From February 22 to March 27, 2008, The Drawing Center will present Selections Spring 2008, a group exhibition in the Main Gallery featuring the work of nine emerging artists chosen from the Viewing Program. Curator Nina Katchadourian selected the artists in the exhibition through an associative process, sifting through notes from a year’s worth of portfolio review meetings and browsing the newly launched online artist registry to gather together these works which, through their various styles and approaches, reflect the breadth and complexity of drawing today. The shared characteristics and artistic motivations of the works in the exhibition range from atmospheric to topographical, from diagrammatic tendencies to casually obsessive ones. Placed in the company of the others, each body of work affects the viewing experience of the next, while retroactively changing the memory of the preceding one.
Participating artists include: Hannah Burr, David Clarkson, Isabelle Cornaro, Dianna Frid, Brian Lund, Tina Schneider, Casey Jex Smith, Kate Smith, and Andrea Sulzer. Selections Spring 2008 is curated by Viewing Program Curator Nina Katchadourian.
