"Harmony," an exhibition inspired by the collected works of philanthropists Josef and Anni Albers and curated by Loomis Chaffee seniors Isaac Guzmán, Jason Liu, and Anh Nguyen, will be presented in the Sue and Eugene Mercy Jr. Gallery from April 25 until May 30.
The student curators' statement regarding the exhibit expresses their inspiration for the artwork they chose to include: "In a world full of chaos and disorder, it can be hard at times to find a thread that is uniting. Differences in our preconceived ideas and critical views on society have formed many divisions, gaps that we often try to forcefully bridge with violence and hatred. However, by looking at things from multiple, different perspectives, we truly appreciate not only the amazing diversity we possess but also the many similarities that join us together."
The exhibition features works in various media selected on loan from the Albers Foundation collection, including screen prints, watercolor paintings, and lithographs. Nicholas Fox Weber '65, executive director of the Albers Foundation, and Jennifer McCandless, head of the Loomis Visual Arts Department, provided guidance to the student curators in the process of selecting works and mounting the gallery exhibit.
"Harmony" is made possible through the generosity of Nicholas Fox Weber '65 and the Josef & Anni Albers Foundation.
