JOSEF ALBERS: ‘FORMULATION: ARTICULATION, 1972,’ through May 8. This headlong plunge into all things Josef Albers (1888-1976) presents a portfolio of 127 silk-screens that sums up his art and thought to a remarkable degree — especially if you read the “Statements of Content” explaining each motif. A horizontal installation aids absorption, which can transform your understanding of both Albers in particular and abstraction in general, revealing it to be, unexpectedly, an art of everyday life.
