Lines of Thought
Parasol Unit Foundation for Contemporary Art
2/29/2012 to 5/13/2012
Tuesday - Saturday 10am - 6pm, Sunday 12 - 5pm.
This exhibition explores the work, selected from the 1960s to today, of fifteen contemporary artists who either use line in creative and challenging ways or in whose finished work line has become a prominent element.
The simple act of extending a point, predominantly by drawing with pen or pencil on paper, has paradoxically made line one of the most powerful forms of artistic expression in the history of mankind, yet over time it has taken on different meanings and uses relative to the era of its creation. Continuous or broken, curved or straight, free-floating or geometric, line can define boundaries, divide surfaces, create light and shade, and be used for communication.
