Tracing the remarkable career of the artist, designer, writer, and teacher Anni Albers (1899-1994), Work With Materials features over 100 drawings, prints, textile samples, commercial fabrics, and rugs from the collection of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation. With a focus primarily on the extraordinarily productive and varied second half of her long career, the exhibition illuminates her ability to move easily between her work as both an artist and as a designer of functional materials.
Explore the newly reinstalled permanent collection galleries, which include rarely seen artworks from the museum’s collection and two major loans from the Art Bridges Foundation. This thematic installation touches on ideas of identity, place, gender, race, labor, and lineage.
The second iteration of The Art Wall Project features the sculptures made by Stephanie H. Shih. Best known for her ceramic groceries, Shih’s work explores ideas of home and nostalgiathrough the lens of food.
