Art exhibitions are rarely about Textile design, so it is refreshing to see a major show at the moment in Tate Modern that is mainly about weaving. Anni Albers was one of the most important artist of the famous Bauhaus art school.
Anni Albers was a pioneer in her field since her modern style was a breakthrough from traditional weaving. Her geometrical designs are timeless and still relevant today.
Albers was enthusiastically interested about weaving and used a lot of explorative techniques in her work. Knots were one of her research topics.
Later stages of her career Albers moved from weaving to printing.
The Tate exhibition presents nicely how wide her interest areas, influences and commissions range were.
