July 01–August 31 Humlebæk, Denmark Josef Albers (1888-1976) is the second artist in the series of small exhibitions with the heading Louisiana – on paper, focusing on prints and drawings. The presentation of Josef Albers is something of a sensation, featuring a whole series of works that have never been shown before. In other words, a new side of an old acquaintance for visitors to Louisiana can be experienced in the exhibition. Albers was a designer in the Bauhaus stable and is well known for his abstract paintings – his ‘squares’. But what he himself called his “obsession with color” led him from 1940 on to a number of experiments with color on paper, where he investigated color and abstract form in sketches and more finished works on a smaller scale. The exhibition has been created in collaboration with Josef Albers Museum Quadrat, Bottrop, in Germany. Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is one of the venues on a major tour that also includes the Gulbenkian in Portugal and the Morgan Library in New York.
