The son of Nathaniel Pousette, a painter, art director, educator, and art writer, and Flora Louise Dart, a poet and musician, Pousette-Dart was raised in an environment surrounded by music, poetry, and the visual arts, and began drawing and painting by the age of eight. In , he forged a close friendship with John Graham, whose writings were closely aligned with his own interests in spiritual concerns and so-called primitive art. Throughout the s, Pousette-Dart was most entranced by the work of Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, whose abstract sculptures, drawings, and forms in brass greatly informed the orientation of the young American artist.

Open Sessions continues with artist-directed group exhibitions. Amadeo Azar explores the interrelation between the visual languages of modernism with political and social movements in Latin America, and the way those Utopian moments were disrupted as they encountered local circumstances. Daniel Barroca works with memory and history. His projects map forces anchored by images, objects, words, historical figures, and ideas. Lea Cetera produces temporal installations that examine the mediation of technology and the alienation of the human body. Youmna Chlala investigates architecture and fate.
Her work is situated in places or bodies that translate themselves against or through an external world that is constantly trying to name them. Alexandra Lerman proposes clay as a discursive medium. Her ink circulation drawings and "memory negatives" use copyrighted and patented systems to explore the complexities of contemporary body language and refer to the body located within institutional and natural environments.
Harold Mendez draws upon ideas of absence and displacement to reference reconstructions of place and identity in the United States and Latin America, with a focus on how the past manifests in the present, and thereby trigger new inquiry. Marcelo Moscheta excavates the memories inscribed in the stone paths left by the ancient civilizations and uses GPS coordinates to draw his displacement over the surface of the planet. Ronny Quevedo traces culture through history, language, and mapping.
Using a variety of forms from personal anecdotes to colloquialisms, coats of arms to store signage, games to modules, his work addresses concepts of displacement.

Yuri Masnyj makes drawings and sculptures that investigate how the self is registered in our compulsion to collect, compose, and display objects.
Laura Morrison thinks of her work as publishing. In writing and gallery-based forms, she examines the awkward clashes between what it means to be vulnerable and what it means to be accountable. Catya Plate uses sculpture, drawing, and animated film to explore how the creation of a new mythology may help address contemporary manifestations of anxiety and angst.

The Open Sessions program continues with its fourth artist-directed group exhibition. In Drawing Waves , South African—born, German-based artist Robin Rhode will exhibit his signature, stop-action photographs in which he draws in public streets and then a performer interacts with the inscribed image in a new photographic sequence entitled, Breaking Waves , , which whimsically depicts a young boy surfing in the sea.
Rhode will partner with a group of children aged years to create this large-scale mural of the high seas, which will be video recorded and on view. He begins the process by attaching vinyl cutouts of seventeenth century mercantile ships to the gallery wall, and then invites the children to freely draw the surrounding body of water using giant, custom-made oil crayons. Yet as a participatory artwork, Rhode offers a more hopeful message by bringing urban youth culture to the fore and demonstrating the power of pure imagination.
Special thanks to Allison and Larry Berg. Initiated in , Open Sessions is a new program at The Drawing Center through which a large group of artists consider their relationship to drawing as medium, process, and metaphor. Working together over a two-year period, Open Sessions artists participate in ongoing studio visits and discussions, punctuated by small group exhibitions at The Drawing Center, as well as other self-organized shows in New York and abroad.
Name It by Trying to Name It: Open Sessions includes all artists in the program, giving the first floor of the museum over to an exploration of contemporary drawing, encompassing performance, video, sculpture, and installation, as well as traditional drawing forms. The show's numerous collaborations, in which ideas and materials are shared, emphasize the medium's flexibility and process-oriented nature. The exhibition will evolve over its six-week run, as some artworks enter and exit in two-week cycles, while others remain constant throughout the show's run.
Taken as a whole, Name It by Trying to Name It presents a window into nearly two years of thinking about drawing. Part 1: Billy Martin For the Wandering performance series in July of , Martin has invited world-renowned musicians to interpret and perform his graphic scores and automatic drawings.

