Review of Anni Albers: Touching Vision at Guggenheim Museum Bilbao
Anni Albers: Touching Vision
Guggenheim Museum Bilbao
6 October 2017 – 14 January 2018
In 1949, Anni Albers (1899-1994) was the first fibre artist to have a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, followed by an extensive tour across the US.
