Description

A detailed retrospective of the work of Anni Albers, one of the leading artists of the Bauhaus, a pioneer of fibre art and a key figure in the Black Mountain College.

The exhibition takes us chronologically through Albers’ work - she is well-known as a pioneer of fibre art and a key figure in the redefinition of the artist as a designer. Her aesthetic repertoire was marked by the basic artistic elements (textiles and engraving, in particular) which she used to generate motifs of great subtlety and complexity.Her art, inspired by pre-Colombian culture and modern industry, was also notable for innovation in the treatment of weaving and in textile printing techniques. The show at the Guggenheim Bilbao presents a large number of 'pictorial weavings' which reveal the formal perfection of Albers’ weave and the adoption of the concerns of modern painting and abstraction in textile work.
