Drawing is traditionally held on a surface: it is traced with pencil, pen or brush on paper. Since the mid-twentieth century some artists began to go beyond the limits of the medium, pushing lines away from the surface and into real space. Soon after they had given autonomy to the lines, using materials such as metal wire, thread, sticks, as well as light and shadow, they began to make them move, thus adding the fourth dimension: time. In the exhibition Drawing in Space we will show works by some of the most important artists researching in this field since the 1950ies until today.
