Questioning the line : Gego in context by Gego ( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the late 1950s until the 1980s, the German-born Venezuelan artist Gego (Gertrud Goldschmidt) made drawings, prints, three-dimensional works, hanging-net pieces (reticulareas), and wire constructions (drawings without paper) of extraordinary quality. Taken as a whole, these works illustrate the issue at the core of her production: the liberation of line from volume and form into space. Though little known outside of Latin America, Gego's work enjoyed a dialogue with twentieth-century artists and movements active not only in Venezuela, but also worldwide. In a series of essays examining her art in relation to Modernism, Informalism, kinetic art, and other tendencies, this volume--the second in the MFAH International Center for the Arts of the Americas series--situates Gego in her international context

Las obras expuestas reflejan la evolución artística de Gego (Gertrud Goldschmidt): compuestas fundamentalmente de líneas e intersecciones en el espacio, sus esculturas organizan y dan movimiento al espacio a la vez que definen y enmarcan el vacío, que la artista utiliza como materia modeladora del espacio, que actúa como elemento activo. Líneas, redes y mallas, las esculturas de Gego se despliegan en forma de estructuras geométricas que van dando paso a formas orgánicas

"Gego (1912-1994) pioneered a new direction in art with her innovative sculptures of the 1960s and 1970s. Born in Germany as Gertrud Goldschmidt, she fled the Nazi regime and moved to Caracas, Venezuela, where she absorbed modernist trends but ultimately forged her own artistic path. Exploring the concept of the line, space, and time, she linked pieces of metal to create weblike geometric forms, which she called "drawings in space." These experiments culminated in Reticulárea, a massive netlike sculptural installation first presented at the Museo de Bellas Artes, Caracas, in 1969. This groundbreaking work had major repercussions in the art world and marked a turning point in Gego's career. Centered on the various iterations of this work and its artistic impact, this anthology ... published on the one-hundredth anniversary of Gego's birth ... brings together images as well as documentary materials and primary texts in English and Spanish by artists, writers, and Gego" This bilingual anthology of a broad range of writings focusing on the German-born, Venezuelan artist Gego's masterpiece Reticulárea (1969) critically considers the influential role of this seminal work and its variants in her oeuvre, as well as in late 20th-century and early 21st-century artistic thought and practice."
