I was very happy to see the exhibition, but I was not surprised that Ken Price (1935–2012) had to wait until he was safe in heaven dead to have his first museum show in New York, Ken Price Sculpture: A Retrospective, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
The Drawing Center reopens today in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood and the $10 million renovation not only provides 50% more exhibition space (4,300 sq ft) but a clean seemingly ego-less space that refracts slivers of natural ambient light into galleries and offers an ideal frame with which to look at drawing of all kinds.
After a year of renovations, The Drawing Center will open its doors at 35 Wooster Street on Thursday, September 13, 2012. The $9.6 million expansion gives the non-profit a hearty 9,150 square feet of space for three separate galleries, doubling its previous size.
Tonight’s invite-only symposium organized by The Drawing Center invited five artists and two curators to explore the state of drawing today. Here’s my report.
