Drawings have, for centuries, offered viewers an immediate and intimate glimpse of the artist’s imagination. Since the late 19th century, artists have made the argument that drawings can posses intrinsic qualities that make them a major art form in its own right. By the 1920s, artists were challenging the concept of drawing by redefining ideas about line and space. Today, through the use of nontraditional media, many have energized its force and visual impact.
On view will be works by Nancy Grossman, Will Barnet, Jack Pierson, Albert Oehlen and others who employ drawing as an independent and powerful expression.
