OFF THE GRID: Post-Formal Conceptualism

Hosfelt Gallery presents OFF THE GRID: Post-Formal Conceptualism from April 11 to May 20,2023. A sprawling group exhibition that will trace the use of the form of the grid in contemporary art, beginning with some of its most illustrious mid-20th century proponents: Agnes Martin, Louise Nevelson, and South American geometric abstractionists Luis Tomasello, Francisco Sobrino and Antonio Asis.

From there, it examines conceptual uses of the grid from the 1970s and 80s and utilizes that history to establish a vantage point from which to explore a current resurgence in the motif among contemporary artists of wide-ranging cultural backgrounds.

Artists include Ruth Asawa, Antonio Asis, Wallace Berman, Joan Brown, Jim Campbell, María Fernanda Cardoso, Bruce Conner, Jean Conner, Richard Diebenkorn, Manuel Espinosa, Nicole Phungrasamee Fein, Michelle Grabner, Jutta Haeckel, Andrea Higgins, Birgit Jensen, Jess, Isabella Kirkland, Stefan Kürten, Alexandre Kyungu Mwilambwe, Bernard Lokai, LOT-EK, Emil Lukas, Marco Maggi, Agnes Martin, Louise Nevelson, Driss Ouadahi, Liliana Porter, Gerhard Richter, Lordy Rodriguez, Surabhi Saraf, Pablo Siquier, Francisco Sobrino, Susie Taylor, Luis Tomasello and William T. Wiley.
