On Line: Drawing Through the 21st Century

The Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection loaned one artwork to MoMA’s exhibition On Line: Drawing Through the 21st Century. This exhibition examined how artists have redefined and expanded upon the traditional mediums of drawing from 1910 to 2010. On Line featured the works of over one hundred artists who broke drawing down to its core elements, making line the subject of intense exploration: as the path of a moving point or a human body in motion (the dancer tracing dynamic lines across the stage, the wandering artist tracing lines across the land), as an element in a network, and as a boundary—political, cultural, or social. Following the development of the meaning of line over the last one hundred years, the exhibition traced it in movement, across disciplines, and as it has been drawn out and rewoven in time and space—inevitably reflecting the interconnection and interdependency that are increasingly both shaping and emerging from a globalized society.
