Drawing in the Continuous Present takes its title from Gertrude Stein’s coinage of the term “continuous present” which the artist Amy Sillman used to describe a key element of drawing. The notion of the “continuous present” provides a metaphor for the ways in which the featured artists employ drawing’s immediacy to mediate their relationships with the world. Guided by The Drawing Center’s long-standing support of contemporary drawing practices and practitioners Drawing in the Continuous Present will highlight modes of drawing that reflect a multiplicity of experience and a diversity of artistic production.
