A Beautiful Confluence: Anni and Josef Albers and the Latin American World
Texts by Nicholas Fox Weber, Sara Franco, Petró Kohut, Nicholas Marang, Carolina Orsini, Jennifer Reynolds-Kaye, and Jordi Soler. Chronology by Jessica Csoma
A Beautiful Confluence presents the art of the twentieth-century masters, Anni and Josef Albers, in tandem with the pre-Columbian objects they collected from the time they moved to America in 1933 until Josef's death in 1976. In fourteen trips to Mexico and other countries in Central and South America, they discovered that "Art is everywhere." With little money, the couple amassed an important collection, and the exchange between what they bought and their own work became powerful. This beautifully illustrated exhibition catalogue features essays from a range of perspectives and reveals the similar visual and artistic interests of Anni and Josef and the Latin American world that became their haven.
