Add to Calendar 21-09-2013 02-02-2014 15 Dorothea Rockburne: Drawing Which Makes Itself "How could drawing be of itself and not about something else?" Dorothea Rockburne's 1973 exhibition at the Bykert Gallery in New York, a touchstone in modern drawing practice, aimed to addressing the artist's query. Using the wall as her surface, Rockburne created a series of works using carbon paper, which she folded and manipulated to create a carefully mapped network of ruled lines that engaged the viewer visually and bodily, shaping their perception of the gallery space and challenging expectations of what a drawing can be. The exhibition Dorothea Rockburne: Drawing Which Makes Itself pays homage to the artist's groundbreaking project of the same name, with a group of major carbon paper and wall works -- including Nesting and Neighborhood, from MoMA's collection -- exhibited together for the first time since 1973. Contextualizing the wall drawings is a selection of Rockburne's works on paper and paintings from that decade, all selected from MoMA's strong holdings of her work. The exhibition highlights the concerns that have occupied the artist since her early career, including the application of mathematical principles, and her continued engagement with, and challenge of, the methods and practice of drawing. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=142928 Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) true DD/MM/YYYY

Venue Description: MoMA's rich and varied collection constitutes one of the most comprehensive and panoramic views into modern art in the world, and has grown to include over 135,000 paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, sculptures, films, and design objects. Visitors to New York City should make sure to stop in and view the collection during their vacations. Founded in 1929 as an educational institution, The Museum of Modern Art is dedicated to being the foremost museum of modern art in the world. Central to The Museum of Modern Art's mission is the encouragement of an ever-deeper understanding and enjoyment of modern and contemporary art by the diverse local, national, and international audiences that it serves. The Museum of Modern Art seeks to create a dialogue between the established and the experimental, the past and the present, in an environment that is responsive to the issues of modern and contemporary art, while being accessible to a public that ranges from scholars to young children. MoMA also has three restaurants on the premises: Café 2, is the museum's sophisticated cafeteria; Terrace 5 is a full-service café where guests can indulge in creative savory selections, delectable pastries and ice cream sundaes, inventive specialty cocktails, micro-brewed beers, and carefully selected wines; and The Modern offers the original, Alsatian-inspired cuisine of Chef Gabriel Kreuther, recently awarded three stars by The New York Times.
