Gary Simmons: Ghost Reels
Oct 07-Jan 14
As part of its on-going stairwell project, The Drawing Center has commissioned American artist Gary Simmons to create a site-specific wall drawing in the lobby stairwell. Simmons created a text-based work consisting of names of African American actors and actresses from the early days of silent film.

Judith Bernstein: Cabinet of Horrors
Oct 13-Feb 04
Judith Bernstein: Cabinet of Horrors presents a new body of work by the artist, specifically commissioned by The Drawing Center. Focusing on work made since Donald J. Trump was elected president in November 2016, the exhibition includes approximately eighteen new drawings, four large-scale paper panel murals, a series of drawn ''dollar bills'', vintage piggy banks in a vitrine, and a free political campaign pin designed by Bernstein.

Eddie Martinez: Studio Wall
Oct 13-Feb 04
Stylistically evocative of mid-century abstraction, Martinezs drawings bring their own complexity, plugging a rotating cast of characters into raw, vigorously-drawn landscapes: cartoon ducks, oversized eyes, coiled snakes, and anthropomorphic blocks of color are among his itinerant motifs.

Raha Raissnia: Alluvius
Dec 01-Feb 04
Anticipating an audience whose reading of drawing is informed by new media, Iranian-born artist Raha Raissnia sources her densely-composed charcoal works from her films, each a document of the artist's private life.
