Saul Steinberg (New York, USA)
The hallmark of Saul Steinberg’s art is the inked line, always drawn with a spare elegance that expresses the semiotic richness of the line itself. As it shifts meaning from one passage to the next, Steinberg’s line comments on its own transformative nature.
The Line, the original a 10-meter-long drawing with 29 panels that unfold, accordion fashion, is Steinberg’s manifesto about the conceptual possibilities of the line and the artist who gives them life. His drawing hand begins and ends the sequence, as the simple horizontal line that hand creates metamorphoses into, among other things, a water line, laundry line, railroad track, sidewalk, arithmetic division line, or table edge; near the end, the curlicues etched by the iceskater’s blade remind us of the role calligraphy plays in Steinberg’s art.
The Line was designed for the Children’s Labyrinth, a spiraling, trefoil wall structure at 10th Triennial of Milan, a design and architecture fair that opened in August 1954. The drawing, photographically enlarged and incised into the wall, was one of four Steinberg conceptions used on the labyrinth.

A photographic dialogue
"Unidentified Modern City": under this title lies a unique collaboration between Gabriele Basilico and Dan Graham around the city of Brescia, commissioned by gallerist Massimo Minini. The publication attempts to translate the dialogue between the Italian photographer and the American Conceptual artist into book form. It is accompanied by a discussion between the two protagonists and an essay by Maurizio Bortolotti. Never-before-seen images and a cutting-edge design make this publication, printed in a limited edition, a collector's item.
