Zarina in "Marking Time: Process in Minimal Abstraction"

Marking Time: Process in Minimal Abstraction is an exhibition presented at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and will feature Zarina’s pin drawings, a twenty-part series of works on paper currently in the museum’s collection.


What unites the artists featured in Marking Time is not necessarily a shared belief in what art should accomplish or express. Rather, the works on display reveal the artists’ implicit trust in viewers’ capacity to put themselves in the artist’s position as they consider the object in front of them. Whether characterized by interlocking brushstrokes, a pencil moved through wet paint, or a pin repeatedly pushed through paper, the works make visible the ways in which they were produced, allowing for an intimate understanding of the duration, intensity, and rhythm that each required.
