A new exhibition organized by the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation — In Thread and On Paper: Anni Albers in Connecticut — will be on view at the New Britain Museum of American Art through June 14.
Known for her pioneering graphic wall hangings, weavings, and designs, Anni Albers (1899-1994) is considered the most important textile artist of the 20th century. Curated by Fritz Horstman, the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, In Thread and On Paper will explore the groundbreaking work and writing Albers produced in Connecticut from the 1950s through the end of her life, and will include an extensive body of textiles, wall hangings, commercial collaborations, and works on paper for such landmark properties as the Glass House.
