1958. The weaving’s metallic blue threads reflect the light in a surprising way, emphasizing the complex yet delicate structure of warp and weft. On view through January 14.
Take a peek at our Stories to catch some moments from last week’s installation process.

This beautiful vignette comes from the Kolumba Kunstmuseum in Cologne, where Josef Albers’s “Homage to the Square,” 1962, is on view in the exhibition “Pas de deux: Römisch Germanisches Kolumba,” celebrating the museum’s tenth anniversary. Taking the title from classical ballet (the “step of two”), the show considers themes such as time and space, preciousness and transcendence, and the back-and-forth between ancient, medieval, and the present. On view through August 2018.

Josef Albers was inspired by the colorful show of fall foliage at Black Mountain College near Asheville, North Carolina. He integrated the leaves into his teaching: “Collected in all varieties, in all possible shades of color—in large numbers for an easy exchange between students—they are both exciting to see and most stimulating to work with in free studies.” This leaf study by Albers is in the exhibition “Josef and Anni and Ruth and Ray,” which explores the aesthetic and personal dialogue between Josef Albers, Anni Albers, Ruth Asawa, and Ray Johnson, all of whom were at Black Mountain College in the late 1940s. On view at David Zwirner Gallery, 34 East 69th Street, New York, through October 28.

Josef Albers made “Gate” in 1936 at Black Mountain College, three years after he and Anni left the Bauhaus and their homeland Germany due to pressure from the Nazi regime. The painting is featured in “Artists in Exile: Expressions of Loss and Hope.” The exhibition takes an innovative approach to the theme of exile, considering artists who left their country of birth, or their adopted home, for a variety of reasons—including discrimination, war, and genocide—from the 19th century to the present day. On view at the Yale University Art Gallery through December 31.