Drawing Sound will continue September 11—13, , when String Noise will present a three-night event featuring different performers at The Drawing Center. See details here. A virtuoso painter and draftswoman, Frank is unique among her peers in her willingness to employ the traditional mediums of painting and drawing in the service of taboo themes.
At The Drawing Center, Frank applies her visual and psychological acumen to that most evocative and misunderstood of literary forms, the fairytale—specifically the original, unsanitized stories transcribed by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm between and Only a few contemporary artists have worked within the fairytale genre; fewer still have systematically interrogated the complexity of these tales and the way in which they address social and sexual mores that continue to have relevance today.
Natalie Frank: The Brothers Grimm presents twenty-five drawings out of a total of seventy-five that Frank completed over a period of three-and-a-half years between and The drawings are made in gouache and chalk pastel—the first time that Frank has worked exclusively in this medium—producing both gritty and luminous surface effects. Engaging the intersection between body and mind, reality and fiction, the series can be seen as a contemporary feminist reimagining of a symbolist legacy.

Eviner uses repetitive, hypnotically shifting scenes to explore contemporary feminism at the crossroads of the East and West, as well as broader historical narratives and notions of the body and performance.
Unfolding in a warehouse that is under construction, the film presents fragmented scenes in which gender-ambiguous figures, whose faces are obscured by mysterious drawings, dance, struggle, and chase one another before an endlessly rotating camera. In this video the state of drawing in her practice takes on new dimensions. Drawings demand to be free. They want to tear themselves from the paper. Jacob Ferdinand Voet, Portrait de femme vue de face , , Colored pencil on blue paper. Please click here for details of how you can participate. This exhibition explores four hundred years of portrait drawings, emphasizing work from live models.
Forty portraits have been chosen from the Beaux-Arts de Paris' collection based on diverse criteria such as the male and female gestures, caricature, frontal gaze, social class, and profession of the model. The remaining thirty-six portraits in the exhibition will be hung on the gallery's back wall and will be visible to the visitor throughout the exhibition's run.

This unique exhibition will explore the notion of drawn portraiture and provide alternative readings of this important genre of art making within a contemporary context. The selection of works is extensive, ranging from seventeenth-century to the present. Highlights include never-before-exhibited drawings by nineteenth-century luminaries Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres and Charles Garnier to the work of modern and contemporary masters Henri Matisse and Georg Baselitz to portraits by recent graduates of the Beaux-Arts de Paris.

But the virtuoso draftsman—who was born in Alsace, France, in , and who currently resides in a remote part of Ireland near Cork—is much more than this. Ungerer also made graphic erotic drawings throughout his career. That Ungerer is not as well known in America today as he is in Europe is largely due to his self-imposed exile c. The Drawing Center exhibition is the first career retrospective in the United States dedicated to this extraordinary artist.
Curated by Claire Gilman, Curator. Schawinsky played a key role in the school's vital social life and was a member of the Bauhaus Band. He studied graphic design and experimental photography and was also deeply engaged in the Bauhaus's theater workshop as an actor, set and costume designer, creator of performances, and teacher.
The exhibition focuses on two bodies of work Schawinsky made between and , Faces of War and the Head Drawings. The former are man-machine hybrids that could represent either an aggressive enemy or a powerful avenger—or perhaps an identity that encompasses both. The Faces of War break from the utopian optimism of the early Bauhaus and reveal the existential struggle of an artist coping with identity and the devastation of war.

New work including a collaborative film on fairy tales and politics; an installation under the stairs; a stack of posters in envelopes, ready to be mailed; a comic book for reconciliation; drawings of movie cameras, and of films; Morse code messages; and other new work.
Many Worlds is a collaborative folio project developed by Matt Neff and Adam Shecter, consisting of an edition of prints from each artist in Open Sessions 2. At The Drawing Center, visitors are invited to fill out an address label in the gallery and a print will be mailed to the address of their choosing. Each print is sealed into an envelope printed with fragments of the editioned images. Sharma loves this friend very much, who nevertheless has an extraordinary talent for making their relationship unbearably painful. Everything is steeped in messianism, melancholia and black carbon dust.
The inventor, Le Prince, mysteriously vanished shortly before his creation was unveiled to the public. Correspondingly, drawn images of the films Ugetsu Monogatari - 96 minutes and The Woman in the Dunes emerge from the surreal experiences of characters in each film after they depart from their daily existences. Together the drawings evoke disappearances in real and fictional stories. Matt Neff's Untitled is made from a discarded incubator that takes on the abstracted sculptural image of a lifeless form on the ground, flooded by the muddled lights of both the police and the community's protests, and is a reflection of the ongoing struggle in Ferguson, Missouri.
Untitled is visually inspired by Neff's Cage Variation toner drawings, which he began several years ago and has continued to revisit through drawing, print, and now sculpture. Scary Stories is an evolving archive of oral and visual narratives recorded and edited by artists Tatiana Istomina and Joey Fauerso. With plans to expand the archive by recording in multiple locations nationally and internationally, Scary Stories fosters conversations between individuals and larger communities on the definitions and incarnations of fear, and creates the basis for mutual empathy and understanding through the fundamental acts of drawing and storytelling.
Open Sessions 2 presents a selection of short films based on the stories and drawings recorded by Fauerso and Istomina in San Antonio and New York. The artists will be working in a recording room at the back of the gallery throughout the show, conducting interviews with visitors to the museum and documenting their stories and drawings. To sign up for an interview, please email artists at participate scarystoriesproject. It has been built intuitively, without a plan, using a language of experimental architecture inspired by Lebbeus Woods, whose drawings were exhibited by The Drawing Center in Loper will draw the built form from observation at set times during the exhibition, leaving the drawings behind as part of the installation.

