The Grosvenor Gallery will be exhibiting Rasheed Araeen’s iconic geometric structures. This exhibition compliments their show of Rasheed’s figurative work at Frieze.
In these works, geometric structures in which vertical and horizontal lines are held together by a network of diagonals (like the bracing struts used to strengthen latticed engineering constructions) play on the links between Eastern and Western thought and the frameworks of social institutions and aesthetics. The first incarnations of these were created in London in the late 1960s, and have occupied the Artist throughout his career.
Unlike the mid-century miniamlist artists from the US, Rasheed has always used colour in this works, arguing that colour is what helps makes the world a beautiful place.
The exhibition also celebrates Rasheed’s monumental installation of Zero to Infinity, at Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall as part of their UNIQLO Tate Play series.
