Viewing Program 20/21

Viewing Program 20/21, a new initiative that builds upon the organization’s forty-year history of offering opportunities and support to contemporary artists, offers sixty participating artists mentorship in the form of virtual studio visits by The Drawing Center’s Artist in Residence, Lisa Sigal, and portfolio reviews by The Drawing Center’s curatorial team. From this pool of sixty artists, six will be selected by The Drawing Center’s curators to introduce their work to our audience through an online program series of public events.

Viewing Program 20/21 continues The Drawing Center’s longstanding support of contemporary drawing practices and practitioners. In 1977 the organization initiated its original Viewing Program, in which artists from around the globe submitted their portfolios to The Drawing Center’s artist in residence, and were considered for inclusion in Selections, an exhibition series that featured drawings by emerging talents. In 2013, The Drawing Center initiated Open Sessions, a residency program that provided artists the opportunity to participate in an ongoing dialogue with their peers through public events and exhibitions. Many artists who participated in these programs have since made significant contributions to the field of contemporary art, including Zoe Beloff, Berlinde de Bruyckere, Liz Collins, Danielle Dean, Marcel Dzama, Katharina Grosse, Steffani Jemison, Guadalupe Maravilla, Harold Mendez, Julie Mehretu, Ronny Quevedo, Johanna Unzueta, Rodrigo Valenzueal, and Erwin Wurm.
