Albers Color Workshop: Perception Through Iteration


In a workshop led by Fritz Horstman, Artist Residency and Education Coordinator at The Josef & Anni Albers Foundation, we will explore the influence of Josef Albers’ color theory on artists included in Drawing Dialogues: The Sol LeWitt Collection. The German-born artist Josef Albers is remembered for his work as an educator at the Bauhaus, Black Mountain College, and Yale University and for his book Interaction of Color, a foundational text on color and perception.

Please join us Thursday, July 14 for the opening reception of Gabriel de la Mora: Sound Inscriptions on Fabric and Open Sessions 7 .


The event is FREE and open to the public.


In the Main Gallery, The Drawing Center will present Gabriel de la Mora: Sound Inscriptions on Fabric, an installation of fifty-five pairs of found speaker screens. Each screen is imprinted with an inscription created by the dust and air that circulated through the speaker during its life, recording the cadence of countless voices, advertisements, news broadcasts, soap operas, football games, and music, as well as noise, interference, and silence.


In The Lab, Open Sessions 7 gives an opportunity for selected artists to find new approaches for contextualizing and exhibiting their work, through exhibitions, public programs, and conversation. The artists selected for Open Sessions may or may not draw as their primary means of art-making. The two-year program engages musicians, architects, dancers, poets—anyone who is interested in expanding the boundaries of drawing.
