Josef Albers: Bauhaus in Mexico

Image coming soon.

J. Hoberman reviews Josef Albers in Mexico at the Guggenheim Museum, New York, on view through March 28, 2018.

Hoberman writes that the exhibition “makes Albers’s appreciation [of Mexico] evident, juxtaposing his studies, typically drawn on graph paper, with both his finished artwork (mostly paintings, one lithograph) and his fastidious arrangements of tiny on-site photographs. Serially organized in irregular grids, and sometimes including picture postcards, these photo-collages (never previously exhibited) appear to be Albers’s means of assimilating what he saw. By breaking down architecture and façades into basic patterns, they also provide a way to analyze his art. “
