Josef Albers - An Exhibition of Silk-Screen Prints

I have only just heard about this exhibition, which is currently on at the Island Arts Centre in Lisburn

Albers, along with Klee and Kandinsky, were key members of the Bauhaus Movement.. Although this School is mostly remembered for its artists and designers, its most successful workshops were actually the Textile workshops.

Albers wife, Anni, is still one of the most influential Textile Artists of all time. More info on the textile workshops can be found in the excellent book, Bauhaus Textiles.

Anyone interested in textiles, colour and theory would be well advised to check out this exhibition. any if you are lucky enough to go, why not let us know how it was!!
