      Wednesday, 8 May 2013 14:53

      One of the most elegant and thought-provoking exhibitions this year is Maya Lin’s Here and There.

      This world, and the world of art in particular, is so often filled with largely superfluous gestures that sometimes the best work attracts attention for displaying an economy of gesture.
