Viewing Program 20/21 is a new initiative that offers sixty artists mentorship in the form of studio visits and portfolio reviews by The Drawing Center's curatorial team. Esteban del Valle and Julia Kissina are two participating artists whose drawings are featured here. Read the artists' descriptions about their drawings below:

"During the early days of the pandemic, while at a fellowship in Alabama, I planned on making a drawing about my relationship to my daily running practice, which included a route through local cemeteries as a way to minimize human contact. My daily ritual was transformed when I learned of the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, a young black man who was chased down and murdered while jogging in Brunswick, Georgia on Feb 23, 2020. After that, my daily practice was forever altered as I discovered Arbery’s story followed me on every run through the streets of Alabama and its historic cemeteries." ⁣⁣—⁣Esteban del Valle
⁣⁣—⁣
"The drawing series entitled «DEMONstration», explores rituals, ceremonies and other cultural phenomena related to mystical thinking in culture, aesthetics and politics." ⁣⁣—⁣Julia Kissina

Fatebe, the protagonist in the drawing panel featured here, is Ebecho Muslimova's cartoon alter ego, who finds herself in comprising situations that are both comedic and joyful. For Muslimova, Fatebe is an emotional tool used to help the artist to demonstrate and counter her own self-consciousness and anxieties.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Inspired by our current exhibition ‘David Hammons: Body Prints, 1968-1979,’ the workshop will begin with an interactive conversation on the techniques and concepts David Hammons employed to create his body print series, as well as the ways in which Hammons’s application of his own body (and the abstraction and morphing of it) created striking statements about race in America. Participants will further explore these ideas through a series of movement-based prompts led by teaching artist Blake Paskal @the_gayze that encourage the use of the body as a drawing tool. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"I have been making specific drawings, cartoons really, packed with humor and contradictions, skewed historicisms and personal critique, a satire and rage that spears to the heart of America as I see it, but more than that, I think. That being said, I trust Drawing as a vital language to unveil the stuff I cannot fully understand, and process information more intricately than my default conscious logic can unpack at any given moment." ⁣⁣—⁣Branden Koch
⁣⁣—⁣
"The image 'After Eero Saarinen’s Milwaukee County War Memorial Museum' was made in response to the Global War on Terrorism. The structure in the drawing is overpowered by nature, specifically the 'Bougainvillea glabra, Trinitarias or Paper flowers' a ubiquitous plant in the landscape of Puerto Rico. The museum was created to commemorate Veteran's Day. Thousands of Puerto Rican military personnel have lost their lives serving in the US military in wars where the goal and the outcomes remain unclear." ⁣⁣—⁣Gamaliel Rodriguez

Branden Koch and Gamaliel Rodriguez are artists participating in our new mentorship initiative Viewing Program 20/21 led by artist-in-residence Lisa Sigal. To learn more about the artists and Viewing Program 20/21, please click the link in our bio.

Join us for a two-part drawing workshop presented in partnership with @studiomuseum! Inspired by our current exhibition, ‘David Hammons: Body Prints, 1968-1979,’ the workshops will explore Hammons's body prints, a pivotal series of monoprints and collages in which the artist used the body as both a drawing tool and printing plate to explore performative, unconventional forms of image making.

The free online workshops (via zoom on Wednesday, May 5 and May 12 at 6pm EDT), will be led by teaching artist Blake Paskal @the_gayze. Building upon participatory discussions on David Hammons’s body print series, the workshops will encourage participants to explore how they can create their own prints by using the body as a drawing tool.

Amazing Article in Star R***e!
Just spent a heavenly and immersive 2 hours doing this online workshop with the Drawing Center. How wonderful to just kick back and respond intuitively to artists dealing with the same anxieties I am. The ways in which we find to work through this period is truly inspiring! Awesome exhibition!
