Essays by Brenda Danilowitz and T'ai Smith
In 1967, noted architects Ricardo Legorreta and Luis Barragán commissioned Anni Albers to create a work for the newly built Hotel Camino Real in Mexico City. Completed in 1968, her striking wall hanging Camino Real is heavily influenced by Latin American art and culture. Showcasing Albers's approach to working with textiles as a "many-sided practice," it is accompanied in this book by examples of Albers's innovative wall hangings, weavings, and a range of works on paper.
Published on the occasion of the Anni Albers exhibition presented at David Zwirner, New York, in 2019, this catalogue features new scholarship from the show's curator, Brenda Danilowitz, art historian and chief curator of The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation; and T'ai Smith, an expert on Bauhaus craft and weaving.
