Anni Albers

11 Oct - 27 Jan 2019 / Tate Modern, Bankside, London, GB

Until the end of January London's Tate Modern is shining a light on German textile artist Anni Albers. The first UK retrospective of her work features 350 objects from the Bauhaus student-turned-teacher, from small-scale pictorial weavings to large wall-hangings, prints and drawings. As a female student at the radical Bauhaus art school, Albers was discouraged from taking up certain classes. She enrolled in the weaving workshop and made textiles her key form of expression. She inspired and was inspired by her artist contemporaries, among them her teacher, Paul Klee, and her husband, Josef Albers.