Ink on rice paper, 19 x 18 inches. Sari Dienes is the first museum show ever devoted to the artist.
Her transfer drawings of subway grates, sidewalks, and manhole covers produced images that were at once abstract patterns and highly recognizable subjects. Dienes placed drawing at the center of her practice while simultaneously challenging traditionally held views about the medium. These drawings had a profound formal, technical, and iconographic impact on a young generation of artists, including Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns.
While widely exhibited and well—received at the time of its creation, her work has been largely overlooked in recent decades. This exhibition highlights her practice and sheds new light on her legacy. Brochure Read Sari Dienes Lab gallery brochure. The exhibition will provide The Drawing Center with a unique opportunity to explore the relationship between visual art—specifically drawing—and commercial filmmaking. Curated by Brett Littman and Nova Benway.
The Intuitionists is a collaborative artist project inspired by Colson Whitehead's novel of the same name—a work of speculative fiction that explores the relationships between progress, technology, and difference. The exhibition considers how the collection, the database, and the aggregate serve as complementary models for the organization of information and objects in flux. Each item in the exhibition is hung according to the sequence determined by Whitehead's text. The Lab gallery features a collaboration by Hart, Jemison, and Valentine, also inspired by their chosen paragraph from the novel, using its words and letters to form an interpretive drawing.
Paul Chiappe, Untitled 48 , Pencil on paper. Collection Lea Weingarten. This group exhibition features a selection of international contemporary artists who adopt an intimate format to explore issues related to visual perception, personal and historical memory, the construction of gender stereotypes, and the power of the imagination. In an age when cavernous galleries and outsized images and objects suggest that bigger is necessarily better, working small carries a certain risk.
It is a risk, however, that the nine artists in the exhibition are willing to take as they create minute worlds that absorb the viewer while resisting possession. The selected works range from graphite photo-realist renderings to interventions in found objects to site-specific installations, including a custom-made tabletop bearing microscopic figurations and a postage-stamp-sized watercolor inserted directly into the gallery wall.
The artists in Small. Image: Paul Chiappe, Untitled 48 , Working mostly, but not exclusively, with pencil on paper, Woods has created an oeuvre of complex worlds—at times abstract and at times explicit—that present shifts, cycles, repetitions within the built environment. His timeless architecture is not in a particular style or in response to a singular moment in the field; rather, it offers an opportunity to consider how built forms impact the individual and the collective, and reflect contemporary political, social and ideological conditions, and how one person contributes to the development and mutation of the built world.
Lebbeus Woods, Architect brings together works from the past forty years by one of the most influential designers working in architecture. Beyond architects, he has been hailed by designers, filmmakers, writers, and artists as a significant voice in recent history, his works resonate across many disciplines for their conceptual depth, imaginative breadth, lasting beauty and ethical potency.
The exhibition centers on transformation as a recurring theme, providing a framework for understanding the experimental nature of the work. Special thanks to the Estate of Lebbeus Woods. In New York Lye is now well known for his animated experimental films. The exhibtion will include a selection of paintings, drawings, and photograms, never before seen in the United States.

