EXHIBITION

THE PROJECTIVE DRAWING

TUESDAY, FEB 06 2018, - SUNDAY, MAY 13 2018

 

THE PROJECTIVE DRAWING
FEBRUARY 6 - MAY 13, 2018
Austrian Cultural Forum New York
11 East 52nd Street, New York

Artists on view:
William Cordova, Lionel Favre, Sara Flores and the Shipibo Conibo Center, New York, Simona Koch, Brigitte Mahlknecht, Judith Saupper, Seher Shah, James Siena, Katrín Sigurdardóttir, and Leopold Strobl.

The exhibition is based on The Projective Cast, a book published in 1995 by architectural historian Robin Evans that defines a new way to explain how we "see" architecture by incorporating all sensations that underpin the human experience of built structures (mental, physical, and emotional). In The Projective Drawing, curator Brett Littman applies Evans's theory, which is skeptical of drawing at its core, to challenge and expand our understanding of how the medium of drawing operates in contemporary culture. Within the striking architecture of the Austrian Cultural Forum New York, designed by Raimund Abraham in 1992, the exhibition includes both Austrian and international artists who require viewers to activate a matrix of complex and nontraditional ideas in order to interpret the works on view.
