HOLD THE LINE
The essence of the line
As one of the fundamental elements of art, the line enables artists to depict structures, shapes and contours. The line can connect, separate or delimit. It can be strictly straight or curved, delicately winding or create a dynamic, powerful movement. It can be rigidly horizontal or vertical or meander wildly across the surface. Whether it forms an independent figure or is an abstract compositional device, the type of line defines the rational and emotional aspects of a pictorial space. The two-part exhibition “HOLD THE LINE” is dedicated to the essence of the line – the aesthetics, sensuality and radicality of simplicity.
In a further collaboration between Galerie Schenk.Modern and mim | Raum für Kultur, it brings together works by artists from two centuries.
