“Josef Albers in Mexico”
November 3, 2017 - February 18, 2018
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1071 5th Ave, New York, NY 10128


Beginning in the 1930s, Josef Albers paid more than a dozen visits to Mexican archaeological sites, picking up source material for his practice. This exhibition, covering Albers’s rarely shown early paintings, photo collages, and works on paper, documents how pre-Columbian geometry and imagery subtly shaped his abstract canvases.
