Gego, Between Transparency and the Invisible explores the intriguing relationship between line and light in the work of the Venezuelan artist Gego (Gertrude Goldschmidt, 1912-1994). The exhibition will trace Gego’s interest in “mak[ing] visible the invisible” from a rarely seen series of monotypes of the early 1950s to her delicate drawings without paper and tejeduras (woven paper pieces) of the late 1970s-1980s. Juxtaposing important artworks produced from the mid-1950s to the late 1980s and bringing two bodies of Gego’s work into dialogue for the first time, Gego, Between Transparency and the Visible, will foreground the critical role that drawing and printmaking played in the artist’s oeuvre. Curated by Mari Carmen Ramirez, curator of Latin American art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
