Curated by Tim Marvin
'Poetics of the Line', curated by Tim Marvin, investigates methods of defining 'the line' in contemporary artistic practice. The curatorial project will survey a decade of artistic practice that actuate critical and creative configurations of the 'line’ which derive from a continuity of political, personal and aesthetic motivations. The exhibition will evaluate the prevailing art historical and theoretical legacies that inform these approaches, reflected through the extensive and experimental methods of drawing, stitching, gathering, stapling, browsing, printing, tracing and gestural recording that have been generated upon a variety of mediums.
By examining the traditionally linear or overtly formal understanding of this elemental art form, the exhibition will arrange a receptive and continually unfolding exposition of these practices that encourages us to reconsider what a line may reveal about our world.
