THE INTUITIONISTS and SMALL. Exhibitions Closing 8/24 at The Drawing Center
Two exhibitions at The Drawing Center are coming to a close on August 24 -- The Intuitionists and Small.
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 as a point of departure, the exhibition installation features works by over 60 Viewing Program artists. The Lab features a collaboration by the artists Hart, Jemison, and Valentine inspired by Whitehead's book, using letters of the alphabet to form an interpretive drawing.In tandem Small. is on view in the Drawing Room gallery. This group exhibition 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 selected works range from graphite photo-realist renderings to interventions in found objects to site-specific installations, including a custom-made tabletop bearing microscopic figurations and a postage-stamp-sized watercolor inserted directly into the gallery wall.
