Josef Albers, Color Study for Homage to the Square

Josef Albers, Artist as Educator

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.
