Performing Lines



ISIA Urbino

Performative workshop

This workshop series deviced by òbelo÷ aims at testing a performative approach to visual arts education, exploring ways of experiencing graphics spatially, through the body.


Students are invited to design exercises reenacting a particular concept of line, based on the words and practice of a different artist.

The result is a multifaceted collection of replicable actions embodying a wide range of ‘line concepts’ by a growing list of authors including Pierrette Bloch, Marcel Duchamp, Adrian Frutiger, Gego, Paul Klee, Sol LeWitt, Henri Michaux and John Ruskin.
