Opening Reception for “Open Sessions: Drawings in Context/Field”

03.07.15, 5:00 pm

On View March 7-29, 2015

There will be a Video Screening on March 21, 5-8pm, Details TBD

Encompassing practices in video, photography, drawing and sculpture, this exhibition is focused on the notion of ‘field/context’ as a political, historical, spatial, and technological construct.

In order to analyze contexts and fields artists utilize various modes of making. The artists presented do not attempt to resolve or locate their practices within any given mode of representation. Encompassing practices in video, sound, photography, drawing, performance and sculpture the works herein negotiate with spaces both ambiguous and direct.

Participating Artists:

Amadeo Azar
Daniel Barroca
Lea Cetera
Youmna Chlala
Onyedika Chuke
Alexandra Lerman
Harold Mendez
Marcelo Moscheta
Ronny Quevedo

The participating artists in Open Sessions: Drawings in Context/Field are members of the Open Sessions program at The Drawing Center, which fosters a dynamic, ever-evolving conversation with new drawing practices and practitioners, viewing drawing as an activity rather than a product. The exhibition is organized by Onyedika Chuke, a participant in Queens Museum’s Artist Studio Program and The Drawing Center’s Open Sessions participant.

Note: There will be a free shuttlebus making loops from under the Mets/Willets Point 7 Train Stop and the Museum from 4:30-7:40pm.
