The Anni Albers Weaving Studio

The Albers Foundation is planning a new initiative to honor the legacy of Anni Albers through a program of artist and scholar residencies, dedicated scholarship, and educational initiatives for both specialists and the interested public. The goals of the Anni Albers Weaving Studio will be to deepen understanding of the art and influence of Anni Albers, develop innovative approaches to textiles, and advance the role of weaving and textiles in the future of art and architecture internationally. By connecting material and intellectual resources and fostering interdisciplinary dialogue among practitioners and scholars, the Anni Albers Weaving Studio will become a think tank for how art and design can provide leadership on pressing questions in aesthetics, education, and the future of sustainable textiles.
