Dana Hargrove has been included in the latest Imago Mundi Luciano Benetton Collection- Myth/Reality, representing 140 Contemporary Artists from Scotland. The catalog can be purchased at their online store and features texts by Luciano Benetton, Guja Mabellini, Layla Rose and Alix Rothnie.
Dana Hargrove is now participating in the curatorial project Geoform.net.
Geoform is an online scholarly resource and curatorial project whose focus is the use of geometric form and structure in contemporary abstract art being made by artists from around the world.
Geoform explores, documents and celebrates the rich diversity of style and aesthetic intent that characterizes this broad vein of contemporary non-objective abstraction. Such diversity attests to the profound resonance that geometric form and structure have had for people across time and place.
Geoform is edited by Julie Karabenick (juliekarabenick.com). It has been online since May, 2005.
