Conference: “Anni Albers and the Modernist Textile”

This two-day conference will bring together scholars from academic institutions in the United Kingdom, the United States, Chile, Mexico, and Europe to discuss the critical significance of textiles within the modernist project. Focusing on the work of the 20th-century weaver Anni Albers (1899–1994), the conference aims to examine the afterlife of a Bauhaus weaving aesthetic as it was transformed across transnational networks of dialogue and dissemination. The conference also coincides with the end of the major Anni Albers retrospective at Tate Modern (closing at the end of January 2019) and with the centenary of the Bauhaus (1919–2019).
