After three years of intensive collaboration with artist Matthew Ritchie, architects Aranda\Lasch and structural designers from Arup AGU, Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (T-B A21) is proud to inaugurate The Morning Line at the 3rd Bienal Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo de Sevilla (Biacs) curated by Peter Weibel, with co-curators Marie-Ange Brayer and Wonil Rhee. The exhibition is entitled Youniverse and is dedicated to the convergence of art, science and technology. The Morning Line is the corner stone of this biennial, its elegantly provocative 8 meter high and 20 meter long frame, built of 17 tons of coated aluminum is an intersection for information from various fields, such as art, music, architecture, engineering, mathematics, physics, cosmology and technology. Voted among the 100 innovators for the new millennium by Time magazine, Ritchie is genuinely interested in an interdisciplinary approach of art that draws its inspirations from many sources. This book is a memory for the inauguration of this piece, it contains photographs, interviews and other material regarding the project.
