This event has ended.

Open Sessions 2018–2020: What’s Love Got to Do with It? is an exhibition by the thirty-one artists who are participating in Open Sessions, a two-year program at The Drawing Center that provides opportunities for selected artists from around the world to contextualize their work in terms of drawing through conversation, public programs, and exhibitions. Featuring new drawings and drawing adjacent works by a diverse and international group of artists who come from myriad perspectives and geographic locations ranging from the Americas to Africa, Asia and the Middle East, What’s Love Got to Do With It? takes as its theme, the universal discourse of love, which, the curators contend, is as democratic as drawing is. Translations of the drawing medium in video, performance, three-dimensional notation and non-conventional mark-making, the works in What’s Love Got to Do with It? celebrate drawing with irreverence and wit. And most definitely with love.

Organized by Rosario Güiraldes and Lisa Sigal, Open Sessions Curators.
