This collection focus exhibition examines the use of grids in contemporary art and life.

Negotiating Grids highlights how artists continue a long-standing examination of the grid in art history, urban planning, and social infrastructures, in addition to more novel considerations of grids in digital space. Using the grid and related visual structures as points of departure, these eight artists collectively examine how order, power, and belonging are defined within, or outside of, these structures. All acquired within the last six years, the artworks include paintings and sculpture by Nina Chanel Abney, Jim Campbell, Timothy Curtis, Louise Fishman, Arghavan Khosravi, Isaac Tin Wei Lin, Tim McFarlane, and John Preus.
