We don't usually do exhibition visits, nor something as low-tech as participating in a public drawing project, but this installation from Pawel Althamer is truly a joy and something to behold.
Draftsmen's Congress is a participatory installation currently occupying the 4th floor of the New Museum as part of the Pawel Althamer retrospective, "The Neighbors." (http://www.newmuseum.org/exhibitions/view/pawel-althamer) Over the course of the exhibition, the blank white space of the New Museum’s Fourth Floor gallery is being transformed through the gradual accumulation of drawings and paintings by Museum visitors and a wide array of invited community organizations.
See the installation in progress. (http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/02/17/pawel-althamer-creates-art-that-s-by-the-people-for-the-people-at-the-new-museum.html)
ArtsTech has been selected as one of the invited groups to contribute to the installation.
On Saturday, March 1st we will meet at the New Museum at 12 NOON to make our mark on the Draftsmen's Congress.
