Join us at Tate Modern for a visit to the long overdue recognition of Albers’s pivotal contribution to modern art and design, led by Tate curator, Ann Coxon.

As a female student at the radical Bauhaus art school, Albers was discouraged from taking up certain classes. She enrolled in the weaving workshop and made textiles her key form of expression. She inspired and was inspired by her artist contemporaries, among them her teacher, Paul Klee, and her husband, Josef Albers.  This exhibition of over 350 objects illuminates the artist’s engagement with art, architecture and design and her profound influence on artists around the world.

Meet at Boiler House Ramp entrance at 9:50 for a 10am start. Charge: Patrons – free; Friends – £15; Visitors – £25. RSVP to RSVP@UKFriendsofNMWA.org
