Emerging from a potent and ancient cross-pollination of math, weaving, and the wetware of perception, the psychological and practical application of the grid as a tool for creative expression has fueled extraordinary and imaginative solutions. The exhibition surveys and celebrates the use of the grid as a structural component, a design element, and a game in the creation of artworks. The grid is embedded everywhere in our global environment and our culture, both in and on our bodies: the quilts under which we dream; the LEGOs in the toy chest; the blasted screens in our pockets that contain our lives, and the ones where we annihilate each other over and over in game-play and where we watch ourselves do the same thing IRL on the news every night. This exhibit of 60 artists and nearly 100 objects focuses on the influence of the grid in the work of emerging and mid career artists alongside historic works, ephemera, and household objects and incorporates, painting, sculpture, textiles, video, photography, collage, interactive work, installation, site-specific work, toys, and sound.
