Josef Albers, Color Study for Homage to the Square

Josef Albers, Artist as Educator

  • This is a past program

Painter and associate professor and director of graduate studies of painting and printmaking at Yale University, Anoka Faruqee will speak of Josef Albers’s “process before product” and “practice before theory” approach to teaching. Using the acclaimed 1963 Interaction of Color as a focal point, Faruqee will expand the conversation to the conceptual underpinnings and contemporary resonance of Albers’s approach to color, drawing, and design. 

Support for programming related to Leap Before You Look: Black Mountain College 1933-1957 is provided by Catherine Glynn Benkaim and Barbara Timmer.

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from the Dream Fund at UCLA. 

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, and all Hammer members. 

The Hammer’s digital presentation of its public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.