Andrea Bowers and Suzanne Lacy: Drawing Lessons will consist of drawing lessons provided by Bowers over the course of nine days as a platform for conversations; resultant drawings; video projection; and the installation of the lesson environment—lights, platform, drawing easels, etc.
As they work together under scrutiny of the audience, Bowers and Lacy will explore in work and conversation questions they engage with in their practices in general. For example: what are the roles and problematics of representation in public practice art? How do artists reconcile activist and field-based practices with the necessities of production for gallery and museum? What is the relationship between second and third wave Feminism? What is the role of venue, object, and style in the identification, historification, and evaluation of art?
As this is an intensive and actual attempt to teach Lacy to draw, lessons will last four hours per day with drawing practice in between sessions for a total of six hours per day. If you are interested in bringing a group to observe the performance, please contact Kate Robinson, our Visitor Services Manager, at krobinson drawingcenter. For this exhibition we will offer a ticket to visitors allowing free return visits to the performance.

FIVE The Drawing Center is a multimedia performance that highlights the art of vogue, a dance form characterized by angular and linear body movements inspired by the stylized poses of high fashion models on the catwalk and in the pages of magazines.
New York-based vogue dancers and musicians, including renowned opera singer, Stefanos Koroneos, and distinguished Vogue Commentator, Kevin Jz Prodigy, will perform and be conducted by Newsome. In addition to the evening performance, video documentation from FIVE ARTHK , originally performed at the Hong Kong International Art Fair, will be exhibited as well as five multi-colored, line drawings produced using motion-tracking software from that performance.

For the past decade, artist Deborah Grant has interwoven historical accounts and personal experiences with references to contemporary political and social issues in her ongoing series Random Select. Grant culls material from a variety of sources including magazine photographs, comic books, published texts, and art historical reference books which she masterfully translates and brings together via her signature drawing method to create highly personal, non-linear narratives that investigate politics, race, and cultural identity.

His complex body of work positions the medium as both a philosophical tool—used to organize and convey knowledge, meaning, and signification-—as well as a physical object—used to synthesize over twenty years of innovation in the kitchen.
Hundreds of notebooks have been filled with concepts, ideas, collaged photographs, and loose sketches for new dishes for elBulli. More straightforward creative methods in the form of lists, tables of ingredients, and cooking methods have also been used to synthesize ingredients and conceptualize new ways of cooking. The use of drawing to articulate cuisine as both a product and a concept is indicative of a creative model that is always in flux.

Although Walser, who was born shortly before Dickinson died, was most likely unaware of her work, both writers were obsessively private as well as peculiarly attentive to the visuality of their texts.
Walser wrote in tiny, inscrutable script on narrow strips of paper using an antiquated German alphabet that was long considered indecipherable. Similarly, Dickinson fitted her multifarious poetic fragments to carefully torn pieces of envelope or stationery, which were discovered among her posthumous papers.
In both cases, the form of these texts affects the language itself as both writers crafted their words in response to the form at hand. Rarely in literature has the manner in which words are made been so integral to the way in which they might be read. PRESS The New York Times review "Together, the two exhibitions prompt mind-stretching reflection on the complicated relations between writing, communication and reality.
This exhibition is organized simultaneously with Marking Language at Drawing Room, London October 10—December 14, and a joint publication will be produced. This show features an international group of artists spanning the s to today, all of whom are engaged in exploring the relationship between drawing and writing as distinct yet interrelated gestures.
Paradoxically, language became a favored tool in this effort as artists such as Dan Graham, Mel Bochner, and Hanne Darboven manipulated the written text in an effort to evacuate predictable meaning and uncover the materiality of language. The exhibition catalogue is made possible by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Colombia. Christine Nichols. William Engelen 's latest works, Falten [Folds], is an exhibition of a new series of musical scores for percussion by the Berlin-based artist.
Falten [Folds] build musical compositions from folded paper. At the start of each composition, Engelen draws a time line on a sheet of paper. Each centimeter of paper corresponds to one second in the score. The artist shapes the paper into three-dimensional forms—ovals, cones, or even knots. He then hand-draws a staff notation on the sections of the paper that are not hidden in the folds. Through this structure of creases and lines, Engelen organizes, through both intention and chance, the elements of sound and silence in each piece.
The landscape of the paper determines the music that can be made from it. The lines on the page and resultant folds manifest the score as an intricate drawing. Falten for Percussion consists of eight parts, and will be debuted by the celebrated percussion ensemble Talujon. Curated by Nova Benway. Talujon performs: Thursday, November 21, pm during our Opening Reception. No admission fee. Image: Sean Scully, Change 7 detail , Germany, and contemporary choreographer Luca Veggetti b.

