The Drawing Center
The only not-for-profit institution in the country to focus on the exhibition of drawings, it was established to demonstrate the significance and diversity of drawings throughout history, to juxtapose work by master figures with work by emerging and under-recognized artists, and to stimulate public dialogue on issues of art and culture.
Main Gallery: Guillermo Kuitca: Diarios (November 8, 2012 - December 9, 2012) |
Guillermo Kuitca: Diarios will be the first U.S. museum exhibition of a selection of paintings made from 2005 to the present. Since 1994, Kuitca has taken failed and discarded canvases, stretched them over an abandoned table from his parents’ garden, and then spent periods of time ranging from three to six months creating intentional and accidental doodles, drawings, and recordings on their surfaces.
Drawing Room José Antonio Suárez Londoño: The Yearbooks (November 8 – December 9, 2012)
This exhibition will include a selection of notebooks (also referred to as “yearbooks”) dating from 1997 to the present. Works will be taken from the Colombian artist’s ongoing project in which he creates a daily drawing based on a book or series of books that he reads over the course of a year. Loose drawings excerpted from José Antonio Suárez Londoño’s sketchbooks will be exhibited alongside notebooks and select source books in vitrines.
