I’ll be participating in a group exhibition at the Drawing Center entitled “The Intuitionists” from July 11th - August 24th 2014.
July 11 – August 24, 2014
Main Gallery and The Lab
Opening Reception: Thursday, July 10, 6–8pm
New York – The Drawing Center will present The Intuitionists, a collaborative project organized by artists Heather Hart, Steffani Jemison, and Jina Valentine, and curated by Lisa Sigal, Open Sessions Curator. Inspired by Colson Whitehead’s 1999 novel The Intuitionist—a work of speculative fiction that explores the relationship between progress, technology, and difference—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 artworks and ephemera by over sixty artist members of the Viewing Program.
The artists searched the Viewing Program registry for work that exist at the intersection of unusual keywords. These Viewing Program artists were then invited to submit an artwork that responded to a word or phrase from the novel. The artworks in The Intuitionists exhibition will be hung according to the sequence determined by Whitehead’s book. The Lab will feature a collaboration by Hart, Jemison, and Valentine inspired by Whitehead’s book The Intuitionist , using letters of the alphabet to form an interpretive drawing. The artists in The Intuitionist are: Shaun Acton, Valerio Berruti, A.J. Bocchino, Dana Boussard, Hannah Burr, Maria Bussman, Enrique Chagoya, Joyce Chan, Catalina Chervin, Hannah Cole, Kenny Cole, Vincent Colvin, Hollis Cooper, Cui Fei, Gabriel Delgado, Wendy DesChene, Asya Dodina and Slava Polishchuk, Debra Drexler, Derek Dunlop, Elisabeth Eberle, Lisa Endriss, Rodney Ewing, Tory Fair, Douglas Florian, Nicholas Fraser, Carl Fudge, Brett Goodroad, Barry Gray, Stephen Grossman, Nathan Haenlein, Patrick Earl Hammie, Skowmon Hastanan, HENSE, Elizabeth Hoak-Doering, Cynthia Ona Innis, Tatiana Istomina, Hedwige Jacobs, Chiaki Kamikawa, Manfred Kirschner, Kimia Kline, Nicholas Knight, Kang Joo Lee, Kate Tessa Lee, Cynthia Lin, Hung Liu, Maess, Mario Marzan, Linn Meyers, Nyeema Morgan, Paul Morrison, Seamus Liam O’Brien, Alison Owen, Jenny Perlin, Mel Prest, Jo Ann Rothschild, Anna Schachte, Fausto Sevila, Jill Shoffiet, Thomas Slaughter, Chris Spinelli, Karen Tam, Caroline Tavelli-Abar, Scott Teplin, Jen Urso, Kris Van Dessel, Kara Walker, and Margaret Withers.
ABOUT THE VIEWING PROGRAM
Since 1977, when The Drawing Center opened, the Viewing Program has been vital to the institution and beneficial to artists worldwide. Selections exhibitions, curated from the Viewing Program registry, allowed the institution to present new trends, methods, and expansive approaches in the field of drawing. Selections shows were also often important platforms for introducing artists to a broader public. The Intuitionists is the final Selections show, as the Viewing Program’s core values and legacy will be continued by The Drawing Center’s new program, Open Sessions.
