“The Border” by Frederick Goldstein, featured in Illinois Gallery Exhibit

“Borders and Boundaries Redefined”

The Art Center Highland Park sought artists exploring how we define space, whether the literal borders in art, or the arbitrary lines delineating physical spaces such as states and countries, or the symbolic boundaries that separate self from others. The selected artwork reflects the openness of stretching beyond the confines and constrictions that often come with ‘staying in the lines’.

The impact of arbitrary lines, whether they be geographical or artistic, affect our politics and communities. They also can symbolize the boundaries of self and other. While, some artists prefer to draw in the lines, others defy the boundaries imposed by surface or space. This powerful exhibition builds on the ability of artists to take liberty in drawing their own lines, building their own borders that redefine and expand on traditional expectations.
