Drawing Room: AUGUST 5 – August 30
Open Sessions 4
Initiated in 2014, 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.
Nicolás Dumit Estévez and Laia Solé worked to chroma key the Drawing Center’s lobby with a vast array of green materials, allowing pre-recorded footage of activities in the streets of SOHO and Chinatown to flood the exhibition space. In e-, drawing and erasing become part of a concomitant process that incorporates two actions usually perceived as opposite to one another.
Organized by the artists and Nova Benway and Lisa Sigal, Curators of the Open Sessions program.
Open Sessions is made possible by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Faber-Castell, and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