Sketched onto the floor will be an expansive web of chalk lines made by Hefuna her largest work to date in advance of an audience; its dramatic creation captured by film.
The performance culminates in a dynamic display of swooping whorls made by their distilled movements across the floor. The effect is its own form of choreographic documentation. This exhibition marks the first survey of drawings by Ken Price, an artist best known for his sculptural work. Booth, and Sara Szold. The show will feature over 80 works in drawing, painting, film, theater design, and illustration, dating from the s to the mids, decades during which the artist formulated a unique response to a developing commercial culture.

Creating what he can with what is immediately available to him, Uriarte converts the information, skills, and objects encountered in the workplace into explorations of plane geometry and pure abstraction.
His drawings, at turns bold and subtle, improvised and predetermined, occupy a zone somewhere between the febrile forces of the imagination and the stultifying culture of office life.

Color is always rooted in a particular place, and form manifests the self. In these animated and live action shorts, drawing takes place atop, from within, and while travelling through diverse landscapes: urban and natural, as well as public and private. While some films in this presentation use drawing as a means of recording the ever-changing landscape, others present creative responses to specific physical or environmental conditions. In all instances, drawing serves as a means of connecting its practitioners to a dynamic world.
This exhibition will present the plates as primary art objects without preparatory drawings or the resultant prints. Established in , the Istituto Nazionale per la Grafica is the result of a merger between the Gabinetto Nazionale delle Stampe and the Calcografia Nazionale.

Lakra b. For this exhibition, Lakra will create a site-specific wall drawing throughout the gallery, integrating works on paper. In this presentation, Lakra uses drawing as the most immediate artistic impulse to invoke fundamental human urges like sex and violence. Using a range of source material, from anatomy textbooks to magazine pin-ups and comic strips, Lakra looks to Mexican and international art historical traditions, as well as the contemporary iconography of tattoo art and borrows a rich sense of satire from his early interest in cartooning.
Creating a transformative visual overload, Lakra merges representation with an invented universe, as works transcend categorization and challenge social norms.

SmartSpaces exhibition in the windows of Lafayette Street between Broome and Kenmare Reception: Thursday, December 9, pm This exhibition investigates the variety of approaches to animated drawing in contemporary art, featuring recent work from a selection of internationally recognized mid-career and emerging artists. With hand-drawn images as the foundation of all of the selected work, some artists play directly with the medium of drawing as both technique and the material object, while others use a more whimsical bent, creating imaginative narratives alongside attending visuals.
In all the films being screened, the artists explore the relationship between our surroundings, human culture, and identity, ranging from quick gestures to more elaborate, descriptive narratives. Working with curators and arts organizations, SmartSpaces facilitates artistic interventions at the borders of public and private space, transforming empty properties into temporary public art venues, with information and tools that engage and inform the public.

Selections Spring Sea Mar ks is comprised of works by Agnes Barley, Jerome Marshak, and Peter Matthews, three artists selected from the Viewing Program who notate, describe, and interpret aspects of the sea. The exhibition examines the capacity of drawing to represent something as dynamic, volatile, and vast as the ocean. All three artists in Sea Marks use distinctly different interpretive strategies that yield a range of unexpected results; in fact, one may not immediately recognize the sea in any of their works.
While staying within the material bounds of traditional drawing, the works expand our understanding of how drawing acts as a descriptive system and means of interpretation.

Since the end of the s, he has also conducted performances and created drawings while under hypnosis as a means to explore the nature of behavior.

