“Josef Albers en Amerique” is currently on at the Pompidou Centre in Paris, France. The exhibition brings together around 80 works and traces the artistic journey foreshadowing the “Homage to the Square” series, starting with his early works on paper. It is the first time that such a large number of pieces have been exhibited in Europe and contains many rarely exhibited pieces.
There are two additional rooms of the show which look at Albers’ influence on his students, many of whom were pioneering Op Artist themselves, including Kennth Noland, Richard Anuszkiewicz, Eva Hesse and Robert Rauschenberg.
The exhibition runs until the 30th April 2012. If you are anywhere near Paris, I would highly recommend that you pay the exhibition a visit.
