100 Drawings from Now

Featuring drawings made by an international group of artists since early 2020, 100 Drawings from Now provides a snapshot of artistic production during a period of profound global unrest that has resulted from the ongoing health and economic crises, as well as a surge of activism in response to systemic racism, social injustice, and police brutality in the United States. Together, the works in the exhibition spotlight the urgency, intimacy, and universality of drawing during moments of upheaval and isolation.

In Torkwase Dyson’s words, “I’m drawing now because I need to….I feel a chorus in my space of solitude and I’m making because of it.” 100 Drawings from Now amplifies this chorus, showing the myriad ways that drawing can act as a vital connective force, a respite, a demonstration of pain or anger in the face of injustice, and an essential expression of one’s humanity.

100 Drawings from Now is organized by Claire Gilman, Chief Curator, Rosario Güiraldes, Assistant Curator, and Laura Hoptman, Executive Director, with Isabella Kapur, Curatorial Assistant.
