After the Diagram
Opening April 26th from 6-8 pm
- Additional Information -
The diagram collapses the dichotomy between representation and abstraction: it always has ties to the real, and it is always abstract. "After the Diagram" is an examination of various ways in which contemporary artists and architects involve disparate strategies to detonate the conventions of the diagram itself. Representing only a few critical assaults on traditional notions of the diagram, questioning of new and tentative modes of creation and definition of artistic production in the wake of representational security is brought to bare. The subtitles for the exhibitions are far from rigid categories as much of the work featured in the exhibition operate under many of the posited strategies. In this way, the exhibition is conceptually framed in a Venn diagrammatic fashion.