Image: Rirkrit Tiravanija, untitled demonstration no. Smith Company, c. Using her chosen medium of oil stick on paper, the artist deploys a sparse, tense, and energetic line to make drawings that are at turns comic, perverse, poignant, and brutal. Henderson works with the radio on, the sounds of talking pundits and news stories filtering through her onto the page where ambiguous scenarios offer playful or possibly sinister interactions.
By offering disquieting representations of patterns of human behavior, her work asks us to consider our own complicity in and capacity for violence as well as benevolence. Curated by Nina Katchadourian. Image: Kathleen Henderson, Hole , This exhibition explores the pivotal role drawing played in the interdisciplinary and multifaceted work of Austro-American designer, artist, theoretician, and architect, Frederick Kiesler Frederick Kiesler: Co-Realities will trace Kiesler's interest in the expressive and conceptual possibilities of drawing through key projects and concepts from the s to the s, from his early work as a scenic designer to his revolutionary designs for Peggy Guggenheim's Art of the Century Gallery, and his decades long investigation into the unique structure of his Endless House.
As so few of Kiesler's installations, sets, or projects remain or were ever realized, the drawings have become key to understanding his significant contribution to 20th century thought. Philip Johnson called Kiesler "the best-known non-building architect of our time.
The exhibition will present works spanning from the late s to the present and will highlight an overlooked facet of experimental film. Many of the works to be exhibited are seminal films in the history of the genre—including Len Lye's A Colour Box and Norman McLaren's Blinkity Blank —while other, more contemporary works are being screened for the first time.
By showcasing films from over seven decades, Drawing on Film will present an overview of the rich legacy of direct film. The exhibition will transform the Drawing Room into a screening room with a program of films by eleven artists that will screen multiple times each day. In addition, individual installations, one by Jennifer Reeves and one by Jennifer West, will run for one week each. Tuesday, July 8 — Saturday, July 12 daily Jennifer West, Popped Cherry Film 16mm film leader stained with cherry juice, popped with hole puncher , , min. Music composed and performed by Anthony Burr.
For the past 60 years, Arslan has been mining the depths of the unconscious mind, bringing together Western and Eastern aesthetics and philosophy in finely wrought works that he calls Artures. Serial in format, the hundreds of drawings he has produced deal with subjects as varied as schizophrenia and the eroticism of de Sade, Bataille, and Artaud, as well as visual interpretations of artists, poets, writers, scientists, musicians, and philosophers that have influenced his thinking.
Though Arslan has exhibited extensively in Europe and is well-known in Turkey, this exhibition in the Drawing Room, curated by Executive Director Brett Littman, will be the first survey of his work in the United States. Photo by Cengiz Tacer. Drawing Out is an annual exhibition of student artwork from the Drawing Connections Education Program, which places teaching artists in downtown public schools.
Spring Selections will mark the first exhibition curated with the use of The Drawing Center's newly established online Artist Registry. Selections exhibitions are a cornerstone of The Drawing Center's exhibition program and a key component of the Viewing Program. Selections Spring celebrates the 92nd Selections exhibition in the Center's ongoing series that presents new work by underrepresented and emerging artists. Sterling Ruby addresses notions of violence, repression and social control through a diverse artistic practice, incorporating sculpture, video, photography, drawing, collage and installation.
Image: Sterling Ruby, Prison detail , Alan Saret: Gang Drawings marks the first major museum exhibition of Saret's work in 17 years. Saret was a vital part of the Soho alternative art scene in the late s and 70s, as well as an important figure in the history of process art and post-minimal art. Organized in close collaboration with Saret himself, the exhibition will feature never before seen work drawn from the artist's own archive. Non-Declarative Art explores ambiguity and the rejection of overt meaning in the work of thirteen emerging artists selected from the Viewing Program.
The exhibition presents drawing-based work that ranges from pointed to trivial in subject matter, from perfection in craft to studied clumsiness. Gego, Between Transparency and the Invisible explores the intriguing relationship between line and light in the work of the Venezuelan artist Gego Gertrud Goldschmidt, Juxtaposing important artworks produced from the mids to the late s and bringing two bodies of Gego's work into dialogue for the first time, Gego, Between Transparency and the Invisible , will foreground the critical role that drawing and printmaking played in the artist's oeuvre.
Buy the catalogue: Gego: Between Transparency and the Invisible. For this exhibition in the Drawing Room, the artist William Anastasi will recreate seminal site-specific works dating from the mids. These early pieces are a testament to the artist's interest and pioneering efforts in site-specific projects, as well as in the medium of drawing. The artworks incisively explore the nature and behavior of drawing in the gallery space through different strategies, bringing to the surface questions about site and medium specificity, materiality, and the dematerialization of the art object.
By focusing on the artist's expansive approach to the medium, the exhibition aims to contribute to a much deserved critical reconsideration of Anastasi's oeuvre. Drawing Out is an annual exhibition of student artwork from the Drawing Connections education program, which places teaching artists in downtown public schools.
Visionary architect and artist Yona Friedman is one of the most important and influential figures working in the fields of sustainable and self-initiated architecture. Utilizing simple, everyday materials, Friedman will create an installation in the Drawing Room in collaboration with Normal Architecture Office that foregrounds his concerns with flexible, utilitarian, and portable design.
Levity: Selections Spring explores lightness as both a material and metaphoric condition in the work of fourteen emerging artists selected from the Viewing Program. Levity presents drawings made using a variety of methods and materials—including light itself—to investigate transparency, highlight a humorous view of mundane objects and situations, or compose whimsical and joyful imagery.
Despite early success and a long teaching career at Cornell University, Eleanore Mikus seems to have largely been missed by history. A progression of images begun with a single dot in space, the complete series of thousands of drawings evolves through gradual movement, each drawing in the sequence referring to the preceding one. While strictly non-referential, the drawings evoke cosmic imagery — swirling clouds, clusters of planets, wave patterns — and have been numbered as years, celebrating two millennia. Common Destination: Selections Fall features twelve emerging artists selected from the Viewing Program.
The artists in Common Destination explore the fictions, histories, and futures of geopolitics through an expansive approach to drawing. The exhibition will run concurrently in the main gallery and the Drawing Room at 40 Wooster. Their playful images are generated from wishes requested via webcam from passersby in Barcelona, London, Stockholm, Shanghai, Tokyo, and New York City.

