A new exhibit sponsored by the Yale School of Art featuring Josef Albers‘ teaching and artistic methods will be on view from September 8 – November 28. The exhibit titled “Search Versus Re-Search: Josef Albers, Artist and Educator” is being curated by Anoka Faruqee, director of graduate studies and associate professor of painting and printmaking at the Yale School of Art. To compliment the exhibit, Prof. Faruqee plans to use the Interaction of Color iPad app on three Bass Library iPads to display Albers’ work in a digital, interactive dimension for visitors. It should be noted that Prof. Faruqee is no stranger to the app, as she had her students use Interaction of Color with a set of Bass Library iPad Airs for her fall 2014 ART 516 course, Color Space.
“Search Versus Re-Search: Josef Albers, Artist and Educator” is free and open to the public from noon to 6 p.m., Tuesdays through Sundays. The exhibition opening reception, also free and open to the public, will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 15 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Yale School of Art’s 32 Edgewood Avenue Gallery in New Haven.
