Be a Part of Art Making History - Draftmen's Congress @ New Museuem

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.


Thank you,


Eddie

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. Using pen, charcoal, paint and collage, the participants and the public engaged in conversation with one another through drawings and paintings that explored a manifold of artistic, social and political themes.”

    What a great event! so much fun. The curator said that the last week of this they will be giving out the art works by pieces, I wonder if we can come there again as a group and do a last minute art before they take it down :)

    I'm wimping out at the last minute guys. And as much fun as this is likely to be, the weather and a sudden urgency will prevent me from taking part. While meditating, I exhaled longer than I inhaled and ran out of breath. Saying hi to Eddie & Melissa. Being in the moment, somewhere else. Ommmm.....

    I am not going to make this event -due to snow--I am afraid I will be snowed in in Jersey and would rather give my spot to someone else. Hope to make the next gathering.
