Questioning the line : Gego in context by Gego( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 175 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

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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"

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the intricate wire sculptures of the German-born Venezuelan artist 'Gego' (1912-94), lines are given new dimension, describing architectural space and engaging with the human body. Gego: Autobiography of a Line gathers key works from the artist?s oeuvre, from her famed entropic sculpture of the '70s to the works on paper created at the end of her long career. This fully illustrated publication is among the first to position Gego's work in a global context, and features texts by curator Chus Martínez, head of the Institute of Art of the FHNW Academy of Arts and Design in Basel, Switzerland; art historian Kaira Cabañas; and Gego's grandson, Daniel Crespin; as well as previously unpublished archival material. The book also includes 'GEGO's a new poem by poet, artist and composer Anne Tardos, performing a linguistic intervention in Gego's work
