The Campaign for Art

Drawings, Part II

September 24, 2016–January 2017

Floor 2

This exhibition of contemporary drawings reveals the daring, playful, and thoughtful ways artists engage with their time and explore the medium. The second of a two-part exhibition of works pledged to the museum through the Campaign for Art, Drawings, Part II presents works on paper from the 1980s to today. The drawings, collages, and watercolors on view demonstrate the diversity of approaches artists have taken in recent decades to exploring the figure, along with narrative, abstraction, and vernacular culture. Artists presented include Mark Grotjahn, Martin Kippenberger, Sherrie Levine, Shahzia Sikander, and Christopher Wool, among others.
