Summary
Anni Albers (1899-1994) was a textile designer, weaver, writer and printmaker, who was among the leading pioneers of 20th-century modernism. Throughout her fruitful career she inspired a reconsideration of fabrics, both in their functional roles and as wall hangings, truly establishing thread and weaving as a valid medium for art. In her later years, Albers took up print-making, translating many of her persistent themes and ideas into two-dimensional form. But while Albers has been extremely influential for younger generations of artists and designers, her contribution to modernist art history has, until now, been rather overlooked. In 2018, a groundbreaking exhibition presents Albers's most important works to fully explore and redefine her contribution to 20th-century art and design, and highlight Albers's significance as an artist in her own right, rather than alongside her husband Josef
