About the Book
The Working Title brings together different perspectives on abstraction in conversation with each other. Minimalism, post-modern, geometric, gestural, formal, color filed, video and process-driven works occupying the same room, creating unpredictable relationships through contrasting approaches.
Having direct access to technology has become an important tool for artists to share and discuss their practice, making connections on a regional and global level. The collective stance and attitudes on making art are less defensive than they used to be, opening up conversations with the past by seeking out and elaborating on previous approaches that may have been marginalized or forgotten.
The Working Title is less about seizing the moment, but more of a selection of current voices that use abstraction as a starting point to create work that expands the trajectory of what is possible.
This exhibition was organized by Progress Report, a visually-driven project that offers a glimpse of the creative process that share various perspectives from the working artist's point of view.
Progress Report is an visually-driven project dedicated to artist features, studio visits and is intended as a general curatorial resource for ourselves and others. Progress Report aims to allow the categories of art-making to fall by the wayside by presenting a glimpse of the creative process that offer various perspectives with open-ended possibilities from the working artist’s point of view.
