Heather James Fine Art, Josef Albers: The Heart of Painting, 12 May–30 November 2022


Josef Albers: The Heart of Painting is a special exhibition that focuses on the artist's investigation of color through the structure of the square. The presentation puts into perspective Albers's emphasis on reading color and how to read paintings. At Black Mountain College, when asked by a student what he would teach, Albers responded, “To open eyes.” This same principle can be applied to his most famous series of paintings Homage to the Square.
