Note Published on the occasion of Anni Albers held at David Zwirner, New York, September 10-October 19, 2019.
Summary The first in-depth study of a monumental wall hanging-rediscovered after many years-by renowned Bauhaus artist Anni Albers. Albers was influential in elevating textiles from craft to fine art. Her exquisite wall hanging Camino Real-seen for the first time outside of Mexico City at David Zwirner, New York, in 2019, and the subject of this book-is a superb example of this modern master's work. In 1967, noted architects Ricardo Legorreta and Luis Barragan commissioned Albers to create a work for the newly built Hotel Camino Real in Mexico City. Completed in 1968, her striking wall hanging Camino Real is heavily influenced by Latin American art and culture. Showcasing Albers's approach to working with textiles as a "many-sided practice," it is accompanied in this book by works Albers made following her move to the United States in 1933, including innovative wall hangings, weavings, and a range of works on paper. Together, these works reflect Albers's brilliant embrace of different materials and techniques and her ability to work at varied scales. The works in this publication offer additional context and motifs, demonstrating the artist's pioneering investment in textiles as an art form and her parallel interest in mass-produced designs. Published on the occasion of the Anni Albers exhibition presented at David Zwirner, New York, in 2019, this catalogue features new scholarship from the show's curator, Brenda Danilowitz, art historian and chief curator of The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, and T'ai Smith, an expert on Bauhaus craft and weaving.
