Name It by Trying to Name It: Open Sessions 2014-15 at The Drawing Center, July 17 – August 30, 2015

“Initiated in 2014, Open Sessions is a new program at The Drawing Center through which a large group of artists consider their relationship to drawing as medium, process, and metaphor. Working together over a two-year period, Open Sessions artists participate in ongoing studio visits and discussions, punctuated by small group exhibitions at The Drawing Center, as well as other self-organized shows in New York and abroad.” —  The Drawing Center
