A new abstraction from Brooklyn and beyond at the Gowanus Ballroom.
Rule is a rule until broken. Borrowed Paths, Broken Rules seeks the locus of abstract art today, and finds it on the periphery. Artists straddle once clear lines, experimenting through gesture, testing surface, pushing the boundaries of form. We find the abstract where we may not expect to, sprouting in the beds of other isms. From diverse histories, artists plot new paths, mapping abstraction’s journey.
