Redefining the Line: Art Nouveau & the Female Figure features the graphic design, illustration and installation work of international contemporary artists Pomme Chan, Deanne Cheuk, Naja Conrad-Hansen, Aya Kato, Pandarosa, Marguerite Sauvage, Alberto Seveso, Sonya Suhariyan, Yoshi Tajima and Eveline Tarunadjaja.
Redefining the Line investigates the influence of historical Art Nouveau on contemporary artists and exhibits work by artists who use both traditional and digital media. Today, approximately 100 years since its development, artists continue to reference Art Nouveau in terms of the female image, the decadent curvilinear embellishments, and the influence of Japanese woodblock prints. Contemporary artists interpret these ideas by incorporating the stylistic and symbolic notions of “the line” in a way that reflects the values and style of the 21st century.
