In a sequence of drawings from the mid-1990s, the Catalan artist Perejaume (b. 1957) visualizes the migration of art movements across geographical and political borders. In doing so, the artist offers visual forms for intangible journeys through time and space. In sharp contrast to earlier concepts of the development of art, from Vasari’s cyclical model of rise and fall to Alfred H. Barr’s linear ‘Development of Cubism and Abstract Art’, Perejaume’s drawings offer a less definitive, more suggestive, visualization of the migration of art movements. By locating his drawings in specific landscapes, the artist gives a sense of the complex spatial relations between art and place. Within his wider practice, Perejaume crosses many borders. Artist, poet, writer and performer, he works in an extensive range of styles and mediums. This paper explores Perejaume’s representations of the migration of art movements, proposing them as alternative visual and conceptual models for the shape of art history. View Full-Text
