The Painting Center is pleased to present Re-Generation, a traveling exhibition featuring the
work of three generations of painter-teachers. This exhibition traces the regeneration of thought
in painting and art education by linking the translation of visual ideas between students and
teachers to the teaching of Josef Albers. In art education ideas move, change, get lost, and grow
from generation to generation, from teacher to student, from painter to canvas, and back again to
the training of new artists and hopefully visually literate citizens. For college-level studio art
teachers, the significance of Josef Albers on art education throughout the United States is no
mystery. Most have either taken an Albers based color theory course, given an assignment that
was somehow linked to his pedagogical strategies, or studied with a professor whose art
education was significantly impacted by Albers. While this is not the first show that features a
generational link to Albers, it is a show that reminds visitors of the wealth of painterly
knowledge that continues to grow. The show will travel to other institutions and visitors are
invited to enter their own lineage to Albers on an interactive map.
