Albers Foundation April 2015

The Albers Foundation in Connecticut USA, founded in 1971, is devoted to preserving and promoting the enduring achievements of Josef and Anni Albers, and the aesthetic and philosophical principles by which they lived.

'The Foundation maintains residence studios for select visiting artists exemplifying the seriousness of purpose that characterized both Anni and Josef Albers. No aesthetic connection to the Alberses' work is necessary; only the intention to work in a concentrated way on one's art in idyllic conditions at a remove from the art world'.

During April and May 2015 I have been invited to work in one of the Foundation's studios, where previous British artists in residence have included Ian McKeever, Michael Porter, Rebecca Salter and Ian Davenport.
