Between the Lines: Gego as Printmaker  
Amon Carter Museum - Between the Lines:Gego as Printmaker
Exhibition: February 7, 2017 - August 6, 2017
From zigzags and curves to diagonals and scribbles, this small exhibition of prints by abstract artist Gego (1912–1994) celebrates the vibrant diversity of line. While primarily known as a kinetic sculptor, Gego explored the printing process's potential for creating intricate linear patterns while working at the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles in 1966. Drawn from the Amon 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."
