This exhibition presents the work of ten artists who studied with Albers at Yale, focusing specifically on the work they produced at this time. Their work is a significant and fascinating part of Albers' legacy.
Josef Albers taught at Black Mountain College in North Carolina from 1933 to 1949. Eight years prior to that he taught at the Bauhaus in Germany. Albers joined the faculty of Yale University School of Art in 1950, serving as Chairman of the Department of Design. He would remain at Yale until retiring in 1958.
