Next Tuesday, the Morgan Library & Museum will host “Drawing in the Computer Age,” a lecture by Rachel Federman, Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Drawings and curator of the exhibition By Any Means: Contemporary Drawings from the Morgan. Federman’s talk will investigate the intersection of drawing and computer technology in contemporary art.

The event draws on changes occurring in the 1960s, when many artists became more interested in the field of computing. At the time, computers began to appear on college campuses, allowing artists access to explore the technology as it related to their own work.

The event is free for students and museum members and $15 for non-members. Tickets can be purchased here and entrance includes museum admission.

When: Tuesday, March 5, 12 pm
Where: The Morgan Library & Museum, 225 Madison Avenue, Murray Hill, Manhattan
