Anni Albers: In Thread and On Paper
February 11, 2024 - June 30, 2024
Blanton Museum of Art:
The University of Texas at Austin
200 E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
Austin, TX 78712

The University of Texas institution gathers mid- to late-career prints, weavings, and functional objects from the final 40 years of the late luminary’s life. Though Albers had sought to study painting at the Bauhaus, it was her experience in the school’s weaving program that fueled her dedication to abstraction—a cornerstone of both her textile and printmaking practices. Viewers can expect to see a melange of Albers’s wall hangings, rugs, and other textiles, along with her prints and the commercial and functional objects they went on to inform. The show’s centerpiece is, arguably, not even something she created: the artist’s own loom.
