“Lines, Grids, Stains, Words” presents drawings from the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, New York that merge the formal and compositional vocabularies of minimalism with references to the physical and bodily. While ever-present in sculpture, minimalism’s relation to the body is often difficult to discern in drawing where the tactile is often only evident as small inconsistencies that soften the anonymity of lines and grids. Beginning with works from the early 1960s, when the formal vocabularies were defined and tested, this exhibition traces the ways in which remnants of the physical can be found and follows the applications of these vocabularies in reference to the body through the present day.
