Between the Lines: Gego as Printmaker

February 7–August 6, 2017
First floor

From zigzags and curves to diagonals and scribbles, this intimate exhibition of prints by abstract artist Gego celebrates the vibrant diversity of line. While primarily known as a kinetic sculptor, Gego explored the printing process for its potential to create intricate linear patterns while working at the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles in 1966.

Drawn from the Carter’s collection, these richly saturated lithographs reflect Gego’s interest in the intersection between line and space. Her choice of dramatic blacks and reds, contrasted with the lightly colored paper sheet, highlights the images generated by negative space, or what Gego called “the nothing between the lines.”
