Paul Klee and Anni Albers

March 23–August 4, 2019

Entry to this exhibition is included with general admission.

Under the tutelage of Bauhaus master Paul Klee, Anni Albers elevated the ancient art of weaving into a bold and vibrant Modernist art form. Explore linear and geometric constructions by both artists across a range of media — including weaving, painting, and drawing — in which line and the pliable plane are paramount.
