Anastasi- What Is A Line?

What is a Line?
April 24 - August 2, 2015

Curated by Jennifer Farrell, Former Curator of Exhibitions and Rebecca Schoenthal, Interim Curator, with William Auten, Digital Resources Specialist, and Lauren Patton, Docent Coordinator

Whether gestural or restrained, thick or thin, simple or complex, found or created, lines have taken various forms in modern and contemporary art. Inspired by the artist Paul Klee's statement that "a line is a dot that went for a walk," this exhibition, one of the Fralin’s upcoming shows for summer 2015, will examine the diverse ways 20th- and 21st-century artists have used lines—both found and created—in their art.

Cavaliers Collect
August 28 - December 20, 2015

Curated by Bruce Boucher, Director

A celebration of The Fralin’s 80th anniversary in 2015, Cavaliers Collect will consist of loans from U.Va. alumni with distinguished art collections as well as works that reflect the broad range of The Fralin’s own collections. Featuring a variety of genres from Asian to contemporary art, we hope the exhibition will capture the artistic interests of U.Va. alumni, faculty, parents, and friends of the Museum.
