The act of drawing has long been considered the foundation of an artistic education, and the life class essential to the formation of an artist's style and technique. Yet in the contemporary art world, drawing is increasingly regarded as a medium in its own right, and the figure as a subject for ongoing exploration well beyond the sketchbook. Drawing People—the publication—is a thoughtful and beautifully illustrated survey of the most compelling and inventive drawings of the human form being produced today by seventy contemporary artists from around the world.
Join Brett Littman, Executive Director of The Drawing Center, with artists Chloe Piene and Dasha Shishkin, whose work is featured in Drawing People for a discussion about their drawing practices and life within one of the most creatively rich and emotionally powerful forms of art being made today.
Artists Chloe Piene and Dasha Shishkin will sign copies of Drawing People after the talk.
