‘Josef Albers in Mexico’
The Guggenheim’s new presentation of the art that emerged from Josef Albers’s numerous road trips to Mexico, writes J. Hoberman in the NYR Daily, “makes Albers’s appreciation evident, juxtaposing his studies, typically drawn on graph paper, with both his finished artwork (mostly paintings, one lithograph) and his fastidious arrangements of tiny on-site photographs. Serially organized in irregular grids, and sometimes including picture postcards, these photo-collages (never previously exhibited) appear to be Albers’s means of assimilating what he saw. By breaking down architecture and façades into basic patterns, they also provide a way to analyze his art.”
