Lombard-Freid Projects presents Out of Line, an exhibition that brings together drawings by six international artists. The title of the show is not simply a reference to formal linear qualities, but rather is meant to evoke the transgressive spirit that pervades the practice of the artists represented in the exhibition. In addition to works by gallery artists Dan Perjovschi, Michael Rakowitz, Tala Madani and Mounir Fatmi - Out of Line premiers works by Claire Harvey and Nathaniel Mellors both of whom will have their first solo show at Lombard-Freid this spring.
Dan Perjovschi is best known for his insightful social and political commentaries in the form of ephemeral wall drawings. For this show, pages from his original notebook, All American Book, made while in the US for an exhibition at the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis, will be projected directly onto the gallery wall. Each page of drawings succeeds in being as humorous and satirical regarding the state of American politics as it is empathetic and profound.
