Craft in America Center is pleased to present an exhibition that explores the ongoing legacy of Anni Albers through the work of ten contemporary American artists and designers working with textiles who are strongly influenced by Albers. Material Meaning: A Living Legacy of Anni Albers includes work by artists Samantha Bittman, Lois Bryant, Christy Matson, Jennifer Moore, Brittany Wittman McLaughlin, Rachel Snack, Susie Taylor, Cameron Taylor-Brown, Suzanne Tick, and Marcia Weiss.
The artists’ artwork, woven prototypes, experiments, and functional woven textiles mirror Albers’ varied design practice. This exhibition is only a taste of Albers’ impact given the broad and deep nature of her career. It explores Albers’ continued importance as interpreted by a group of current practitioners in the fields of art, handweaving, education, and textile design. This exhibition coincides with and celebrates the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus, where Albers studied and later taught. As a teacher, Albers helped establish a pedagogy that many of these artists use today. In fact, some of the artists will be giving workshops at the Center during the run of the exhibition.
Reception: July 13, 2019 at 4pm - RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
