'Grid' Featured in Frieze Magazine's Critic's Guide for Los Angeles

Curator Kate McNamara’s inaugural exhibition at Otis College’s Ben Maltz Gallery references the modernist interest in the grid as a map of time, movement and sound. It also showcases a number of contemporary artists who utilize it as a performative strategy.

Performing the Grid Featured in ARTFORUM

There’s nothing more satisfying than a grid, at least for those daunted by the blank page of unfettered creative freedom. But perhaps the latter is an illusion, and no attempt at creativity exists without constraint.

The sixteen artists in “Performing the Grid,” for instance, take full pleasure in being line-bound.

Performing the Grid Exhibition Featured in Argonaut

From Renaissance masterpieces to contemporary minimalist designs, the grid has been a tool artists use to organize space, time, composition and performance.

But what does it mean to perform on parallel, perpendicular and intersecting lines?

The Otis College of Art and Design exhibit “Performing the Grid” explores how various artists — conceptual artist Bruce Nauman for one, choreographer Lucinda Childs for another — have used this compositional tool to inform their creative practices.
