The exhibition DRAWN (OVER): Contemporary Drawing from LeRoy Neiman Until Today is a part of an international project DRAW that was launched by the LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies at Columbia University in New York.
In cooperation with the Museum of Contemporary Art of Vojvodina in Novi Sad, Serbia, The exhibition DRAWN (OVER) brings together the private sketches and drawings of seventy artists from around the world in an exhibition that provides a rare, revealing look into the drawing process and artists’ innermost thoughts.
The exhibition seeks to unearth a raw form of creative energy channeling the essential truth of an artist no pasteurized for public consumption. Unlike artwork created for public or commercial use, the diverse array of works included in DRAWN (OVER) will reveal an authenticity that exists in intimate spaces hidden from the public eye such as an artist’s sketchbook or studio. By focusing on the medium of drawing, the purpose of this exhibition is to showcase not the finished, polished products of traditional art exhibitions but rather the authentic, unfiltered beginning of something recorded through drawing.
