Following the Alan Cristea Gallery’s recent major retrospective of Anni Albers’s prints, this presentation in the gallery’s Print Project Space includes highlights from her printmaking career.  Admired for her pioneering wall hangings and textile works, Anni Albers was also a prolific printmaker. First turning her attention to the medium in her mid-60s, she quickly started to use printmaking techniques to achieve results not possible in any other medium. 

In 1985, Albers claimed that it was her prints that finally brought her recognition, “I find that, when the work is made with threads, it’s considered a craft, when it’s on paper, it’s considered art.”

Artist ( Description ): 

Anni Albers is one of the best known textile artists of the 20th Century. In 1922 she attended the Bauhaus where she studied weaving, the only option open to women at that time, and where she later met and married Josef Albers. After the Bauhaus’s closure in 1933, they moved to America where she taught at the Black Mountain College until 1949. From 1963 she added printmaking to her primary practice as a textile designer and continued to make prints in many different media for the rest of her life. In 2018 Alan Cristea Gallery will present 'Anni Albers', a major retrospective of Anni Albers’ prints. The exhibition coincides with the Tate Modern’s first comprehensive survey of Albers’ textile works.
