John Ros, 2018-19, typed page, variant series, 8.5″x11″.
Opening Reception: Friday, January 18 from 7pm to 9pm

__lineation__ is the first exhibition in DCAC’s 30th anniversary year.

John Ros reacts to the thirty-year history of DCAC’s main gallery by creating a site-specific, subtle installation of line-work in order to help visitors become more aware of their surroundings. Ros’ aesthetic, both clean and deliberate, exposes a need to make visible through form and line that which is easily overlooked. __lineation__ is an intervention that in its simplicity and directness encourages contemplation.
