Please join us Thursday, July 10 from 6-8pm for the opening reception of The Intuitionists and Small.
In the Main Gallery and The Lab, The Intuitionists is a collaborative project by artists Heather Hart, Steffani Jemison, and Jina Valentine. Inspired by Colson Whitehead's novel The Intuitionist, the exhibition considers how the collection, the database, and the aggregate serve as complementary models for the organization of information and objects in flux. Using the keywords that organize The Drawing Center’s Viewing Program database (e.g., “autobiographical,” “geometric,” “historical,” “consumer culture”) as a point of departure, the exhibition installation will feature works by over sixty artists who are members of the Viewing Program. Organized by Heather Hart, Steffani Jemison, and Jina Valentine. Curated Lisa Sigal, Open Sessions Curator.
In the Drawing Room, Small. is group exhibition that 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. The artists in Small. are: Firelei Báez (b. 1981, Santiago de los Trenta Caballeros, Dominican Republic), Emmanouil Bitsakis (b. 1974, Athens, Greece), Paul Chiappe (b. 1984, Kircady, Scotland), Claire Harvey (b. 1975, United Kingdom), Tom Molloy, (b. 1964, Waterford, Ireland), Rita Ponce de León (b. 1982, Lima, Peru), Peggy Preheim (b. 1963, Yankton, SD), James Sheehan (b. 1964, San Francisco, CA), and Tinus Vermeersch (b. 1976, Belgium).
