Freeing the Line
This publication accompanied the show of the same name exhibited at Marian Goodman Gallery in 2006 and curated by Catherine de Zegher. The exhibition considered the departure of the line from the paper surface and its venture into space, and juxtaposed drawings made without paper (as Gego titled them) and instead with wire and thread by artists in the late sixties and early seventies with contemporary drawings. Artists included in the exhibition were Gego, Eva Hesse, Karel Malich, Richard Tuttle, Julie Mehretu, Monika Grzymala, Ranjani Shettar, and Joelle Tuerlinckx.
