“Six Lines of Flights” at SFMOMA

San Francisco, 26 July 2012, Art Media Agency (AMA). The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) is organising the exhibition “Six Lines of Flights: Shifting Geographies in Contemporary Art”, which will be running from 15 September to 31 December 2012.

This way, the exhibition features the production, perspectives, and models of the six cities. The exhibition’s title was inspired by French philosophers such as Deleuze and Guattari – the latter having invented the term “ligne de fuite” (“line of flight), which refers to the different paths leading to new connections, experiences, and knowledge. “Six Lines of Flights” will bring together artists, from different horizons, established in the cultural scene of each city, while also examining the artistic energy and links created during the 21st century. The exhibition will feature artists Yto Barrada, Tiffany Chung, Wilson Diaz, Future Farmers, Adrian Ghenie, Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige, Helena Producciones, Lamia Joreige, Dinh Q.