Eva Hesse Drawing is the first exhibition in over 20 years to focus on the role of drawing in the achievements of Eva Hesse , one of the most influential artists of the postwar era. Image: Eva Hesse, no title, New York artist Stephen Posen will present an ambitious new drawing installation that explores scale, color, and the quality of line, engaging the walls, ceiling, and floor of the space, as well as the street outside it, with a circular trace of movement that has spatial, metaphorical, and poetic resonances. Drawing Out will present cross-disciplinary group projects by students from four participating schools: P.
Analog Animation will highlight a wide array of inventive animated works presented in a continuous projected loop and four site-specific installations. This collaborative of emerging artists took over the Drawing Room with large-scale drawings that grew throughout the space and changed with performance and natural decay as the artists playfully explored the process of structures that become established and then deteriorate over time.
Thirty years after the fall of Saigon, Persistent Vestiges brought together work by Vietnamese and American artists dating from the war-era and the present day. Hand-printing on the gallery walls by Nancy Spero and collages by Martha Rosler were in dialogue with photo-based mixed media work by Dinh Q. Persistent Vestiges juxtaposed the work of artists from different generations who approach the subject of the war from various perspectives.
The exhibition continued in the Drawing Room. The artists in LineAge explored the genealogy of the drawn line in terms of formal development, biographical content, or demarcations of identity. The acclaimed Trinidadian artist Peter Minshall works in the medium of mas , the costumed performance portion of Carnival. This exhibition of hundreds of small sketches conveyed the artist's intensive cumulative process of preparatory drawing as he envisions a full troupe of costumed performers in motion.
Minshall has created scenarios for dozens of performances with hundreds of people, including Carnival and the closing ceremonies for the Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia Rather than creating murals or using the wall as a super-canvas, these artists delved into the function of the wall and its symbolic value.
Whether making subtle graphite marks, bold drywall cut-outs, huge gestural lines, or digital media projections, all of the artists played with ideas of illusionism, transparency, depth, and materiality of the wall as it both supports and becomes their artwork. Through diverse approaches, the artists in Wall-to-Wall Drawing deconstructed the surface of the museum wall and developed complex relationships between the wall and the message of their work. This exhibition presented two- and three-dimensional works on paper by the under-recognized New York-based artist Zoe Keramea b.
Through the use of deceptively simple motifs—lines, knots, and geometrical shapes—Keramea produces "drawings" that unfold conceptually from a flat plane or sometimes emerge three-dimensionally in paper constructions. The exhibition reflected Keramea's sense of delight in visual challenges, and she invited viewers to involve themselves in the mental "unfolding" of the work. Participating schools are: P.
Nasreen Mohamedi: Lines among Lines presented the contemplative abstract drawings and photographs of the under-recognized Indian artist Nasreen Mohamedi Mohamedi's spare drawings were informed by ideas of modernity and by the geometry of Islamic architecture. The exhibition featured thirty of the artist's fine-line drawings created from the early s to the late s, as well as fifteen of her black-and-white photographs.
The exhibition highlighted the exchange between drawing and photography throughout Mohamedi's work. In both media, the artist reduced structures and spaces to patterns of diagonals and planes.
