About

A Line Can Go Anywhere is a group exhibition curated by Jenelle Porter, surveying work by Bay Area artists from the 1950s to the present who use linear pliable materials; string, wire, thread, and rope. Crisscrossing generations, nationalities, processes, and approaches, the works speak to the cultural forces and art discourses that have contributed to a rich legacy of art making, from the initial efflorescence of the fiber revolution of the 1960s to fiber’s recent reclamation by contemporary artists who use fiber-based materials to create works with a “post-fiber” sensibility. Included in the exhibition are works by Trude Guermonprez, Alexandra Jacopetti Hart, Josh Faught, Terri Friedman, Ruth Laskey, Ed Rossbach, and Kay Sekimachi.
