Films from MoMA: Josef Albers1:00 p.m.Films from MoMA: Josef Albers
Films from MoMA is a new series at CMA providing access to an unparalleled collection of rare films and videos from the Museum of Modern Art's Department of Film. Josef Albers was a notable painter, printmaker, sculptor, designer, writer and teacher. He worked from 1908 to 1913 as a schoolteacher in Bottrop and from 1913 to 1915 trained as an art teacher at the Königliche Kunstschule in Berlin, where he was exposed to many current art movements and to the work of such Old Masters as Dürer and Holbein. His figurative drawings of the next few years, which he kept hidden and which were discovered only after his death, show that he applied these influences to his consistent concern with the simplest and most effective means of communicating his subject; he drew rabbits, schoolgirls and the local landscape in as dispassionate and impersonal a manner as possible. 30 minutes.

A Conversation and Book Signing with Christopher Rothko NoonA Conversation and Book Signing with Christopher Rothko
The Columbia Museum of Art welcomes artist Mark Rothko's son, Christopher, to the Museum for a book signing and an engaging conversation with exhibition catalogue editor Dr. Brad Collins.

"Having Christopher share heartfelt insight on his father's work gives our visitors a unique and very personal connection to the artist's family," CMA Executive Director, Karen Brosius, said. "CMA visitors are responding to Christopher's involvement in the TAP multimedia tour and his introductory essay in the catalogue in a powerful way. His visit will add more depth to their CMA experience."

Christopher has lectured extensively on his father's work at museums around the world, including the National Gallery of Art, Washington; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Getty Museum, Los Angeles; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago and The Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg. He writes and edits numerous pieces on his father's artwork, prepares many of the Rothko exhibitions and was closely involved with the planning of the Rothko Centennial celebrations in Latvia and Russia in 2003. He is the editor of the book of his father's philosophical writings on art, The Artist's Reality.

"What the 1940s means above all for (Mark) Rothko is change. It is change on every level – artistic, technical, philosophical, professional, personal, attitudinal, aspirational – change so palpable it nearly bursts the seams of every canvas," Christopher said. "Rothko enters the decade a figurative painter and leaves it one of the most strikingly abstract. This is an exciting journey, for the viewer, as it was for the painter. Rothko is looking for something, looking intently, and we can search with him."

The book, The Artist's Reality, and the exhibition catalogue (in hard cover and soft cover) are available in the Museum Shop.
