Be a part of art making history
New Museum of New York invited Dharma Drink members to participate in the making of Draftmen’s Congress exhibit. This is a collaborative artwork and message board where participants get to draw, paint, and write in the museum’s fourth floor gallery. Over the course of the project, participants and public will create a large many layered artwork.
We will be part of the invited groups comprising of individuals who draw or designs as part of their careers such as artists, art students, art professors, graphic designers, architects, cartoonists, engineers, and individuals belonging to a diverse range of social and political groups so as to use this as a platform of discussion. When the art is complete, it will be divided into pieces and distributed to the public and participants.
Due to the limitation on time slots available, we are scheduled to go on a weekday in mid-February. The participants would also have to leave work early or will not have enough time to draw. The details of the date and time will be emailed to participants
- The event begin at 5pm or earlier, this means that the any 9-5 worker bees would need to leave work early.
- We ask Dharma Drink members be responsible to their “Yes” RSVP. We need to provide the New Museum with realistic number of participant.
- The New Museum prefers that we come in as a group. We will provide name tags and we will meet and go in as a group.
Please send me a message if you like to participate in the event.
New Museum: “ The Draftsmen’s Congress was previous realized as part of the 7th berlin biennale in 2012 Covering the inside of the St. Elisabeth Church in Berlin-‐Mitte with white paper, Althamer invited various groups and individuals to contribute to a large wall work that developed over the course of the 7th berlin biennale.
