Series IIc: Solo Exhibitions 1932–1973

The Solo and Group Exhibition subseries include catalogues, brochures, publicity, condition reports, shipment forms, work lists and notes. This subseries reveals Josef Albers's long career exhibiting his work throughout the world. Of note among the large number of exhibition files are materials relating to a major solo exhibition, "Josef Albers," organized by the Museum of Modern Art, New York, that traveled in South America, Mexico, and the United States from 1965 to 1967; and "Josef Albers at the Metropolitan Museum of Art," a retrospective of his work held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York in 1971, making Josef the first living artist to have a retrospective at the museum. Among the group exhibition files, highlights include the materials pertaining to the exhibitions "Josef and Anni Albers: Paintings, Tapestries and Woven Textiles," at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, CT in 1953 and "The Responsive Eye," at Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1965.
