Abstract:

For artist and teacher Josef Albers, color was the most interesting and most malleable material in art. His approach to it in the studio was rigorous and thorough, and over sixty years expanded into painting, glass, printmaking, and more. His 1963 book The Interaction of Color is one of the best-selling art books of all time, and sets forth an outline of how he guided students to their own discoveries about color. This lecture will move through some of the main events in Albers's life in Germany and the United States, while connecting his studio and classroom practices.
