Please join us Thursday, July 14 for the opening reception of Gabriel de la Mora: Sound Inscriptions on Fabric and Open Sessions 7 .


The event is FREE and open to the public.


In the Main Gallery, The Drawing Center will present Gabriel de la Mora: Sound Inscriptions on Fabric, an installation of fifty-five pairs of found speaker screens. Each screen is imprinted with an inscription created by the dust and air that circulated through the speaker during its life, recording the cadence of countless voices, advertisements, news broadcasts, soap operas, football games, and music, as well as noise, interference, and silence.


In The Lab, Open Sessions 7 gives an opportunity for selected artists to find new approaches for contextualizing and exhibiting their work, through exhibitions, public programs, and conversation. The artists selected for Open Sessions may or may not draw as their primary means of art-making. The two-year program engages musicians, architects, dancers, poets—anyone who is interested in expanding the boundaries of drawing.
