Curated by Franklin Evans.

Regeneration Room is an expansion upon Evans’ Regeneration Wall, a family tree of works on paper exhibited at The Drawing Center in the Fall of 2005.

The individual works produced through the project demonstrate the variety of approaches that artists use to come to grips with influences and history: from the seed becoming elements of the narrative (Holly Coulis, Bart De Koning Gans, Gina Magid) to the seed becoming part of the process (Randy Wray, Chris Jahncke, Jason Duval, Elana Herzog, Julia Randall); from the seed as formal determinant (Devin Leonardi, Perry Hu, Ann Pibal, Amanda Church, Ruby Palmer) to the seed as concept (Joyce Kim); and from the seed as incidental (Federico Solmi and Satoru Eguchi) to the seed as absence (Melanie Baker, the metaphorical Eve of the project, who had no seed since she was the randomly selected first artist to make a piece of work, from which all other pieces in later generations derived).
