Drawing in Space

September 28, 2017 – January 21, 2018
I. M. Pei building / Richard Meier building / Anna K. Meredith Gallery / Lobby

Drawing in Space includes the work of three artists and one artist collective: Dave Eppley (New York), Monika Grzymala (Berlin), Numen/For Use (Vienna, Zagreb), and Heeseop Yoon (New York). Uniting these artists are explorations of line and space through the creation of large-scale, site-specific installations using a novel yet humble material, tape. At the Art Center, the artists will create works in their chosen locations including the floor of the lobby, the three-story wall of Kyle J. and Sharon Krause Atrium of the Richard Meier building, the Anna K. Meredith Gallery, and the entire I. M. Pei building.

Drawing in Space is organized by Senior Curator Alison Ferris.
