Open Calls


Drawing

December 13, 2019– January 11, 2020

What is the relationship between recycling and art? We constantly seek out ways to deal with what we produce, Drawing

Drawing has been radically transformed in the last 100 years, as countless artists reimagined the traditional concepts of drawing and expanded the medium's definition beyond gesture and form. This expanded definition included mark-making that ventured off the paper, into multimedia, film, sculpture and much else. However, in recent years, many artists have returned to a more gestural and representational mode. In this new and dynamic tension between tradition and experimental visions, Site:Brooklyn is looking for works, across all mediums and processes, which showcase the diversity and range of drawing’s place in contemporary art.
