This group exhibition focuses on a growing trend within drawing: the meticulous translation of images from photographs and photo-based media. Concentrating on instances of social and political transformation, these thirteen contemporary artists present a novel approach to the drawn medium. In their hands, drawing as rote translation signals a desire for agency coupled with a sense of the distance between “reality out there” and our attempts to comprehend or transform it. Drawn from Photography is curated by Claire Gilman and organized by The Drawing Center, New York.
