Dolores Dembus Bittleman. Wall Hanging: Entrance II. 1964

Dolores Dembus Bittleman Wall Hanging: Entrance II 1964

  • MoMA, Floor 3, 3 North The Philip Johnson Galleries

In 2012, Bittleman recalled her weaving lessons with Anni Albers at Yale University: “Sitting in a white room, on white furniture near a pair of white automobile seats, we’d talk about threads and textiles and how they behaved. The important lesson I absorbed was that when you’d ‘listen’ quietly, threads would suggest what could be done with them. We ranged the world from there. . . . This instruction slowly allowed possibilities of the materials to reveal themselves to me over time.”
