It was only a couple of minutes before midnight, when one of the last of the 13 artists arrived at Camel Art Space in East Williamsburg for the show 48 HRS. It was Rebecca Goyette, encumbered with a large bag, sawing machine and a folding table. “I can’t believe I’m doing this,” she said, laughing as the door of the black cab slammed behind her.
Artist Julie Torres hosted two months of collaborative drawing nights at Hyperallergic HQ in February and March of this year. The project generated 100 drawings that are currently on display at Norte Maar in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The resulting show, titled So Happy Together: Forty-five Artists and Their One Hundred Collaborative Drawings, opened last night during the first night of the 2011 Bushwick Open Studios.
