Where Do We Stand?: Two Years of Drawing with Open Sessions is the second whole-group exhibition of the Open Sessions program. It includes all thirty-six artists in the 2016-17 program, giving the first floor of the museum over to an exploration of contemporary drawing, encompassing video, sculpture, photography, and installation, as well as traditional drawing forms.
Every two years Open Sessions invites a large group of artists, chosen via open call, to 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.
