For this exhibition in the Drawing Room, the artist William Anastasi will recreate seminal site-specific works dating from the mid-1960s. These early pieces are a testament to the artist’s interest and pioneering efforts in site-specific projects, as well as in the medium of drawing. The artworks incisively explore the nature and behavior of drawing in the gallery space through different strategies, bringing to the surface questions about site and medium specificity, materiality, and the dematerialization of the art object. By focusing on the artist’s expansive approach to the medium, the exhibition aims to contribute to a much deserved critical reconsideration of Anastasi’s oeuvre.
