This sprawling group exhibition will trace the use of the form of the grid in contemporary art, beginning with some of its most illustrious mid-20th century proponents: Agnes Martin, Louise Nevelson, and South American geometric abstractionists Luis Tomasello, Francisco Sobrino and Antonio Asis. From there, it examines conceptual uses of the grid from the 1970s and 80s and utilizes that history to establish a vantage point from which to explore a current resurgence in the motif among contemporary artists of wide-ranging cultural backgrounds.
