Opening tonight Thursday, March 10, at 6pm! Join us for an opening reception celebrating our two new exhibitions: "Fernanda Laguna: The Path of the Heart" and "Drawing in the Continuous Present."

"The Path of the Heart" is the first major survey to focus on renowned Argentine artist Fernanda Laguna’s expansive drawing practice. The exhibition highlights Laguna’s understanding of art as a language that communicates emotions and foregrounds the role of drawing throughout her work as a visual artist, and also as a writer, curator, activist, and cultural agitator.

Comprising nearly a hundred works on paper by thirteen artists from ten different countries, "Drawing in the Continuous Present" explores how a new generation of artists is placing drawing at the center of contemporary art discourse. It brings together works on paper by some of today’s most significant artistic voices, including Michael Armitage, Javier Barrios, Jesse Darling, Maren Karlson, Christine Sun Kim, Helen Marten, Jean Katambayi Mukendi, Julien Nguyen, Sanou Oumar, Walter Price, Florencia Rodríguez Giles, Johanna Unzueta, and He Xiangyu.

Last Chance! See "Ways of Seeing" before it closes today, February 20, at 6pm.

For the final iteration of the three-part exhibition, Jarrett Earnest takes the fundamentals of drawing as his starting point, organizing his installation around two drawings: one by Henri Michaux and the other by Vija Celmins. Beginning with Michaux, we follow a path of drawings along the south wall, moving from openness to precision. Beginning with Celmins, we journey along the north wall from clarity and containment to the dissolution of the mark into the surface. The result is a dynamic, fluid space that visualizes the idea that works of art are always impacted by the context in which they are seen and received.

It's the last week to visit "Ways of Seeing: Three Takes on the Jack Shear Collection," which closes this Sunday, February 20!

Curator Jarrett Earnest approached his iteration of this special three-part exhibition as an exploration of drawing on a fundamental level. With color as the guiding principal for the installation's back gallery, Earnest underscores the idea that works of art are impacted by the context in which they are seen and received, explaining, "when color enters the pictorial field, it completely restructures the way that the image gets constituted."

Now available for pre-order, the second volume of "Ways of Seeing" offers a comprehensive view of the three-part exhibition "Ways of Seeing: Three Takes on the Jack Shear Drawing Collection," which focuses on the extraordinary drawing collection of artist, curator, and President of the Ellsworth Kelly Foundation Jack Shear. Taken together, the exhibition’s successive iterations—curated by Jack Shear, Arlene Shechet, and Jarrett Earnest, respectively—offer a revealing experiment in connoisseurship and exhibition-making.

The second volume of "Ways of Seeing" features extensive photographic documentation of all three iterations, thus providing the first opportunity to consider each installation in relation to the others. Essays by Shear, Shechet, and Earnest illuminate the curators' singular approaches to installing the collection, as well as offering reflections on their participation in this unique curatorial project. Taken together, the images and essays affirm the way in which context affects content when viewing works of art.

Join us next Tuesday, December 14, at 6pm for an evening of readings from our newest publication "Ways of Seeing: Writings on Drawings from the Jack Shear Collection," which takes as its subject what contributor Nick Mauss calls the “singular fluency between drawing and writing.” Hilton Als will introduce authors Nick Mauss, Charlie Porter, Brenda Shaughnessy, Clare Sestanovich, and Jennifer Krasinski, who will each read selections from their contributions to the publication.

Building on the exhibition’s themes of perception and personal vision, the writers were asked to reflect on drawings of their choosing from the expansive collection of Jack Shear. The group of authors offer us poignant and insightful stories, poems, personal ruminations, and visual analyses of objects from across countries and centuries. The result is a unique marriage of visual art and literature.

Over the past year, sixty artists participated our Viewing Program 20/21 initiative, which centered on providing mentorship and support for contemporary artists through virtual studio visits and portfolio reviews. In our final post highlighting work from the program, we’d like to thank each of the participating artists for sharing their art and practices with us. Below, you can read more about our featured artists Javier Romero, Erin Murray and Sofia Quirno:

"I am merging drawing and collage to explore the possibilities of abstraction and geometry, while also interested in the sculptural dynamics of the process using basic tools like graphite and colored pencil. Through this I investigate opposing concepts, such as density/lightness, positive/negative, control/random." - Javier Romero

"I think of my work as describing an alignment of interiority and exteriority; referencing the mingling of psyche and design that we encounter in daily life. Drawing allows me to express this in-between state of being, bringing the sharp palpability of lived experience in balance with the ambiguous nature of thought and memory." - Erin Murray 

"I doodle while the TV is on. The images and words coming from the screen converge with my own inner voices and mental representations, resulting in mixtures of what is seen and heard with what was already within me. These montages are the basis of my work at the studio. This piece plays with the imaginary life and interaction between objects and explores the psychological conditionings to existing schemes." - Sofia Quirno

Continuing The Drawing Center’s longstanding mission of supporting contemporary artists and their drawing practices, Viewing Program 20/21 provided mentorship to sixty artists in the form of virtual studio visits. Read more about three of the participating artists—Shellyne Rodriguez, Luis Almeida, and LaNia Sproles—below:

"Local deejays Uptown Vinyl Supreme craft the playlist for their next party in their Bronx apartment, and preserve the art of the sound selector, vital as one of the elements of Hip Hop Culture." - Shellyne Rodriguez

"'The Return of the One,' was inspired by the painting 'Flaying of Marsyas' by Titian and it shows a hypothetical return of Jesus Christ surrounded by paparazzi on the red carpet." - Luis Almeida

"A self portrait that pictures three figures exposing their vulvas in an ordinary urban landscape. The multiple portrait is inspired by the mythological bond of the Greek Charite sisters. Each self is portrayed in different clothing but work together to cathartically respond to their environment." - LaNia Sproles

"Ways of Seeing: Three Takes on the Jack Shear Drawing Collection" is a three-part exhibition that focuses on the extraordinary drawing collection of artist, curator, and President of the Ellsworth Kelly Foundation, Jack Shear.

In the first installation of "Ways of Seeing," on view through November 7, Shear places drawings in clusters to encourage viewers to experience the drawings in relationship to each other. His unorthodox curatorial vision reinforces the fundamental truth that interpretations of art are always impacted by both our own sensibilities and by the context in which objects are seen and received.

Artist, curator, and President of the Ellsworth Kelly Foundation, Jack Shear compared his method of installation and hanging artworks to working with the alphabet, in that, in putting drawings together, you see things that you wouldn’t see otherwise. Shear places drawings alongside, directly on top of, or abutting other works on the basis of intuited visual affinities regardless of context or historical provenance.

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!
