Albers & the Bauhaus, Stephen Friedman Gallery, London

Albers & the Bauhaus at Stephen Friedman Gallery, London, will focus on the world-changing designs that emerged out of the revisionist school founded in 1919 by the architect Walter Gropius. Central to the exhibition will be work made by Josef Albers in the 1920s and 30s. Albers was a key player in the movement, joining as a student in 1920 and leaving a master in 1933, when the Bauhaus closed under pressure from the National Socialists. In the largest exhibition of Bauhaus art and design mounted by a commercial gallery, Albers & the Bauhaus will feature drawings, photographs, paintings, design pieces and glass-works by the artist alongside furniture, objects, and photographs by Marcel Breuer, the ceramicist Otto Lindig, and Marianne Brandt.

From 10 February – 12 March.
