Josef Albers (1888-1976) visited Mexico with his wife Anni in the winter of 1935-36, they knew they were in a "country for art like no other." The couple returned to Mexico thirteen times by the late 1960's, developing a passion for pre-Columbian art and architecture that would influence Josef's abstract painting and prints and fuel his innovative approach in photography. His encounters with the ruins of Mexico advanced his experiments in abstract art. This exhibition covers this period of his exploration in depth.
